Mason 1858 One (1) Gallon Canning Fruit Jar Apple Green:
Unique Extra Large ONEGallon Size Recycled Quality Glass Mason Fruit Canning Jar
Embossed MASON'SPATENT NOV.30th 1858
This is a replicaMason's Patent Nov. 30th 1858 ONE GALLON Jar. It is not a direct reproduction, but ismodeled after genuine antique Mason's "Hero Cross" Patent Jars from the 1800s. Itis made from recycled glass which givesit apleasant light apple green color, and has a crudity rarely found in modern glass! The lid is recycled heavy gauge tin,and is finished in durable lead free lacquer.The jar isnew, with no cracks or damage of any kind.Most of these jarshave smooth lips, sometimes finely ground,and have no base markings except for the bottle machine mark.(These jars are largely made by hand, and the process usedis crude by modern standards-these gallon jars often have tiny chips on the lip. This is normal for these jars)
I have shown it next to a quart jar to give you an idea of the size. The jar is just over 13 inches high, 6 inches wide at the base, and the opening is about 5 inches.
The jars from the new production run are currently shipping, and this may be the last run of these jars due to increased manufacturingcosts and difficulty in production.
The pictures are typical,and there will be slight variations in glass bubbles and texture.
This jar is certainly an affordable, attractive and welcome addition to any Fruit Jar collection, and is a terrific storage cannister that fits right in with any Country, Rustic, or Early American decor.It will be a perfect gift for you or your antique loving mom!
These replica jars are available in Gallon, Half Gallon, Quart, Pint, and "Midget" Pint sizes, all made from beautiful RECYCLED glass! They make a wonderful set!
