The gorgeous aqua blue-green Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar is in very good condition. The distressed gray zinc porcelain screw-on lid has "GENUINE BOYD CAP FOR MASON JARS" on the white underside of the top. While there are no dates on this incredibly beautiful Atlas jar, the smooth surface on the top of the rim indicates that this particular jar was made prior to 1915. According to references, if the top of the rim is smooth in the seam areas then the jar would have been hand-finished. Beginning circa 1915, the entire process was done by a machine. The bottom of this jar has what appears to be a number 6 in the center which most likley points to a particular mold number. Also, it is important to note the unique double hyphen smaller size upper-case lettering. The embossed "- ATLAS - STRONG SHOULDER MASON" on the side of this jar is noticeably different from the dropped "A" ATLAS jars. While it is hard to be for certain when it comes to rarity of one style over the other, the double hyphen "- ATLAS -" is definitely unique. In addition, this jar has some beautiful imperfections such as air bubbles, waves, and tiny lines on the inside of the glass. There are four very noticeable bubbles on the back and one on the inside of the embossed "D" in SHOULDER. While bubbles are very appealing to the eye, a bubble in an embossed letter is super attractive and quite rare.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.
There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous aqua blue-green Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar. The distressed gray zinc porcelain lid has a crack in the side that reaches up to the line just above it. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the jar - mainly in the form of rub marks on the glass. Also, while the glass has been cleaned with mild soap and water, there are still some cloudy areas - mainly around the outer bottom edge. While it might be possible to combine a harsher cleaner with more course scrubbing, the appearance of the jar is so beautiful that it might not be worth risking additional distress on the glass.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous aqua blue-green Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar are many. The china cabinet or display curio would be enhanced by the addition of this unique double hyphen "- ATLAS -" jar. Also, the entryway or kitchen would welcome this beautiful aqua blue-green Atlas jar for its attractive bubbles and wavy glass. In addition, the growing glass collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this quart size "- ATLAS - STRONG SHOULDER MASON".
The collector will appreciate this beautiful Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar for its very good condition, aqua blue-green color, attractive imperfections, and gorgeous overall appearance.
The gorgeous aqua blue-green Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar weighs 18.1 oz.
The quart size glass jar measures 7 1/8" tall to the top of the lid or 6 13/16" tall to the top of the rim x 2 5/8" wide across the rim from outside to outside x 3.75" wide across the bottom from outside to outside.
The opening in the rim measures approximately 2 3/8" across from inside to inside.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
