Though cork was effective, most of the early closure efforts by inventers and bottlers were directed at finding a cork substitute Graci The following three closures gravitating, Codd, Hutchinson utilized the internal pressure of the product to assist in the sealing of the bottle.
This closure was apparently first put into use in or Riley It consists of an elongated glass plug with a flared knob on one end. A rubber gasket was placed on the upper end of the knob which when placed in the bottle sealed the contents by pressing against the inside surface of the bottle at the juncture of the neck and shoulder.
The bottle was ". The illustration to the left shows the stopper separately outside and inside a typical bottle. The photo to the right shows the base of a Matthew's patent bottle with the 2.
The pictured stopper is embossed in tiny lettering with what appears to be the following: Click Matthew's stoppers for a picture of several of the glass stoppers minus the rubber sealing ring which would have been on the narrow flared "knob" end top end as shown in the picture.
These bottles were opened by pushing down on the head of the stopper to release the pressure which allowed the stopper to sink to the bottom of the bottle and the contents to be accessed. The stoppers were removable from the bottle for cleaning and reuse and to replace the gaskets as necessary.
The base of most but not likely all bottles that used this closure are embossed as follows: Click g ravitating stopper bottle base to see a close up picture of the embossing found on the base of these bottles picture is of bottle to the right.
The embossing is also shown behind the stopper in the image below. Because of this base embossing many people assume that Matthews was the patentee. However, Albert Albertson was the patentee and Matthews " Soda bottles that took this closure type are early enough that the ones noted by the author have a true applied blob finish. All of the marked gravitating stopper bottles that have been noted by the author of this site were shaped like the bottle to the left F.
However, bottles with this shape have been found with a Hutchinson stopper in place covered later. So unless embossed with the "Gravitating Stopper It is also likely that some of these type bottles originally started out with gravitating stoppers, but since soda water bottles were typically reused for many years, they may have later been used with the new Hutchinson spring stopper.
This style of bottle was actually still being listed in the Illinois Glass Company catalog as late as with the notation that their mold number "88" was specially designed to accept the "Mathews sic Patent Stopper" IGCo. Mold number "88" is listed on the page in the left side of the image.
These bottles, with and without the "Gravitating Stopper By the mids, the Hutchinson stopper in bottles with a somewhat more abrupt shoulder began to dominate the soda bottle market and the gravitating stopper appears to have faded gradually from common use. However, as noted above, gravitating stopper bottles were still being offered as late as , though bottles that conclusively date that late date have not been noted.
Codd's Ball Stopper The Codd ball stopper was by far the most successful of an assortment of internal ball type stoppers for soda bottles patented during the second half of the 19th century. It was first patented in England in with the patents for the most commonly seen form issued in and ; it was patented first in in the United States Munsey ; Goodacre Most of its success was, however, in England or its Commonwealth nations like Canada, India, and Australia.
Reportedly, part of the reason for its lack of success in the U. For an image of a much less successful competitor that also utilized a ball for the closure mechanism, click on Roorbach bottle which shows a Hutchinson type bottle that used the Roorbach ball stopper. The bottles were produced by a method that required the use of an applied finish until well into the 20th century which is long after virtually all other bottle types were being mouth-blown with tooled finishes.
According to one author the mouth-blown bottles were produced as follows: After being mold blown the bottles were sheared at the neck and allowed to cool. Then a glass marble, made from glass of a hardness twice that of the bottle was dropped into it. The bottle was then re-heated and the neck welded on finish applied , so containing the marble Goodacre Eventually fully automatic bottle machines were adapted to produce Codd bottles example pictured to the right.
This type of internal ball closure was self-sealing via a rubber gasket mounted inside the bore of the bottle against which the marble was pushed firmly by the carbonated contents. The contents were accessed by pushing down on the marble to release the pressure after which the marble dropped to the lower part of the neck. Click Codd opener for a picture of a tool used to push down the marble and open Codd bottles. The illustration to the left shows the upper portion of a Codd bottle with the marble in the sealing position inside the bore.
