Quick history about the Mason’s 1858 jars. These jars were made by nearly every glass bottle manufacturer in America, through the Patent dates of 1858 to 1880s, companies mass produced untold tens of millions (or more) of these jars. But there are some rare and hard to find ones that collectors keep watch for.

This jar was an early production jar, it is a two piece jar the treaded mouth was attached to the lower body when the glass was still molten, the rim is known as a ground edge rim which also helps date the jar. The jar is known as a drop shoulder jar. The Consolidated Fruit Jar Company started making these jars for Mason’s around 1870 +/- the pint-sized jar is not nearly as common as the quart jars. The lid is made by Boyd’s most likely not the original, but it is an old one. This jar has wonderful air bubble and ripple lines throughout the jar, the raised lettering is very clear.
