CAN ANYONE HELP WITH A QUART JAR EMBOSSED WITH ATLAS/ MASONS PATENT/ 1858.I WOULD THINK THAT IT DATES FROM AROUND 1920 AND THE ONLY BASE MARK APPEARS TO BE A CIRCLE.
THANKYOU

Hi Trog, Aqua or clear $8, blue $15, green, yellow, ice blue,sky blue, olive green $20 to $40 depending on how light, dark or strong the color is. The character of the jar also effects the price, swirls, mixed, colors, mistakes, bubbles and trash in the glass, bugs, leaves, twigs and such. I saw a jar go for $200 because it had a small caterpillar in the glass. Don't know how they survive the heat but they do. I have a few with trash in them. The Collector's Guide to Old Fruit Jars [Red Book] by Douglas M. Leybourne is the best guide I've seen.