The photo to the right shows a late 20th century, machine-made Codd bottle from India with the gasket in place in the middle of the finish and the marble in the unsealed "resting" position low down in the neck.
During the midth century most of the English machinery to produce Codd bottles was shipped to India where the bottle may still be produced Goodacre Some resemblance I guess? Hutchinson closures followed by the crown closure both covered below were far and away the most popular sealing methods for soda and mineral water in the U. One researcher has, however, tallied 25 or so different Codd bottles that are identifiable as used by American companies spanning the country Graci It is not known how many American soda companies used unembossed Codd bottles with proprietary labels attached, though it likely a very low percentage compared to the Hutchinson and crown closure bottles.
The general date range for the mainland American use of the Codd closure is probably similar to the date range in Hawaii, though it is known that some Codd bottles were used into the early s by some companies in the West. For example, one Western embossed Codd bottle Biggam Bros. Helens, Lancashire, England which was merged out of existence in Fowler ; Whitten A good cut-off date for Codd closures in the U. Worldwide, Codd bottles were used for an immense range of time from invention in the early s to the late 20th century, as indicated by the pictured bottle above which is machine-made and has as base sticker noting it was Made in India.
It was purchased new from an import store around ! Hutchinson and fairly quickly made cork closured soda bottles obsolete.
This was visually portrayed by a humorous s advertisement from the Hutchinson company which portrayed the Hutchinson as a boxer knocking out multiple contenders, all of which were soda bottles with "other" closures.
Hutchinson's "boxing gloves" were the flat end of the stoppers Graci The Hutchinson spring stopper consisted of a rubber gasket that was held between two metal plates which were both attached to a wire spring loop. The closure is shown in the cut-away illustration to the left which is in the sealed position illustration courtesy of the Glass Container Manufacturers Institute.
The contents were accessed by pushing down on the top of the wire spring loop which released the pressure and opened the closure. When pushed down slightly to open, the stopper stayed in place - i. The design of this closure gave rise to a new type of soda bottle - the Hutchinson soda bottle - with its very short neck and sharply defined shoulder which ranged from moderately sloped illustration to the left and photo to the right to almost perpendicular to the neck pictures below.
Though used primarily for soda water, Hutchinson type bottles were on occasion used for beer, primarily east of the Mississippi, as evidenced by the occasional embossed bottle that has a brewing company name on it. There were numerous competing types of internal spring stoppers similar to the Hutchinson - most notable being the "spring swivel stopper" and the "Parkhurst" both of which were almost identical to the Hutchinson - though the "Hutchinson's Patent Spring Stopper" made by W.
The certain Hutchinson closured stopper missing bottle pictured to the right is embossed with W. Note the similarity of this bottle to the gravitating stopper bottle pictured earlier; either of the two closures could have been used in bottles of this shape as noted in the "Gravitating Stopper" discussion above.
Click on the following links for more images of this bottle: The Hutchinson stoppers' main drawback was that it was internal with eventual cleanliness issues raised involved the re-use and cleaning of the bottles. However, the primary "problem" with this closure was the invention and gaining popularity early s of the crown cap - especially as the mechanized era of bottle production ramped up allowing for a more consistent and reliable product.
The crown cap and bottle machines are what really sealed the doom of the Hutchinson; the crown cap is covered later. The tooled blob finish below right; bottle to the left with the Hutchinson stopper in place is on a Mt. The base of this bottle has an "H" marking which is believed to be the mark of the Holt Glass Works , which was destroyed by the April 18th, San Francisco earthquake Toulouse ; Thomas This soda bottle dates from the apex of popularity for this closure type as the crown cap was rapidly making in-roads into the soda and beer closure market in the first decade of the 20th century.
Many used unmarked bottles to which they applied their own cheap labels, although the proprietary embossed Hutchinson soda bottle was actually unlike most other bottle classes more the rule than the exception Fowler pers. True applied finishes on Hutchinson soda bottles date the bottle from about to Applied finishes on Hutchinson bottles are relatively uncommon.
