Torpedo Jar.......


I brought a new cutting of iris from the old place yesterday.  They were placed in an old jar and transferred into the canning jar.  We have a grey day because of the rain so I placed the flowers in front of the sliding glass door to get good lighting for the shot. The old canning jar was called a torpedo jar because of its shape. It is an old jar from a house that was later torn down after I had collected it. .

It isn't a bad jar to decor flowers! Nice placement for shot

It's a very nice jar, especially with those flowers in it.

Thanks to this post and your explanation about the torpedo jar I was able to identify one at the auction we went to last night. Not only was I able to identify it, but I was also able to come home with one.
So thank you for the post!

These are beautiful iris and a pretty jar. I have not heard the phrase 'torpedo jar' before. Thanks for both the beauty and the information.
