Another puzzle piece thats gonna drive me insane if I dont find out more....IMG_20190811_045632_354.jpg

Can anyone help me figure out what kind of bottle or jar this is? I assume canning jar of some type, but "YZEE" and "MPRO" doesnt ring bells. I'm assuming the "mpro" is part of "improved".

Ok thanks. Will look up that name. Something interesting to me is that this jar was used for canning. Its got alot of bubbles in the glass. Wouldnt that explode during the canning process?

Canning jars very frequently had bubbles in the glass. I'm not sure how much pressure a canning jar is supposed to take, but it doesn't seem like they exploded often even though the glass was fairly thin a lot of the time.

Seems odd that they didnt explode or crack. Goes against everything we understand in the kitchen. Thanks for the help
