Glass Battery Jar

Attached are photos of a glass battery jar with contents in tact. Came from my father's antique telephone collection. Can anyone offer me any information on value or history?

Thank you.



  • Some collectors really value the "guts" of the jars...shipping the guts is difficult....MUST be packaged separately to travel safely!

    These were actual electricity producing "wet cells" which were filled with acid. The concept is the same as the typical auto battery of today.

  • Thank you for the information Chris.
