Notes Ball® Heritage Collection Spring Green Mason Jars

New for 2014, these limited-edition Heritage Collection green mason jars celebrate the 100th anniversary of the "Perfection" jar. These vintage mason jars are made in the USA and are available in two sizes in a period-inspired spring green color. With custom-embossed logos on the front and back and vintage-inspired packaging, these green jars maintain all the standards of quality and reliability of modern-day canning jars. Perfect for all home-canning needs, décor, crafting, or as collector's items. Available as regular mouth pints and wide mouth quarts.

The dates listed on the Heritage Collection jars celebrate three years of specially released jars by the Ball brothers during the years 1913-1915. We are celebrating each of those released 100 years later 2013-2015. The 2013 Blue Jars are celebrating the "Perfect Mason" originally released in 1913 and the 2014 Green Jars are the "Perfection" jars celebrating the 1914 "Perfection" jar.