Tooled finish Hutchinson bottles date from the mid to late s to the effective end of production for this style in the mid s, with most bottles dating between the late s and Some references list as the end date which seems unlikely since the Illinois Glass Co. Two extremely unusual machine-made Hutchinson sodas have been reported to the author [Bill Lockhart pers. One example was made by the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. Both bottles are base date coded and are the latest known Hutchinson bottles.
Click on the following links to see photos of the bottle: As a side note, there is some possible dating information related to the subtly varying conformation of blob finishes on Hutchinson sodas. Although suggested for Hawaiian Hutchinson soda bottles, it would have some application elsewhere since all Hutchinson soda bottles used in Hawaii were imported - mostly from the U.
They note that this style was used on Hutchinson soda bottles dating from or after - a date that fits well with the company related history noted earlier. Lightning-Type Closures The Lightning toggle or swing-type closure was previously discussed in the "General Closure Types" section earlier on this page; click General Closure Types to move back to that section for more information.
Besides fruit jars, this closure was fairly common on soda bottles but received its most widespread use on beer bottles.
An illustration of the closure by itself is to the left illustration courtesy of the Glass Container Manufacturers Institute. The Lightning closure was a secure, long lasting stopper and for that reason did and does enjoy popularity. In general, Lightning-type closures were popular on soda and beer bottles between the late s to at least National Prohibition in After that time use was limited on beverage bottles; the crown cap dominated by then.
People being slow to accept change, Lightning-type closures were used well into the 20th century on some beverage bottles. It is not uncommon to find early 20th century crown cap finish soda and beer bottles with Lightning-type closures on them since it usually would work in lieu of a crown cap.
However, by the mid s, the crown cap finish on machine-made bottles dominated all beverage bottles. Lightning-type closures continue to be used in modern times by some beer and soda companies primarily overseas and bottles with this closure are still sold for use by home brewers to bottle beer, cream soda, and root beer. Lighting-type closures used on beverage bottles since the midth century were primarily anchored using dimples in the side of the finish instead of the neck encircling wire circle just below the finish see the discussion in the "General Closure Types" section above.
Baltimore Loop or Bottle Seal This functional and fairly popular closure was patented by William Painter, a Baltimore machine shop foreman, in September of Click Painters Baltimore Loop patent , to view this original patent U.
Painter called it the "Baltimore loop seal" though it was usually referred to simply as the "bottle seal" Riley ; Munsey The closure itself is a plug or disk made of rubber or other flexible material with the bottom surface convex shaped. The disk fit tightly into a groove "reverse taper" circling the inside of the bottle's bore.
Internal pressure from the carbonation pressed against the convex surface resulting in lateral pressure which held the disk firmly in the groove. An imbedded wire shank in the top of the disk was used, in conjunction with a hook or pointed instrument, to pull the seal from the bore of the bottle and access the contents. Thus, the alternative name of "loop seal" for this closure.
Painter produced and provided the tools to glassmakers that formed the reverse taper inside the bottle finishes Riley ; Lief Patent Office , Click Painters Loop Seal Patent April 7, , , to view the latter patent for improvements to the closure. The illustration to the left shows a cut-away view of the bottle seal finish and the actual closure cap illustration courtesy of the Glass Container Manufacturers Institute.
The photo to the right shows a beer bottle finish with the typical "look" of a bottle seal groove within a tooled blob finish. The base of the bottle has the makers mark " S. Based on manufacturing based diagnostic features, this bottle could date anywhere within that range. The bottle seal was considered the first "single use" bottle closure, since it could not be reused - though corks could always be thrown away also Lief It was adopted by the Moxie beverages firm - the first mass marketed soft drink - and used on their bottles for some years in the late 19th century Munsey The bottle seal was used primarily on blob finish, mouth-blown beer bottles and blob finish soda bottles to a very limited degree made from as early as - although much more commonly in the late s to early s - to at least the early s IGCo.
The majority of both types of bottles have tooled finishes; applied finishes using this closure are very uncommon empirical observations.
