Scope and content

The main body of the glass jar is short and cylindrical made of clear glass. The bottom of the object is flat with a numerical symbol raised on the glass. The neck of the jar is a slightly thinner then the body but still cylindrical and has two raised rings near its bottom and top. Attached in the sides of the glass are metal bars on each side which are the latch for the lid. Both of the bars are U shaped and one sits on the side of the neck while the other holds the lid in place. The lid of the object is round with a raised center in the top. There is a red rubber ring that is the suction on the underside of the lid but it is degraded and gotten quite hard securing the lid onto the jar and making them inseparable. On the neck of the jar are the words "Wire Side". On one side of the jar are the words "Quong Yuen Sing & Co., San Francisco U.S.A, Bean Cakes Net 12 Oz." There is also some Chinese lettering on the glass beside this risen glass label.
