The handle is of the period but is not original to the jar. It has some staining and a couple breaks but serves the purpose. The Mandarin Red color comes from gold in the glass. When glass with gold is reheated the colors vary with temperature change. This piece was mold blown and the varying temperatures of the glass give it a marbling effect.This was the desired outcome and it shows most on the lid and the base. The cost of gold no longer allows for the making of this color of glass and hasn't for nearly 50 years. Either the Big or the Little Cookies are both extremely rare in Mandarin Red.