Finishes that accepted a bottle seal closure show up on beer and soda bottles from all parts of the continental U. Even during its peak period of use, the Lightning-type closures were used much more than the bottle seal on beer bottles and the Hutchinson stopper on soda bottles Lincoln ; Munsey By the early 20th century another of Painter's patent closures would totally eclipse all of the competitor's in the closures world - the crown cap.
For a more complete story on the history and use of the "Baltimore Loop Seal" I'm happy to present the following article which is ONLY available here as a "e-published" work! William Painter's Baltimore Loop Seal. This article is about this late 19th century but used into the s closure type used for beer and some soda bottling and invented by William Painter, who went on to much bigger fame as the originator of the crown cap closure and finish discussed next.
It is available at this link: It was patented by William Painter in , who also patented the Baltimore loop seal discussed above and the holder of hundreds of patents, not all dealing with bottling.
It was called the crown cap because, according to Painter it " gives a crowning and beautiful effect to the bottle " Lief This closure consists of a simple metal cap with a corrugated skirt or flange and a compressible liner originally cork [earliest days to midth century] or sometimes linoleum soaked disks  and now plastic inside the top.
The typical finish is as shown below which is a specific conformation "bead" upper part on top of a variably tapered lower part or collar, though sometimes there is no collar - just the neck of the bottle. The cap is placed on the crown finish and crimped into locking position with some type of crown capping tool or machine Lief To access the contents of the bottle the still familiar, small, hand bottle opener is used. The crown cap was not an immediate success since it required new bottles, new bottling machinery, and a level of uniformity of bottle manufacture that was just beginning to be possible in the early 20th century.
It was also possibly perceived as being "too good to be true" - the corollary to the human inclination to resist change. The illustration to the right is from a patent that shows one of the tools specifically designed to form and tool a mouth-blown crown cap finish. The dotted outline of a crown finish and upper bottle neck is visible within the "jaws" of the calipers type finishing tool which is otherwise quite typical of the tools used to finish bottles from at least the s until the end of the mouth-blown bottle era.
With the advent of better hand tooling methods in the late s to early s followed by the inherent uniformity of automatic bottles machines in common use by the early to mid s, the crown finish quickly gained supremacy Lief For example, El Paso, TX. Berge noted that the crown finish was universal for carbonated beverages by with complete transition by It appears that no crown finish bottles date prior to the patent date.
In fact, vi rtually all crown finish soda and beer bottles date to after ca. IGCo catalog with just one soda bottle offering.
In the IGCo. Mouth-blown, true applied crown finish closure bottles are very uncommon and then usually of foreign manufacture empirical observations. Mouth-blown, tooled crown finish bottles date from to about , when machine-made manufacture of soda and beer bottles was almost complete in the U.
In Canada, it appears that at least mouth-blown soda bottles with tooled crown finishes were being made until at least the late s Axelson The crown finish pictured to the right is a tooled example that dates from around The following link is to a portion of The Ultimate Beer Cap Page , a website devoted to the crown cap closure: The "PRIOF" closure is actually a finish variation for the crown cap intended to make it easier to remove the cap in that it could be "pried off" with a non-standard opener without breaking the bottle.
One of the last minor changes or variations of the crown closure was the development of the "Priof" method of bottle finish by the Illinois Glass Company. The crown bottle, appearing in the early s, had a projecting ledge below the lip of the crown which assisted the consumer in opening the bottle.
By using the ledge as a point of leverage, one could easily pry off the cap by using a knife, key, coin or any flat piece of metal. One needed only to insert the lever between the ledge and the cap and twist. Although this type of bottle finish was used sporadically through the years, it never became popular enough to dominate the market.
However, its major advertising feature was that it substantially reduced the number of broken and chipped bottles which resulted from the use of various unconventional openers.
The "ledge" is visible in the image just above the "PRIOF" embossing; in fact, the embossing is on the outside face of the ledge. This finish was usually always?
