(1) Did the Hazel-Atlas jar company ever make jars that actually looked like the Atlas "mason" jars that consumers see today when they purchase spaghetti sauce, etc? As pictured below.
When researching old Atlas jars, all the Mason jars that seem to be made by them for use as actual re-usable Mason jars for home canning actually seem to have looked quite different.
(2) Does anyone know how Classico (or more accurately whoever makes the jars for Classico) came to acquire the rights to the Atlas name to stamp it on jars?
These were made by Hazel Atlas for Classico and are modern.
Thanks Coreya! Do you have a link or a source for that info?
Thanks. Yeah you can see lateral striations.
Matt Knapp's book lists it at $10 - $15. (No other information) Looks a little better than that to me but Matt is good.
Oh!! That is a thought!! When I put it out for my sale at least I can give a little information on it! Thanks for commenting!! :)
Thanks, Jim! I was really on the fence on that one!!
Sunrunner, in America, tooled tops continued into the 1920s, though rarely past the beginning of Prohibition. You rarely see tooled crown-tops before 1900 in the Northern US, and not much before 1905...
FYI, a correction, the top is TOOLED or Hand Finished not APPLIED.
tooled top mineral water bottles . late 1890s to 1909 or 10 . .75 cents a piece.
