Who Is Mason Anyway? Mason jars, canning jars or as some people call them Ball jars were invented by John Mason, a tinsmith, in 1858. Did he have a clue that his invention was going to be such a hit with brides over 150 years later? Probably not, because they were initially invented to improve the process of preserving and canning food, back in the day when growing your own food was a necessity and not just a hobby. The two most popular types of Mason jars these days are Kerr and Ball brand, both of them owned by Jarden Manufacturing. The good people at Jarden must be laughing all the way to the bank these days with brides using at a minimum around a dozen and at a maximum 100’s if they provide them as drinking glasses or favors for their guests.
