Red Wing Beater Jar

Question:
I have inherited a Red Wing Beater Jar from my mother. It is about 6 inches tall. My question is, It has a pale blue lid with it which looks like it is made out of the same material. The fit is rather loose and I am wondering if it is original to the piece. The lid is not raised or domed but rather flat. Thank you Diane
