There were some reproduction amber Lightning jars from Taiwan produced in the 1980s.They are quart sized and have new and what I would say are sloppy looking wires.These humble glass pieces were designed for putting up fruits and vegetables in the days before refrigeration.I make no claims or guarantees that the information contained in this document is the definitive truth.

Once you've seen a few repros it's pretty easy to spot one on a table.There is a rumor that jars with the number 13 were more valuable because superstitious people were afraid to can in them, broke them or threw them away.However, I have never found any concrete evidence to back up this claim.The name Lightning suggested that the jars were quick and easy to use.Variations of the glass lid and wire-bale scheme of the Lightning jar were produced for home canning into the 1960s.

Some historians suggest that the term "white lightning" may have been inspired not only from the effect of ingesting homemade corn whiskey but by the name of the jars the whiskey was frequently stored in.
