Matte Black Tumbler Jar

Product Notice: We've rebranded our Matte Tumbler Jar line as Astra Tumbler Jars. This is a name change only and the line is physically unaltered.

Our stylish Black Astra Tumbler Jars feature a matte exterior and a warm gold interior ideal for a luxury candle line.

"Astra" comes from the Ancient Greek word for stars glimmering in the night sky, a perfect fit for this tumbler's electroplated gold interior that reflects a lit candle's soft glow. These statement making tumblers are also available in green, white, cornflower, and cranberry.

Looking for a lid?
Try our metal flat lids in black, silver, bronze, rose gold, or gold. Please note that our gold metal flat lid does not match the warmth of the matte tumbler's gold interior. 

Note: Do not pick up jar by lid.

Candle Maker's Notes:

  • If you typically wick our Straight Sided Tumbler or similar tumblers by sight alone, note that the reflective inside can make eyeballing the center of these tumblers difficult. A wick setter is recommended.
  • These containers have a gentle taper that can make large labels challenging. We suggest using smaller labels for this product.
  • Unlit, the electroplated gold interior reflects the candle's wax.
How much wax will it hold?

I absolutely love these jars. I'm just starting out with my candle business and these are perfect. The only issue I have is the proper wick for it. The wax pools nicely but for some reason I just have candle wax along the side of the jar. I used ECO 8 6" wick and IGI 6006 wax. Any suggestions for the proper wick to use.

I love the jars, but the lids do pop off. Other than that, they're nice!

The lids….

Absolutely love these jars! I have a higher end, candle company, so these vessels, fall in line with the look I am going for. However, the lids are atrocious. They don’t sit right on the jar and dent super easily. I have been scouring the Internet to find a wooden lid that would fit, with no luck. If you could create a lid, that would complement this beautiful vessel, you would have a lifetime customer and a 10 star review.

I absolutely LOOOOOOOOVE these vessels and my customers love them too! The way the flicker of candlelight dances in the golden reflection, its pure magick! I would give them 5 stars, even 10 stars if the price was a bit lower.

Okay, I may have jumped the gun on my last review so please disregard. Wow!! These tumblers are awesome! A little pricey, but amazing. They have a really nice clean look to them. I paired mine with the copper lids, which looks great! There are two minuscule things that I can overlook which are the lids sometimes don't stay flat down since there's a rubbing fitting in the inside and after the candle burns for a while, the sides still have candle residue on them so it not the cleanest look, which I imagine is hard to get with any vessel. I don't see too much discoloring other than the inside of the lids may turn JUST A TAD. Other than that, love these jars. Took a chance on them but overall they are amazing. I had few concerns to begin with and CS took care of them SAME DAY. Great customer service!

A Little Disappointed

First off, LOVE the look of this jar. By far my favorite that I had ever purchased from CS. Excitedly, as soon as I got home I make a couple of tester candles, as I'm hoping to launch my business at the end of summer. I use 464, use 8% f/o and let my wax cool to about 125/120 degrees before I pour. Maybe an hour or two later, I come back to check on my candle and the rim around the wax has started to "rust"/discolor my wax! Is it because of the gold plating? I literally just picked my order up at the Durham warehouse THIS MORNING and I'm a bit disappointed. Is there anything that can be done? Thanks

Amazing Customer Service

These jars are gorgeous!
I've ordered bulk several times and haven't had any issues with breakage during shipment.
I wanted to write the review mostly to praise the customer service! This company is amazing. They are always available and after an issue with my last order (which was really expensive for my small business) they helped me resolve it and took away massive stress.
Can't recommend shopping with these guys enough!
