A beautiful quart size (about 7" tall) extremely DEEP PURPLE antique glass canning jar. This is no reproduction, but an original 100 year old fruit jar.

Jar is embossed down front,"-ATLAS- / MASON'S / PATENT".

This is a smooth lip jar (ca. early 1900) with a zinc lid that has milk glass insert, the zinc has tarnished. The lid is embossed "Ball".

Jar is in beautiful clean condition. It has typical wear, flaking, and dings around the top which are covered with the lid.

This jar has been exposed to a high heat/light source to enrich the purple color that would naturally occur if exposed to sun light for a prolonged period of time. With few exceptions, only clear glass from before 1914 will turn sun-colored-amethyst. Not only does this deep purple/amethyst color make it a great looking jar, but it also authenticates it as being truly antique!

An absolutely stunning example, the jar is full of tiny bubbles throughout the glass. The glass itself has lots of character, waves, whittle and grain marks, swirls, it just comes alive when placed in a window. Functional too for storing dried peas, rice, coffee beans, etc.
