The Atlas Glass Company of Washington, Pennsylvania is what im looking for but may not be separate from -The Hazel-Atlas company came into being in 1902 when the Atlas Glass Company of Washington, Pennsylvania, and the Hazel Glass Company of Wheeling merged to become one company. was in business from 1902 to 1964 until they were purchased by the Brockway Glass Company. Their headquarters was in Wheeling, WV. Their specialty was the manufacture of fruit jars. Most Atlas jars are relatively common, however, there are a few exceptions. The Hazel-Atlas company made such familiar jars as the Atlas E-Z Seal, the Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason (the neck didn't crack as easily as the traditional shoulder seal mason jar) and the Atlas H over A Mason. In the 40s and 50s Hazel-Atlas was one of the "big three" jar makers along with Ball of Muncie, IN and Kerr of Sand Springs, OK. Owens-Illinois of Toledo also made many jars during this period of time. WARNING- Some jars embossed "Atlas Mason" are new product jars produced by a company using the old Atlas name. REF :2>TEOC-CD145 = "Hazel Atlas Glass Company", Clarksville, WVA., that made depression glass but no unique "Atlas". Second thought - 'atlas' could be advertizing reference to the strength of Greek god "Atlas". See also QC= "BALL","CFJC","MASN".
