It came without its screw top - which may well have been metal. A broad band of Matthey Crinkles around the midriff - above which are two gold coloured bands, and with a similar band around the base. The wording underneath reads.........'HYGENE WARE - MADE IN ENGLAND' - and in the centre is.........REGD. NO. 873612 - which is beyond the cut-off date of my 'Blue Book', so unable to check and see to whom this was registered, although would imagine it's somewhere around the mid 1950's.
Can't see anything indexed in David's 'Chance Expressions' book under 'Hygene Ware', so may well not be anything to do with Chance.
The shape makes me think of a pickle jar possibly, although I appreciate that traditionally pickles always had glass tops - height is about 4" (100mm).
So - all thoughts welcome please, and thanks for looking.
