I found this Waterford biscuit barrel a couple of years ago at a thrift store. A "biscuit barrel" is the English name for a cookie jar. It was very dirty and full of small soaps, but I knew what it was immediately. I think I paid $3 and when I got it home and cleaned it up it was clearly marked "Waterford" on the bottom.
Alas, it had no lid. I tried to find a replacement online but the replacements I found cost $75! For just the lid!
So I've been on the hunt since then and look what I found yesterday, another jar with a lid. Would it fit? I decided it was worth the $2.50 gamble.
Ta da! A perfect fit! Yes, I know the Waterford lid is cut crystal, but this is a pretty good substitute.
These jars became very popular when President Reagan used to keep them on his desk full of jelly beans.
I love how it sparkles!
These typically retail for about $135.00 so I think I got a steal for $5.50!
