Known as Swanky Swig glasses, they began life as condiment jars for companies Kraft, Sanitarium, ETA (peanut butter), Cottee’s, Barnes Honey, Grieg’s Honey, Farmer’s Union & Gardner’s and one would have contained Vegemite, Marmite, Peanut Butter, Mayonnaise, sweet spread like Lemon Butter, Conserves, Savoury Relish and pastes for sandwiches, honey, cocktail onions or nuts.
