The Harvest Carnival large canisters was introduced by the Indiana Glass Company in the mid to late 1970's. It measures 9 inches tall (to the top of the lid) and 6 1/4 inches across the uncovered top.  They are cookie jar size and scarce.

Interest and sales in the Harvest carnival was declining.  The small canister (candy jar) had been a HUGE success sales wise.  In an effort to "revive" sales, the Indiana Glass Company introduced the medium and large canisters.  Their thinking was that everyone who had bought a small canister would buy the medium and large ones to complete the set.  This did not happen and the medium and large canisters had a short production run.  They are tough to find.

The large canister was made in all three of the carnival colors, blue, gold and lime green.
