Ball Mason jars are iconic American kitchen storage jars. 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 generally used).
