Notes The jar was used to store sugar and there is sugar adhered to the inside of the jar and lid. Tried to remove with dry cloth, but needs to be professionally done as to not remove the exterior paint as well. A- Paint on sides is faded and worn. Stain from liquid on the back of the jar. Light surface scratches. On interior of top lip there is wear. Appears glass was frosted and that is worn in some locations. B- Lid has light surface scratches. By the seam in the glass on the lower side on the smaller part of knob there looks to be a small crack in the glass running horizontally.
