Learn More About Ball Canning Jars

The roots of the Ball Glass Manufacturing Company go back to 1880, when Frank and Edmund Ball of Buffalo, New York, purchased the Wooden Jacket Can Company. Originally the brothers manufactured metal cans wrapped in wood, but when John Mason's 1858 patent for a fruit-canning jar expired, the brothers prepared to move into glass.

By 1884, the first Ball jars as we think of them today were produced and in 1888 furnaces were fired at a new plant in Muncie, Indiana. Between 1888 and 1961, the company made more than 41 million canning jars which is just one reason why the words "Ball" and "Mason" are virtually synonymous today. In spite of the quantity produced over the years, authentic Ball jars have become quite collectable - especially the older, more rare blue glass jars.
