An Historic American Canning Tradition

In 2013 Ball marked their 100th anniversary of the development of a series of jars, designed by the Ball brothers, each intended to be better than the one before. Here's a little timeline of the development of these historic jars...

  • 1913 saw the launch of the first true “Perfect Mason” jar
  • The "Perfect Mason" jar was followed in 1914 by the “Perfection”
  • Then came the “Improved” in 1915. You'll see the word "Improved" written across the 2015 purple heritage jars.

About this Year's Purple Jars

These limited edition Purple Heritage Collection Wide Mouth Quart & Pint Jars are a celebration of American home canning heritage.
