HONEY POTS

These jars or pots are somewhat of a mystery as to their original use. Jane Wilson says they were jam jars. Herbert Schiffer does not picture them in his book. It is now generally believed they were made to hold honey. Intriguing are the 4 small holes in the top rims. It is believed string went through the holes to hang the pots up in the pantry to keep ants out! They are rare and costly.
