Wish List: chic preserving jars

I’m a big fan of the French Le Parfait preserving jars for storing dry food, but I think my collection of clear jars will soon be joined by a colourful interloper from America:

This blue Ball ‘Perfect Mason’ jar is a faithful reproduction of the Balls brothers’ original blue preserving jar. Relaunched this year to celebrate the jar’s centenary (they were first produced in 1913) the jar hasn’t been available in this chic blue shade since 1937. Readers in the US can shop the jars directly from Ball, the manufacturer; sadly they don’t ship outside of the US so in Europe, try Labour & Wait.
