Thank you for viewing our Store,

We have for sale an Antique Mason’s 1858 Fruit Jar
Wonderful find this 1890s Mason’s Fruit Jar made by Port Glass Works of Muncie Indiana. The Mason’s Jars were made by several contracting companies in the late 1800s till into the mid-1900s. This jar is marked on the backside PORT for the Port Glass Works company (Business years 1891-1903).
Port Glass Works was contracted in the 1890s to manufacture these jars and were ones of the very few allowed to add their name to the jars. The jar is marked with the number 7 on the bottom this was the manufacturing line number.
This type of jar was made in three pieces the top and bottom where attached to the sides of the jar, one oddity to this jar is that the bottom was attached upside down, the number 7 is inverted and well as the center of the bottom protrudes out of the bottom giving the jar an unlevel bottom.
The jar has bubbles and lines in the glass and the rim of the jar has a ground edge, very typical for this time period.
