Dick is a retired Curator of Business and Industrial History at Minnetrista.He taught me everything I know about Ball jars, but not everything he knows. Inspect the glass in good light to find scratches, cracks or fractures. Vivid or unusual colors, bright wire on the bails, oddly wrapped wire and a greasy feel to the glass are all indicators of recently made or reproduction jars.Be wary if the details don’t fit together to form an authentic picture.
Take note of any dates or other information on the jars.The Hazel-Atlas company was in business from 1902 to 1964.During 1940s and '50s, the company was one of the largest producers of canning jars along with competitors Ball and Kerr. Only a few types of Atlas jars are collectible: the Atlas E-Z Seal, Atlas H over A Mason, and the Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason. Beware of very strong colors which may indicate a reproduction or irradiated glass. The Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason has heavier glass below the jar neck to prevent it from cracking easily.Rivera holds a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Florida Southern College. I’m the current contact for information about historical Ball jars on the Ball Corporation web site.
Rejoice if you find one of those; Buffalo jars are pretty rare.
