Dandy kerosene jarBy Mark Chervenka
"Dandy" kerosene jar
This new 13-inch kerosene jar is copied from a vintage original. The name "Dandy" is embossed in raised letters in the metal shell. Inside the shell is a glass jar. The open panels in the shell allowed the user to monitor the level of kerosene and refill as needed.
This piece was made in India and sold by a US wholesaler for $16.50 each. The metal is "antiqued" at the factory to a dull brown finish.
