Availability: Made in 1877 by the Hemingray Glass Co of Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky. In that year Adam Dickey of Middletown, Ohio obtained a patent for black glass to be used in preserving fruit under the premise of a method to prevent discoloration of the produce. See the Patent. The introduction of opaque black glass for canning jars was very short-lived and not successful in the market, as evidenced by the very few examples of these jars now in existence. A stunning jar to add to your colored Mason line-up.
