FOWLER’S FANS CAN YOU HELP WITH ANSWERS/INFORMATION? Is Fowler’s enthusiasm an addiction one cannot quench?
We get more and more questions for Mark Benbow about Fowler’s can anyone else help?
I have a Vacola jam jar sealing machine and some bottles labelled Fowlers Vacola Jam Jar 1lb.
I have only 1 lid labelled Vacola Jam Jar Cover, Gripard, 2 and 7/8 inch. Are the lids still available? I have checked the Fowlers Vacola website and online but can’t find any information or mention of the jam jars and the sealing machine. I gather the jam jars themselves haven’t been made since the 1950’s. Does anyone have any information about the jam jars and the sealer? Are they valuable or rare?
I have a large no 320 jar I hear they are quite rare and I couldn’t find anything on the Internet about them.
Does anyone know anything about this jar?
From Amber J
I’ve come across some old Fowlers merchandise from my great grandmother.
Most of the jars seem to be quite common although I can’t find much about the age/value of the 73s and 74s.
I’ve got a beautiful old stovestop Vacola (S.46646) that still has its box with accessories and it’s book that says it’s a 22nd edition.
Does the books edition help indicate it’s age?

Any help would be appreciated. Also have intact paper packets of ‘Kleer View’ transparent preserve covers with labels – have photos for dating. Had a very old recipe book that was falling apart but photographed all including the ads & there were dozens. Am willing to send photos to any who are interested. Thanks again Viv
Hi there, I have six #12 jars just wondering if they are rare? Thanks Jeni.
