These covered jars were first introduced by Indiana Glass as a Candy Jar.  It was not until years later that the medium and large canisters were added to the Harvest line to make a three canister set.  
The candy jar measures 7 inches tall and 4 1/2 inches across the uncovered top.  This was a BIG seller for Indiana Glass.  You could buy this jar just about anywhere for 99 cents, even Safeway offered them.  Many thousands of these were sold and they are still very plentiful today.  They are frequently offered on the internet, antiques stores and flea markets  as humidors, biscuits jars or the small canister.  Very seldom are they referred to by their original name, Candy Jars.  

These were made in all three of the carnival colors, blue, lime green and gold carnival glass.

Price Guide Values
Blue - $15 to $35
Gold - $15 to $30
Green - $20 to $40

Please Note - It is difficult to tell the  difference sizes of the canisters in pictures.  If unsure, ask the seller to measure the canister WITHOUT the lid.  The small canister jar is 5 inches tall, the medium is just under 6 inches tall and the large is 6 3/4 inches tall WITHOUT the lid.