This bottle dates more precisely between and as that was the period in which the "IPG in a triangle" makers mark was used Lockhart et al. Click on the following links to view more images of this bottle: Because of their uncommon use, which translates into the rarity of finding them on historic sites or elsewhere, no additional closures are covered for soda and beer bottles.
For additional information, consult the references noted at the end of the Introduction at the top of this page. A few were used in the U. In modern times, various external screw thread finishes have and continue to be used on both soda mostly plastic now and beer bottles, including the crown cap variation for beer bottles that screws off the bottle for opening. This closure apparently originated in the s Rock Fruit or canning jars as a group have the most plentiful, unique, and interesting array of closures of any group of historic bottles as attested to by the photo to the left photo courtesy of Greg Spurgeon Antiques.
The following is quoted from Dr. Julian Toulouse's exceptional book on the subject - Fruit Jars Toulouse a - and summarizes well the reasons for so much variety: In the list of over eleven hundred names of fruit jars and variations It is the vast variety of sealing methods employed, and the many patents concerning them. There was no one simple seal that functioned without some drawbacks, and even the Mason shoulder-seal jar, which to many is seemingly synonymous with the fruit jar, is now so different from its beginning that only the name remains.
Much of this is due to the limitations of early glass-container manufacture in providing an opening that could be sealed hermetically. It either had to have a ground lip or a pressed lip.
If pressed it could not have a screw-thread or indeed anything except some sort of spring or clamp. If ground, the sealing surface could not be the ground surface since that would leak and contaminate the contents. Many tried to seal on the ground surface, however.
The ways to cope with the ground surface was to straddle with the cap, as in the Mason jar, and seal on the shoulder, or to straddle it with a glass or metal lid, or to form a stopper. Cork was an inferior to largely non-functioning as a closure for canning and processed food products, in the home or commercially.
Jean Pacrette described in The requirements of a glass package are first the air tight sealing which has been first obtained by sealing the jars with corks and tying them with wire so as to prevent their being blown out by the inside pressure while processing. However, during the boiling some air and steam from the inside of the jar forces their way out and while cooling off produces a vacuum, and owing to the porous nature of cork, the air from the outside, not pasteurized, is sucked through the porosity of the cork, gets into the jar causing its contents to be attacked by the germs contained in the said air and soon the decomposition takes place Pacrette as quoted in Bender .
Because of the sealing problems, there were many hundreds of different closures patented and actually put into production during and after s. Due to the rarity of most of these closures, this section will only cover a few of the particularly common closure types since these are the most likely to be encountered.
For more information on the diverse world of canning jar closures, the following references are recommended see references page: Unfortunately all three books are out of print, but may be available at libraries or on-line from various used book sources.
Wax Seal Cap or Lid This closure method was reportedly first used for local home based food processing in Europe by and in the U. This simple round metal cap closure is associated with the wax seal finish which is typically found as an applied or "pressed on" in fruit jar terminology finish and seems to be found primarily and commonly on earlier fruit jars usually dating from the early s until about An exception to this dating is that several different varieties of groove-ring wax seal "Ball Standard " jars were actually some of the first semi-automatic machine made jars, being first produced in to about Toulouse a; Creswick These latter jars exhibit machine-made diagnostic characteristics; see the machine-made bottles portion of the dating key.
The wax seal finish appears, looking down from the top, to be two round - but parallel - ridges with a groove separating them. The rounded outside edge of the finish slopes down and towards the upper neck of the jar. The finish is easier to visualize than describe - click on the pictures to the left and below right.
This design allowed wax, wax-dipped string, or other sealing compound to be placed into the groove. While canning, a properly sized round metal cap usually tin with a turned down edge or "skirt" was then pressed into the warm wax to seal the jar picture to left. Alternatively, the cap was first placed into the finish, then hot wax poured into the groove to seal. The amber jar pictured above is a ca. The jar finish pictured to the right is on a San Francisco Glass Works California produced quart fruit jar dating from to , though the jars may have been produced as late as the early s by the successor to that company Toulouse ; Creswick ; Hinson Wax seal jars were produced in quantity by scores of different glass companies throughout the U.
