Stoneware Grocers Jars

Stoneware Grocers Jars


Stoneware was the Victorian and Edwardian storage jar of choice, while flagons were used for beer and spirits. In the kitchen fruit & vegetables would be salted and laid down for winter in large jars.  They would be covered with cloth or paper & tied with sturdy string.

These days the jars are ideal for storage, preserving, holding kitchen utensils or terrific for decorative purposes. 

The jars & flagons on sale in Little Hadham Stores are all original grocer's stoneware and each is unique.  I have sourced natural cork stoppers so you can use these to store dried goods from our Zero Waste shelves.
