The Value of an Antique Ball Jar
One of the most iconic pieces of farmhouse styled decor has to be vintage blue glass mason jars, and particularly, the ones made by the Ball Corporation. Their distinct color of teal blue glass is also very trendy these days, making these treasures more valuable than ever. I started collecting Ball mason jars in , well before they were as hotly pursued as they are today.

People have been rummaging in their attics and cupboards hoping to find these items not only to join the fad. Very rare mason jars have recently fetched up to a thousand dollars, while antique ones can be priced for up to a couple of hundreds online. The interesting part here is, the older they are, the rarer they get, the more expensive they can be.
