By the mid 1850's, wax sealing was a tried and proved method of sealing perishable foods. This method employs a channel around the opening in which a string is placed, and the opening covered by a tin lid. Afterwards, hot wax  or parrafin is poured into the channel to close the seal. In order to break the seal, the string is pulled.

The Potter and Bodine patent was actually for the process in the manufacture of the jars, and not for the concept of wax sealing. Wax seal jars appeared in redware and stoneware, and the first version of the Spratt patent can came in the wax seal arrangement.

The barrel motif of this jar was a theme that was common in the marketplace of the 1860's. This was manifested not only in this jar, but also mustard jars and inkwells. On the collector's market, these jars are quite desirable, and depending on condition, can bring up to $350, making this reproduction the only practical option.
