I have a lidded slop jar, made by Homer Laughlin, which I have been told is worthless. It's old, solid white, china (or porcelain) and in good condition -- no chips or cracks in sight. Is what I've been told really true? The guy said they cannot be given away.
If so, what does one do with a slop jar when one has indoor plumbing?? Too pretty to hit the trash and my memory is too good for me to use it as a covered casserole dish!
