PRODUCTION & DESIGN
All-glass jars have been around since the 1800s, but in the early days there was no way to tell if the jar was properly sealed until you opened it months later and found the contents rancid, or not. The design of these jars made it much easier to tell, and that much closer to making canning a more fool-proof, less disappointing endeavour.
Designer Johann Weck first released his jars on January 1, 1900. A vegetarian and teetotaler, Weck was adamant about devising a reliable, healthy and natural way of preserving anything from asparagus to blackberries.
