    H.L. Pettit canning jar

    I was looking on line and saw this H.L.Pettit canning jar. It has an unusual closer. Now I have to get back to the old barn permission and find it.

    Hoping to find an expert to tell me if this is a brand or the jar maker?
    Anyway, it looks similar to a Lightning jar. I went to the garage and looked through a box of Lighting jars. Some lightnings are embossed on the side and some are not, but they all are embossed on the bottom PUTNAM.

    Then I found this one.

    Pettit was the jar maker, the jar turned that color due to UV exposure by the sun, we call it sun colored amethyst in the hobby. Some "nefarious" sellers "nuke" them in industrial food sterilizers or UV light boxes to get them to turn purple, which is often easily distinguished from the naturally turned bottles like yours because they turn a dark purple. Nuking is the common term for those in the hobby and true collectors frown upon it. Good thing is "nuked bottles" can be reversed in a kiln and returned to their natural color, manganese used to make the glass clear will turn a bottle purple, selenium will turn it a straw to dark amber color...
