You are looking at a VERY STRANGE (to me) - half gallon sized, *flat* shoulder seal fruit jar with a thick ground mouth (with some heavy flake chipping, covered by the lid)... in a nice RICH SCA COLOR :-)! It is the jar on the left in the comparison picture, next to a normal looking shoulder seal Atlas Mason jar. It is jar #1789 in the Red Book #9, BUT IS NOT listed in this SCA color - and is a SELDOMLY SEEN jar with this particular embossing (no 'S)... PLUS this one has an *odd* squarish shape with a unusually flat shoulder!
The jar is VERY STRONGLY embossed with, "MASON" (with NO *'S*) which is arched over "PATENT" over "NOV. 30TH" (the TH is underlined) over "1858"... please see the pictures! The base of the jar shows some normal signs of wear (that is to be expected on a old Mason's jar such as this) - and is embossed with this VERY STRANGE looking number/symbol?? with a period after it... again please see the pictures! This jar looks GREAT in a sunny window (and should get darker with more exposure to the suns rays) - and would make a STUNNING addition to anyones... read more
