Victorian Village Collectible 1996 Edition, The Blackburn Tavern. Hand
painted lighted procelain tavern. This is a beautiful piece and very well
done. Has orginal box. Shipping is $10.25 and insurance is $1.10 extra,

This auction is for five BLACKBURN jelly jars with metal lids. These
jars came with jelly in them and can be used for drinking glasses. Each
one is shaped like a mug and is made of clear glass. Each one has it's
original lid. All are in super good condition. I believe these would hold
about 12 ounces of liquid and they measure 5 1/4" high. My neighbor
has saved these glasses and has asked me to put them on eBay for her. She
says they are nice to drink from or put your own homemade jelly in.
