Jadite Rolling Pin with Advertising

This new jadite rolling pin with advertising is in the market. The new pin is 14 inches long. It is printed with black letters, "Kardov, Famous Self-Rising Flour." One end is closed; the opposite end is open and plugged with a cork. The sample shown here was $20. It arrived from the wholesaler with a "Made in Taiwan" paper label.

No similar vintage jadite rolling pin is known. The only authentic pre-1965 jadite rolling pins are those made by McKee Glass. Original McKee jadite pins have a screw-on metal caps on one end, not a cork. However, Fenton has been reproducing new jadite double-ring style McKee rolling pins from the original McKee mold for several years.
