Blue glass Ball mason jars with a fitted zinc lid and new pump. ‘Ball’ script and ‘Perfect Mason’ embossed on the front.
Ball Mason jars are iconic American kitchen storage jars.
The blue glass came as a bi-product, in production, the sand from Lake Michigan turned blue in the glass making process. The last of these were produced in 1937, they are still produced in clear glass. Production started in the mid 1800’s. Before the age of freezers the housewife preserved all her fruit, pickles and vegetables in these jars. Therefore all kitchens had lots of these. The most popular sizes were the Half Gallon, the Quart and the Pint. There were 2 other sizes, the rare Half pint and the 3 Pint (known as the moonshiners jar, as that is what they were generally used for). These jars have been repurposed for use today.
