Ice Green Cracker Jar - 9 inch
 Handle to handle Stands 8 inch to top of knob

Covered Cracker Jar:  This covered jar is found  with and without stippling and has two handles. The stippled version is known in marigold, but it is rarely seen. Perhaps other colors exist, but have not been reported.
Marigold and amethyst cracker jars without stippling are fairly available. Other colors, such as cobalt blue, white, smoke, ice green and the ultra-rare aqua opalescent are quite rare. Green and ice blue remain unreported to date.

Feb. 1911 Butler Bros. Wholesale Catalog Ad:  Clearly indicates the shape and advertised size of the fruit bowls. However, as we can see from the examples shown, results of shaping each example as it was removed from the mould, creates a variance in size.

GRAPE & CABLE Fruit Bowls -  The examples shown in this segment are considered to be large, shallow, rest on three scrolled feet, and are about 4?4 ½?high. These are easier to locate than the deeper 6?7?type, sometimes referred to as 搊range bowl?
Only two or three examples in ice blue have been reported. Other colors: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, and ice green.

Tri-Cornered Whimsey from the large  FRUIT BOWL

Over the years, we have viewed/examined a few examples having the applied handle. By virtue of the 搒tuck handle? lack of iridescense, and the fact that the base glass color does not match that of the bowl, we believe them to be the result of 揳fter-market?application sometime following factory production of the bowls. You must be the best judge of that!
For as long as we have collected carnival glass, there have been 搒uspicious?examples (from time to time), exhibiting alterations created following factory production. There seem always to be those who seek to 揻ool and fraud?in order to make a few extra 揵ucks?from the unwary collector!
The whimsey tri-corner type bowl is not readily found. It was fashioned from the larger fruit bowl-6?7?deep. The glass was very likely too hot when removed from the mould, so the shaper created this unusual shape , avoiding the scrap pile. They are certainly conversation pieces!

There is no one like the God of Jeshurum, who rides the heavens to help you, and in His excellency on the clouds.
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, 揇estroy!?/FONT>
Then Israel shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone, in a land of grain and new wine; His heavens shall also drop dew.
Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty!
Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down their high places.
------Deuteronomy 33:26-29
揥ho rides the heavens to help you?(Deuteronomy 33:26).
This is most likely a reference to God's presence revealed in the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. In both manifestations, God was Israel's guide and shelter during their journey. The living God stands watch and rides the heavens to help us, in our spiritual walk.
