FRENCH JAR

One of the things that Bob found on his yard sale travels this week was this jar for $2.  It is quite tall and has various embossed writings on it including "VMS - REIMS" which I assume that it came from the Reims area in France.  On the front and top it says, "Bocal" & "Le Parfait -Super".  I think that means 'The great, perfect jar'.
 The top also says, "Ouverture instantanee" meaning 'instant opening'.
 On the rim it says, "Niveau de remplissage", which I think that means 'filling level'.  In addition, in English, it says, "Made in France" --  making me think that it was made for the tourist market.  The size and shape indicates that it could have held pasta.  It isn't old, but interesting nevertheless.  What do you think? And, have I translated correctly?
On my next post, I'll show you what I'm going to do with it.

High school Spanish for 3 years and 1 in college does not allow me to know a bit of French! What ever you think makes sense to me!

We are celebrating my FIL's 90th birthday at a family picnic tomorrow, instead of his actual birthday (July 4th), so I'll be going to my brother's for the first time in over 35 years! Enjoy your holiday!♥♫
