North American Glass Web Site

If you are looking for Fruit Jars and related information I suggest you connect with Greg Spurgeon who directs North American Glass. I signed up and receive email notes for all his auctions which are primary centered around Fruit Jars. There are other areas represented so you need to keep an eye on his auction news.

It seems like Greg is the man for selling Fruit Jars. I really enjoy watching the variety of jars that continually show up on his web site.

One Response to North American Glass – Fruit Jar Auction Source

  1. Warren Friedrich says:

    For those canning jar collectors in the West who covet the jars from the western glassworks such as the Pacific Glassworks Victory jar or the San Francisco Glass Works jar; there is another jar that is probably not very well known among the jar collectors about its history of origin. The GRAINGER jar was conceived and manufactured by Carlton Newman. Bits of history on this jar can be found in the recently published book EARLY GLASSWORKS OF CALIFORNIA.
