Interesting New York Times Magazine Article on Mason Jars

Click here to read the New York Times Magazine "Who Made This" Article on the history of Mason or canning jars.

I recently found some really neat WWII era canning jars that have very unusual clip tops and are embossed with a Victory logo on the glass lid. They were made by the Crown Cork and Seal Co. Clip or clamp top canning jars are very common in Europe, but so rarely seen here. Bail top and threaded or screw top closures are the norm.
