Can you tell me anything about this jar? I've looked and looked for something like it. It's a Ball Perfect Mason with a zinc lid. Ball is embossed on top of lid and inside is a white material. I think it is a pint size as it stands 5.5” high. I think it has SURGRIP sides which would date it to 1935. Aqua color. There is a 1 and an A embossed on the bottom.
What is different is that 3.5” from the bottom there is a (probably) zinc ring around it. The zinc ring is also on the inside. The rest of the jar with the lid sits on top of this ring. The original jar is most likely broken as the whole unit is in 3 pieces but for display purposes it's intact. I have to downsize my possessions and don't want to dump anything that might be significant.
