Tip Top Nipples Whitall Tatum Company Lidded Countertop Jar with Nipple Shaped Finial on Lid 2 Piece Glass

Early, heavy, 2-ps. glass countertop store jar for Whitall Tatum Co.’s Tip Top brand nipples, w/ nice enameled label on front and figural nipple shaped finial on lid.

A very early, circa 1900 Nip Jar for early rubber nipples that went on a baby's bottle. There is an ad for from 1913 but these were made prior to the that date. Whitall Tatum Company  (1806–1938) was one of the first glass factories in the United States.
"Whitall Tatum produced bottles, jars, and vials throughout much of the 19th century. Antique bottle collectors prize the Whitall Tatum druggist, perfume, chemical, reagent bottles, and other types of bottles. The company developed several innovations in formulas used to make the glass, and in the manufacturing methods for bottles."

Size: 9" tall x 5" diam. The lid is 3" tall including the nipple finial at the top. 
Condition: The glass is almost perfect, light rubbing to the base but no visible chips or cracks on the jar or the lid. The label, as the photos show, has very light label rubbing. The edge of the label is worn and some marks on the right side of the label, but the main logo and image is very fine. Please see the image for more details.
