The Mystery of the Fake Flower Jar

I won't say that 'I collect' country themed timers... my mom might, over time, get me a few dozen and I just don't have the space. This little family of five fits just fine on top of the microwave... along with a Texas toothpick holder and a fake flower in a jar in back. The fake flower is not special, but it is in an old (?) clear jar, of which I know nothing about other than what it says on it and where I found it (found it on our property among dozens of other oddities and ends over the years).
On one side it says:
SUGAR-STARCH
CORN SYRUP
U.S. CERTIFIED
COLORS-3/4oz.
T.H.STOUGH, CO
JEANNETTE, PA

(and the above is all written sideways, that is, you have to turn the jar on its side to read).
On the other side it says:
LYNNE
DOLL
NURSER

(this is written whereas one can read it with the jar standing upright).
On the bottom, it says:
PAT. 136888
The bottom also has an 'M' with a circle around it and the number '4' above the 'M'.

Wouldn't it be fabulous to find that this jar is worth ?$? Ha, I know... not likely.

  1. Julie, you have a Lynn Doll Nurser: Baby bottle for a doll.
    They came filled with candy (ingredients listed on the side of the bottle) and with a nipple on top. There are several listed on E-bay.

I say, somewhat facetiously, that I have a small little world. What can I say... blogging is my entertainment and hearing from you makes my 'little world' a tad bigger.
