Found this a few days ago and I've no clue how it was used. Its not like the bail top lids, but I'm guessing used a rubber seal.
Anyone know?

It is a lid for a Mason jar that used a metal screw band to hold it in place. There would have been a rubber gasket for a seal. It may have been for a product jar or home canning. It was made by the Jeanette Glass Co, of Jeanette Pa. some time after 1915 according to my book.

The Jeannette Mason jars were made in the 1940s, and only in quart size. These glass inserts & metal screw bands were used primarily during WWII to conserve metals.

Now if I can only dig an intact jar to match it. Thanks!
