Red Book lists it at $2-4 in aqua and $6-8 in light green. I cant tell by the picture what color it is for sure.

hi whiskeyman, i would think that would be uncommon. does it had crude lettering? i read someone was looking to collect ones with crude letters. nice buy, rhona

RHONA...the letters aren't crude, but the S is smaller than the rest of MASON.
It has bubbles, thick seams. and waves in the glass inside...looks like the glass is flowing down...and you can feel it...also has an old machine valve mark on the base and no number/letter. I'll get a pic tomorrow and post it. Thanks for the interest...
