    This jar was found in an hour out building being torn down and reclaimed. I have many mason jars but none like this one . No numbers or anything on bottom of jar. Any info about the age would be greatly appreciated!

      The Ball brand of Mason jars were manufactured in several colors, but the most common color was the distinctive "Ball blue," which the Ball Corporation used in its jars from about 1910 to 1930. Mason jars with this particular color of glass may be attributed to Ball, since "virtually no other bottle or jar was made in that color." More rarely, jars will turn up in amber, and occasionally in darker shades of green. Rarer still are cobalt blue, black, and milk-glass jars. Some unscrupulous dealers will irradiate jars to bring out colors not original to the jar.

      The Hero Fruit Jar Co. used this embossing in the late 1800s. However, this jar is a smooth lip, and the cross is a little "off". Combine that with the lack of wear on the base and the color is a little bit too bright a green, and I'm pretty sure this is a modern reproduction.