Though frequently embossed like the pictured examples, these early type canning jars are more commonly encountered with either base makers mark embossing or without embossing Toulouse a; Creswick This closure was used on the ubiquitous John L. Mason's originated Mason's Patent Nov. Mason's original patent did not cover the cap itself since caps were not a new invention; the patent covered the improved screw threads which gradually vanished towards the top of the finish and the shoulder allowing for a tightening seal and the relatively flat shoulder sealing surface Lief ; Creswick There were many hundreds of different variations and types of Mason style fruit jars and scores of subtle variations in the cap itself spanning a time frame from until the midth century, and in modified form, to the present day Creswick The name Mason is still synonymous with canning jars , i.
The Mason's patent jar design, finish, and closure cap solved several problems inherent with food preservation in glass in the midth century. The gradually vanishing threads were molded along with the rest of the jar essentially "embossed" below the finish rim and just above the almost perpendicular, short shoulder ledge. Molding of the threads with the body produced a relatively consistent threaded surface, though the threads were not the sealing mechanism and some jars are so crude that the cap does not go on very well.
The sealing surface for these types of jars was also not the rim of the finish i. The primitive glass making techniques of the time resulted in the finish rim being too rough and unreliable of place to effect a seal Toulouse a. The ledge shows clearly below the screw threads in the picture to the right. During the period of about , the shoulder seal was phased out and replaced by screw thread jars which were designed with a beaded ledge between the threads and the shoulder which became the sealing surface Toulouse a.
Click Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason finish for a close-up picture of the screw thread finish on a jar that has a typical bead sealing surface - the prominent ridge just below the threads. Click Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar to view this entire jar, which dates from the s, with the cap in place Creswick These early caps resulted in the potential for contact between the cap and contents often resulting in a "metallic" taste to the canned product.
This problem was largely solved with Lewis Boyd's patents for a glass liner which were manufactured for insertion into the zinc cap. The following links show the Boyd's patents: March 30th, patent ; May 11, patent ; October 25, patent re-issue. The liner was often - even in the s - called a "porcelain" liner even though virtually all were made of milk glass.
The Boyd's milk glass liner is shown in the picture to the left which is viewed looking down inside the cap. This indicates the lengthy period these type lids were produced, reportedly until World War II when the shortage of zinc forced the complete conversion to the tin plate bands still in use today Brantley It should be noted that the earliest Boyd's liners were reportedly made of colorless glass Roller Other screw cap variations eliminated the top portion of the cap substituting the glass plate or liner which was affixed to the remaining, circular screw-band Lief This is easier to view than explain - click Flaccus Bros.
Fruit Jar to see an example of this type of screw-band and milk glass lid combination closure on a mouth-blown jar that dates from the s or early s. Modern fruit jars still use a metal screw-band which holds down a thin metal - not glass - lid.
The difference with more modern midth century on canning jars is that the sealing surface is now the rim top surface of the finish not the shoulder or a bead rim. This screw-thread and cap closure combination was not perfect, but had one major advantage over most other canning jars - the jars were some of the easiest and cheap to produce and sell. To quote Toulouse, " A glass company could get into the business of making Mason jars with a mold and a grinding wheel, and did not have to concern itself with supplying zinc caps; it could undersell any fruit jar on the market because of its simplicity; its lids were reusable and replacements were readily available.
Many different glass companies also produced the zinc and glass liner caps giving a variety of embossing possible on these liners Lief The milk glass liners, and often the lids themselves, are very commonly found on historic sites anywhere that home canning took place which was essentially everywhere, including cities were urban dwellers would can produce when in season and cheap. Since these lids were made for at least 60 or 70 years, there are no specific dating opportunities associated with them unless they have some type of makers markings like the example pictured above.
The lids were also used for many years and not discarded until worn out, rusted, or the liner broken, further diminishing any utility for dating a site because of deposition lag problems.
