I am looking for some help in identifying this jar. Age? Appears hand blown with applied top. Not sure anything else can help ID maker to list for sale. Thanks for any help you can provide this newbie to fruit jars!

Welcome to the forum! I'm not sure that this actually is a fruit jar, it reminds me of mid to late-19th century food jars, like the Mellin's Infant's Food ones. This type of jar wasn't meant to be resealed in a way that would be effective for home canning. I guess it's not impossible that someone could have used a jar like this for canning but by the time it was made there would have been much more effective jars available.

Thanks for your input ~ much appreciated. I should have mentioned it is 8" tall x 3" bottom diameter.

Nice jar, 130-150 years old most likely.
