A promotional item from the 1876 Centennial Exposition, this tiny jar holds barely more than 1 ounce. Reportedly these little jars were packed with one single oyster. Embossed on the front: "RESERVOIR JAR 1876". The flared neck is made with two small internal lugs to accept the tiny, hollow-blown glass stopper with juice hole, just like the full-sized counterpart. On the base of the jar is embossed: "CHAS YOCKEL GLASS MOULD MAKER PHILA". On top of the glass stopper is an embossed star and "ELLA HALLERS PATENT". The jar is in fine shape with no damage. On the very bottom of the glass stopper itself, is a small fissure that is very hard to spot, probably done in the making. An appealing early jar, and most likely the smallest sample jar that was ever produced. Measures about 2-1/2 inches tall to the top of the mouth.
