    well I was given maybe 300 canning jars and several had midland and all I can find on them is quarts but I have a lot of pints too---I know mason ,ball,atlas Kerr but never midland till today so I’m asking who made them I'm at a loss

    I bought a basket full of old canning jars. They were in different sizes. I thought it would be fun to use the old jars because they had the coloring and were so different, I thought it would be great to put pickles in the larger ones. Then I realized that the glass felt different, plus I read @ditch witch's post about a jar breaking. I opted not to use the real old ones for canning.

    $3-15 on ebay. Maybe best to sell them off and buy shiney new ones. Jar breakage is no fun.
