Pickle jars are not just for holding pickles. Like any other jar, they can hold any other food, but there is a decorative quality to these types of jars that make them more than just practical. They have what could be called an “old-timey” appeal. This is especially true of the models that feature a wooden handle. The handle has that old-fashioned look, and it makes carrying the jar much easier when it is full.
These would look nice in a traditional-type kitchen decor, I think:
