The familiar term Mason Jar came after its inventor, Mr. Mason, who, at age 26, was a tinsmith in New York City.He perfected a machine that could cut threads into lids, which ushered in the ability of manufacturing a jar with a reusable, screw-on, lid.The Lightning jars became popular because the glass lids prevented food contact with metal, the metal clamps were cheap to produce and the lids themselves were much easier to seal and remove.The name Lightning suggested that the jars were quick and easy to use.
The number has nothing to do with when the jar was made.They are quart sized and have new and what I would say are sloppy looking wires.They have smooth lips, are dark amber in color and have Putnam 227 on the base. There could be legitimate Lightning jars with Putnam 227 on base, although I've never actually asked anyone if they have one in their collections.Lightning jars represent an important advancement in the history of home canning and are still a part of American culture.Some historians suggest that the term "white lightning" may have been inspired not only from the effect of ingesting homemade corn whiskey but by the name of the jars the whiskey was frequently stored in.
These familiar jars with their glass lids and wire bales are still found in novelty stores today.
