Ball, PERFECT MASON, 10,
Size and dimensions of this item:
7'' tall, 3 3/4'' base, 2 5/8'' top
I found it in a barn that I was tearing down, and I offered the farmer $5.00. I know the reason the word perfect is offset is because they reused the mason molds and added the word perfect to them. I believe that this means that it was one of the first to come off of the line.
