Adams' Tutti-Frutti gum jar

American Chicle Co., Brooklyn, NY, c. early 1900s (I think), 10 1/2". Neat gum jar with a nice paper label. Among gum jars this is one of the most common, but it was still hard for me to find a nice one. I'd kept my eye open for several years before I found this at the Indy Ad Show. 'Course, I'd seen a few on ebay during that time but the price was always too high---or at least was more than I'd wanted to pay. The paper label on the bottom of this jar says that American Chicle Co. is the successor to Adams & Sons, which was news to me.
