Ball Quart Jar Rare Blue Vintage Mason with Zinc Lid and Gasket
My friend's mother-in-law passed away and she gave me 2 mason jars since she knows I do crafts. These are too big for my crafts although I could make them into a lamp I suppose???? So I did some research and decided to sell these instead.
I did some research and I believe this was made between 1910-1923 Here's the info I found:
Look for the dropped A. Between 1910 and 1923, the A in the word Ball had an ascender at the beginning that looked like it should connect with the B. Because the B and the A don't connect, this called the dropped A.
At this time, Ball also adopted the 2-L style logo, where the decorative loop on the end of the name was dropped.
Please look carefully at all pictures and ask questions.
Make sure to view pictures carefully, so there is no misunderstanding.
Please notice the gasket is cracked. I did not want to ruin things so I didn't even try to open the bottle.
The number on the bottom is 7. According to my research (Ignore the mold number on the jar. Many Ball mason jars have a number printed on the bottom of the jar, but this is a mold number that does not indicate the year of production. Rather, the mold number tells you where the jar was positioned on the glass-making machine that was used to produce it. Mold numbers are generally a number between zero and 15, and they'll sometimes have a letter included as well.)
Please examine photos as part of the description.
People wanting me to contact them elsewhere or telling me they have contacted me 3 or more times, tend to be spammers and will be ignored.
Once my items sell, I promptly remove the item, so, no need to ask if it is available. If it's listed, it's available.
