Well you learn something new everyday if you listen long enough. I never knew there was such a thing as a gravelight container. I will be more watchful in the future. Thanks for sharing the link. I picture really is worth a thousand words.  :-[

Have a blessed day

Just an aside, I don't believe it's Consolidated 'Catalonian', if that was the suggestion Madam Medusa was making.

Also look at the lower portion shape of the pickle jars compared to this which is not practical for food use.

American one on ebay, another term seems to be Sanctuary light... or was that to get round eBay rules of no grave stuff. Why not one wonders... ::)

Maybe so Frank, but that shape didn't stop Westmoreland from making them although this is the pickle jar with the top reworked for a vase made in the mid to late 20's. The shape of yours reminded me of theirs.

I'll be incredibly stubborn and perhaps a bit arrogant, and insist Frank's piece is a grave light. We (the Polish nation) use them every time we go to the cemetery and say a prayer for those who are no longer with us.  On All Souls day, the cemeteries burn brightly with thousands of such lights.  See here for some photographs.

Evidently I was not specific enough in my comment as I was not disputing Frank's use attibution as a grave marker light. I was simply showing that this waisted design was also used (in the U.S.) as a food container & its at times its difficult to assign a singular usage according to design. You just never know what the usage a design might have in different parts of the world.

Just wanted to say thanks to Frank...I'd never even heard of a grave light!  Interesting!

Great pictures Anik, now could you please tour the Polish graveyards in daylight to see if you can find this design... perhaps we can ask the relatives where they bought it  >:D  :wsh:
