One of the rarest and perhaps most appealing of all collectible fruit jars, this aqua quart is embossed on the front with a pictorial of a woman in a pleated dress holding a jar in one hand and pointing up with the other hand to the embossed logo "THE LADIES FAVORITE". On the reverse side is embossed in flourished block lettering "Wm L HALLER CARLISLE PA". This is the extremely rare version with the H&S style cast iron cage-type closure assembly. The closure is in good intact condition with some pitting to the 150-yr-old metal, but still part of the lettering is readable on the cap. The thumbscrew still works smoothly. There is a spot on one edge of the domed iron cap that has rusted thru, but overall still very solid metal and displays beautifully. The jar is in good shiny condition with no significant problems. There is one small chip on the ground rim, and the base of the jar has a tiny manufacturing flaw, consisting of two hair-like annealing fissures done in the making of the jar, shown. The jar was found in an attic and retains good as-found luster to the glass. A wonderful early jar of which only 3 or 4 examples are known to exist.
