16 oz Mason Jar (Alternate) Front

The 16 oz. is the largest in our Mason line and are a great choice for country style container candles. Mason Jars are also popular for a variety of DIY craft projects, canning and preserving, and for home and wedding decorations. The word "MASON" is printed at the top of the jar on all four sides, the measurements shown in the photo are on two adjacent sides and the other two are smooth, perfect for adding your own labels. We also carry a 8 oz, 4 oz, and Mini Mason Jar.

Tops are sold separately.
The 16 oz. Mason Jar works with any of the #70 G Threaded lids; antique gold, black, gold, gold plastisol-lined, silver, pewter, rustic, white, or pewter daisy.

These mason jars are great and I have used them for quite some time. I am in GA and really need these available from the east warehouse! Shipping is way to expensive from the West. Please let me know once available. Totally recommend.

Over All Amazing

Although one of my jars arrived broken and customer service has yet to get back to me after almost a month, the jars were absolutely gorgeous! They are high quality and are just perfect, they made the perfect candle!

Good jars

Good jars, but packaging not so good. If you order large amounts of jars, many are broken. Thankfully CD sent new ones.

Nice Jars!

These are nice jars and my customers love that they are reusable once cleaned.

One came broken, but CS took care of it!

I ordered these along with lot of other supplies so the box they came in was heavy! Because of that, one of the glasses was shattered and two were slightly dented (still usable though). I contacted CS and they responded right away and sent a full replacement of all 12 I had ordered. Love your customer service and I'm excited to try these jars!!

Great Product

I purchased these as an alternative for my customers to the 8oz jelly jars. I love them . Excellent quality and my label fits perfect on the smooth side. Thank you for a great product!

Just purchase these for my candles to try something different from the 16oz Canning Jar, because I've noticed the quality of those has gone downhill. Well, I'm not at all happy with these 16oz Square Masons. They look used, major defects in the glass, far worse green tint and like a cloudy look. I can't believe I was even sold these. The whole case is waste of money. I would not even use these for my Crafts either.

Great size, and shape.

I love mason jars, and these are the perfect size and shape for my candles!
