Like you, perhaps, I inherited several dusty cardboard cartons of old-time canning jars. Some were equipped with a wire bale that clamped down on a heavy glass lid. Others had a screw-on lid of soft zinc, with glass lenses rattling in the center. Forgotten names such as Crowne, Atlas and Mason were molded into the glass.
What is the value of old canning jar with Mom's Mason Jar on it?
Note: many reproductions of these jars have been made from the s all the way up to the present time , which are discussed later in this article. WARNING : It has come to my attention that some oddly colored Nov 30th type jars shades of red and yellow, probably other colors exist have recently surfaced for sale on auction sites. They have the base mold number: H They were likely recent imports from Asia!!! If anyone has further info on this type of jar, or knows of other mold numbers that ID fakes, please contact me!
