Offering a vintage Ball jar with wire bail

We are offering a vintage Ball canning jar in our online Etsy store. 

The Ball Sure Seal line of canning jars were staples in turn of the century kitchens. The Ball script tells of manufacture from 1910 to 1923. Standing 7 inches plus tall, the extra wide mouth is over 3 inches wide. The glass cover is held in place with the wire “lightning bail”, named for the speed in which it may be closed! The base sports the number 8.

These vintage Ball jars have so many uses beyond canning. They look great in any room. This jar is easy to open for filling with anything from buttons to wine corks.

The listing for this piece of Americana (complete with many more photos) can be found here.  Sher and I invite you to take a look at our Roadtirement Vintage Etsy Store. You might find something you can’t live without!
