Vintage Kerr jelly jars feature an angel above a crown image.
There are squat jars with the angel on the inside.
And slender jars with the angel embossed on the outside bottom.
We cannot find a really good explanation of why this image was used,
but we like it very much anyway.
Maybe we like it even more because it is inexplicable.
Don't we all need angels watching over us in our domestic endeavors?
It is the most likely reason for our high success rate of jelly and jam setting despite our disregard for following directions to a T.
If only light bulbs came with a guardian to protect us every time we stand on a wobbly chair to change them.