All Lightning-type closures are similar in the way the toggle mechanism works to clamp and seal the bottle or jar. If the lid were attached to the bail there would be no way to move it totally away from the bore of the jar to access the contents Toulouse a. Instead, the jar lid is held in position by centering the bail in a groove or between two raised dots in the center of the lid.
The Lightning-type closure gave rise to the very popular jar of the same name - the Lightning fruit jar pictured to the left which dates This and numerous other jars used this closure type in various forms between about and up until the midth century.
The popularity of this type jar stemmed from a combination of ease of use and the fact that it solved one of the problems of the Mason's cap in that only inert glass could contact the contents of the jar removing the possibility of the metallic taste which was the bane of Mason jars Toulouse a.
As a side note, some historians believe that the use of the term "white lightning" for moonshine stems from the use of lighting closured jars to by bootleggers to bottle their product Hinson In the 20th century, Lightning-type closures for canning jars had the sealing surface on a narrow flared bead just below the rim instead of the broad chunky band like on the Lightning jar.
The newer Lightning-type closures also dispensed with the tie wire that encircled the neck and molded dimples into opposite sides of the neck to hold the ends of the lever wire Creswick The jar pictured to the right is a pint sized Ball Ideal that has both these characteristics - a narrow flared bead sealing surface just below the glass lid and dimples to hold the ends of the lever wires i.
This style of closure was patented in and made into the s Toulouse a. The pictured jar is likely from the earlier end of that manufacturing date range, i. Click on the picture to the left to see a larger version which illustrates the parts of this closure type. To quote Toulouse a , "The use of the thumbscrew as a device to tighten the seal on the fruit jar was a matter of a quick flurry, and then virtual disappearance, except for the cumbersome Van Vliet , and the revival as a museum jar by Whitall-Tatum.
The use of glass instead of metal would have been a natural evolution from the wax sealers metal cap to avoid imparting a metallic taste to the contents of the jar. The picture below shows the finish on the Millville jar without the lid and clamp in place. A comparison of this finish with the wax seal finish pictured above shows the close similarity. If just the broken off finish of a Millville jar were to be found on an historic site, it would be impossible to say whether the original closure was a wax sealed tin lid or a thumbscrew and glass lid.
It was once thought that the actual patent date was November 4, by T. However, patent records do indeed show that John M. Whitall was granted a patent on June 18th, incorrectly noted as "Jan.
The lid or stopper closure on the John Moore jars fit on a ledge inside the bore of the bottle and thus the Moore jar finishes do not have the parallel ridges on or within the finish like the Millville Atmospheric and typical wax sealer jars.
The Van Vliet jars had a glass cap that was shallowly cup shaped and fit over and around the outside of the finish. Other thumbscrew and stopper types like the Moore's jars date from the s or early s and the unusual Van Vliet's from the s Creswell After that time, this style of closure was rarely used since the external "Mason's" screw-thread and Lightning type closures dominated, along with a few others - like the cam lever and lid jars discussed next.
All of these general types worked via the action of a lever handle to apply pressure in some fashion to hold the lid tightly against the sealing surface; see Toulouse a The Collectors' Manual to Fruit Jars book for more information. The first lever type patents for canning jar closures were issued in the early s with various others issued into the early 20th century.
One of the most common of the lever type jars were the cam lever and lid closured Globe jars; most other lever based closure jars are uncommon. An exception were the Safety Valve jars which utilized a very different looking than the Globe cam lever type closure patented in and experienced some longevity from patenting mouth-blown into the machine-made era until about Toulouse a; Creswick The Globe jar closure utilized a glass lid with a hemispherical seat that matched up to a rounded cam on the end of the short lever which was attached to a metal moveable bail.
Swinging the bail over the center of lid, a user pressed down on the lever handle which applied pressure to the lid sealing it against a rubber gasket that sat on the ledge below the rim see image to the right although no gasket is in place.

This section covers closures that were used on a wide array of bottle types, i.e., closures which are generally not identified with only one or two types or classes of bottles. Inherently these closure types saw wide use for many types of bottles - implying higher than usual functionality - and because of that also experienced a long time span of use. In Memoriam.
