The International China Arc Heartland  Hinged Glass Canister was manufactured by Arcopal and bears the Arc name and logo impressed into the top lid. On the body of the canister there is also impressed into the glass "Niveau De Remplissage", which translated from French, indicates the appropriate "Fill Level" for the 0.75L canister.

Arc International was established in 1825 in the village of Arques in northern France by Alexander des Lyons de Noircarm, who began production by manufacturing glass storage containers known as "dame-jeanne" (demijohns in English), which were popular at that time. In subsequent years, the company diversified into consumer cooking and dining glassware. By the 1960s, the company had mastered the process of manufacturing stemware and other finer glassware products. One of Arc's signature products is the thick-walled ten-sided "working glasses" that were a workhorse in French kitchens after their introduction in 1978.

From the 1897 onwards, the company was dominated by the Durand family, who eventually purchased the firm entirely in 1926. To this day, the family continues to be the sole proprietors. The firm adopted a number of practices that positioned it to become one of Europe's leading mass production glassmakers. Examples include the usage of tank furnaces (1933), the construction of modern glass presses (1947), the use of automatic blowing machines (1950), the usage of industrial tempering (1963) and the automation of lead crystal production Luminarc(1968).

Luminarc is the oldest brand currently sold by Arc, launched in 1948. Other Brands under the Arc group include its own Luminarc (launched in 1948), Arcoroc (launched in 1963 for use in restaurant industry), Cristal d'Arques (launched in Europe in 1968), Longchamps (launched in the US in 1968), Salviati (acquired in Italy in 1999), Mikasa (acquired from US in 2000), Pyrex (under license in Europe from Corning since 2005) and the fine crystal brand J. G. Durand.

The  Heartland Canister stands 5-1/2 inches in height, measures 3-5/8 inches in diameter at the top and naturally it has a 2 Liter Capacity.
