A black glass quart Mason (olive-black) that is totally opaque except under the brightest light source held very close. Embossed on the front "MASONS PATENT NOV 30TH 1858" and on the reverse with a large "HGCo" monogram for the Hemingray Glass Company. A rare survivor from the run of black glass jars that were made by Hemingray at their Covington, KY site in 1877. Beautiful condition with no damage or stains. No dings, no bruises, no starred potstones, no flashes, no chips, only the usual edge flaking of the ground rim. Base has a large embossed "8". The finest example of this highly-appealing early jar, which is rarely seen for sale.
