This is the mason jar that inspired all our soap dispensers! I just love the look of this antique jar and the idea that it can be useful again. The wide opening makes it so easy to add liquid soap, lotion, or hand sanitizer, and you'll always know how much is left!

The jar was made by Ball Brothers of Muncie, Indiana before 1937 for home canning.

What is the biggest problem with soap dispenser lids? Corrosion! They wear out way too fast. We've been fighting this battle a long time, and we hate it as much as you do. We've always been honest and had our SOAP ALERT (kitchen degreasers like Dawn, Palmolive and Dove can really tear up your lid). But now we are thrilled to report that our lids resist corrosion better than ever.

We started making soap dispensers when our Ball jar collection began to grow. I have always used pumps at my kitchen sink and thought it would be great if Ball would make dispensers with a vintage lid to give it an authentic look. But they don't, so my husband came up with a way to do it and we love them!


Ball made blue jars (or "green" as they called them) until 1937. The color came from minerals found in Lake Michigan sand and the amount of oxygen used in the manufacturing process.

No one has been able to reproduce Ball's blue color after 1937--not even Ball themselves! They revived the blue jars (sometimes called "green") in 1975-76 for the US Bicentennial, but even that blue is not quite the same.

This jar is in vintage condition with minor scratches and scuffs. For decades, it has been used for canning and other household chores.
