I have always had a thing for mason jars so when we found a slew at the property we have been picking, I was beyond elated.
We brought home no less than 75 jars!
Many were styles I had never seen before.
Here are a few of my favorites out of the clear glass we found.
Brockway Sure Grip Mason
It appears that these were only made between 1933-1934
A Drey Ever Seal with a lightning style seal
Drey jars were produced between 1917 to 1925,
then again later after Ball took over the Drey molds.
This jar appears to be from the first production time.
A Foster Sealfast lighting style jar
These were made between 1908 and 1925
This is the newest jar.
These Mason "Star" jars were made in the 1970's.
I love the star - I call it my Cowboy Jar.
And this mini half-pint. It has an interesting lid.
Not sure what these were used for.
One source said this size was often used for samples.
But the shaker style top has me perplexed. Any thoughts?
We also found oodles of blue jars - hopefully I can get some good photos of them soon.
