If there was ever a Vintage item that is timeless it has to be the Mason Jar.
Our Quart & Half Pint size Ball Jars in the Aqua Blue with Zinc Lids are collectable and highly functional.
How do you tell an Authentic Jar from reproduction?
The first sign is the colour.
Reproduced ones are a bright candy blue not soft Aqua!
Authentic Mason Jars were made using a sand from Lake Michigan which gave them the beautiful Blue hue.
The next sign is the lids.
All Authentic Mason Lids are made of Zinc with the manufacturers name embossed on the top.
The inserts are always made of porcelain unlike the reproduction ones that are left empty or cardboard pieces fitted.
Original Jars show imperfections within the glass i.e bubbles and bumps!
These jars are still used widely today not only for food preserving but for weddings, floristry and decoration.
