Glass Ball Jars


These glass Blue Ball Jars, circa 1936, make great vases or simply for display just to get this great turquoise color in your world, because this is just the most beautiful glass color there could be! Ball blue jars received their blue and blue-green coloring from the sand around Lake Michigan. Ball’s famous blue color was a product of minerals found in the sand and the amount of oxygen used in the furnaces to melt the sand into glass. The original blue jars were only produced between the late 1890s and 1937. (Two jars have a lid.)
