Rare Josee Johnson Fruit Jar Does Exist

Rare Josee Johnson Fruit Jar Does Exist

Great story of a "Lost Jar": the 'Josee Johnson Jar'. Patented in 1865, an example was never seen by fruit jar collectors, so it was thought there wasn't one. Until one finally surfaced in the year 2000.

Read John Pastor's article in the October 2012 issue of Antique Bottle & Glass Collector Magazine.

You can read part of it on the magazine's facebook page.

But wait... there's more...

Bet you'd like to own the Josee Johnson Jar, wouldn't you? well, this rare jar is going to be in American Glass Gallery's November 2012 auction. And, yes, AGG has a facebook page, too.
