Victor drew a funny-looking object which he put up in this post. He says it is a glass jar. His description, except for the dimensions, fits a jar that I have. I was happy because I got something old to show off. Mine is a smaller jar - height 20cm, base diameter 13cm, mouth diameter 9cm.
I can't remember why we kept this old jar. Most of the old things we had have been thrown away. I used to have quite a lot of old Chinese movie magazines. Unfortunately, they were thrown away too.
