I bought these and I was a little skeptical to see if the amber coating would chip. All of my jars arrived in perfect condition and I have only had one jar the had a small piece of the amber coating come off on the bottom. However, it was due to my mistake so I will definitely be purchasing these again and using them for my candle business!

Product Update: November 2, 2020
Due to COVID-19 impacting production at Libbey, there may be some delays in our ability to restock. We will share information about any delays and estimated restock dates on this product page. Looking for another option? We added an Imported Amber Straight Sided Tumbler Jar that is nearly identical to this Amber Tumbler Jar from Libbey.
Our Amber Straight Sided Tumbler Jars have a translucent amber coating on the outside of the jar, giving the container an amber-hue for an added vintage flair. The translucent amber coating diffuses the candlelight inside the container for a softer glow.
We also carry the straight sided tumbler jar in additional colors and sizes.

After reading the reviews I decided to check my jars. I am very pleased that 9 out of ten had no scratches at all. 2 had scratches that I can work with. 1 jar however has a watermark and the only problem I have with that is it may complicate an application of any label to look professional if the watermark is so uneven. I’ve worked at a glass factory, I understand gauges and light stations. This watermark is not small.

I noticed from recent orders that the quality of some of amber containers that i ordered is bad. Some has not straight bottom, some are not perfect cylinder shapes (not perfect circle around top), and some has thin cracks. Bad thing is i found out after i poured wax to containers. Not sure if CS mixed up containers with bad batches which i never ordered those. I usually inspect whether they are broken or not. Not if there’s any cracks or not smooth edges or not flat bottoms etc. Hope they inspect before they ship!! And when send replacement of broken boxes, please send the same quality containers not bad batches!!
I really wanted to like these amber jars. They are pretty and glow when you light the candle. That glow enhances all the tiny scratches on or in the jar. I was going to use these for my luxury line. This jar is painted and the paint is coming off. I haven't even made it past the testing stage and my testers are scratched. I washed them with my hands and warm water using with Dawn dish soap and air dried. I cleaned the insides with rubbing alcohol and wiped the outside with a dry cotton t-shirt. I only noticed the scratches or paint peeling on edges after I lit the testers. I don't believe these jars will hold up well for the consumer.
Hi! A member of our team will be reaching out to you shortly!
Honestly I wish they would restock the import amber tumblers they brought in when these ran out of stock, because those are actual amber glass and these are sprayed. So when you go to clean and reuse these, you can’t scrub the outside or the color comes off. I wish I could get actual amber glass tumblers! As much as I would prefer to buy USA made, I loved the import ones way more.
Love these tumblers, the amber color has a really beautiful glow while burning. I found CD18 in GB464 to be a torch. I tried CD12 per another reviews suggestion and that produced a full melt pool only after 4 hours of burning, but it performed better by the end of the candle’s life span. I’ve found the most success with CD14, it burns perfectly and has great hot throw. CD16 also worked well, though the flame did dance from time to time and sometimes felt a little too large, but the hot throw is definitely there.
I love these containers, but the cost of shipping that I paid for only two cases is completely outrageous. My entire purchase was split into two shipments, one of them being just two cases of these vessels ($36) yet the cost just to ship them was ($33). I'm not really saving money buying wholesale from candle science if the cost per item is basically doubled from the shipping cost. I plan to look into alternative options here pretty soon from a company that doesn't charge so much to ship. So incredibly ridiculous.

I haven't had any issues with the jars chipping or being cracked upon arrival! I love their colour and so do my customers. I haven't had any complaints about them! MY only complaint is that they are sold out often but understandable since they are so popular!
I found that the CD wick suggestion is good for burning but the hot throw is virtually non existent. I use 7%. I assume yes i could use more fragrance but thats not the point considering I've never had to up my FO load in any of my other jars. Any one have a suggestion as to a better wick for a more pontent HT?
I love the jars, none of them were broken, there were a few scratches in in the coloring but nothing egregious. I will definitely be purchasing in bulk if i can solve my issue with burning.
May seem like a silly question, but I'm a beginner and I was wondering... should I be concerned if there is still a little wax left on the side of the container after a 4 hour burn? Using Cargill C-6 (coconut soy blend), 10% fragrance, and cd-24 wicks. Please advise!
I've ordered over half a dozen jars because I was undecided which ones I'd want to go with, but these won apparently. I just love them! Don't ever discontinue these!
I love these jars, but im seeing a lot of people having issues finding the right wick. If youa re using the Candle Science wick guide that is your problem. They are way off suggesting CD18 for 464 wax in this jar. Now I know FO type and percentage plays a role, but you should only have to go up or down one size if CS’s wick testing was on point before they made this suggestion. I found success with CD10’s and CD12’s, which I later would find put every other candle supply company suggests for this diameter container. Not sure about ECO’s though.
So, these would be perfect however, out of twelve, one was broken (That can happen not upset) and every other jar had whole streaks where there was chipping or scrapes missing of the amber color. Giving one a quick clean got rid of alot of the dust and just revealed more clear glass. I will not be using these for customers. (This was a test order). If they every fix the chipping issue, I'd happily buy again.
I love these glasses my customers loves them but they chip horribly
I think these jars are great. They are a nice size with a good height and diameter. I have not experienced anything wrong with them.
I noticed that my jars are also chipping (so far i think there are two of them like that). You can't see it once you pour the soy wax but i hope CS improve the quality since i like these containers. I found something similar from Candlewic with much cheaper price so we'll see which one is better!
I used these for my candles but noticed brown flakes on my counter. I don't feel comfortable selling these jars to customers with the chipping so I can't use these, otherwise, I really like them from an aesthetic standpoint.
Hi! Thank you for leaving your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your jars are chipping, that is certainly not normal for those containers. We would be happy to help resolve this issue for you. Feel free to reach out to our support team so we can assist further!
I purchased the ECO14 wicks for this container as this is the wick i usually use for this size and shape. I had some tunneling even thought the flame looked good. I purchased the ECO 16 which burns much cleaner and solved this problem. Their customer service is great and suggested the ECO 16 when i called and asked questions. I appreciated the help in making my candles burn the way i like. My customers are use to a clean burning, low waste and this is what i got. thanks guys for your help
I love these jars. Sleek and beautiful. Although some people aren't liking the inconsistency in the paint, I have no problem with a distressed look. (It's not that often though). It gives character. But if you're looking for total perfection, then these may be a little tricky. I love the size but make sure to look at the size before purchase in case its smaller than you hoped for. Also my labels are stuck! Haven't had an issue with them coming off. Same for my wick stickers. Iv'e never used the discontinued version, but spray paint on the interior doesn't sound pure enough for soy candles. I'd imagine chemicals burning off in my candles.
I really like these containers. I’ve been using these in all colors for gifts as I work to perfect my candle making. I also use the discontinued amber tumblers for testing and the 2 Oz status jars for samples. I will say I found out when I first started that some glass jars may have a thin oily film on them that resists the application of labels and causes glue dots not to adhere. This is the same experience I had when I was working for a company that applied vinyl and screen printing to glass containers. Because of this every glass jar I use is sprayed with a degreaser, rinsed with water and dried before I use them. I also put all glass in a 170 degree oven for about 20 minutes and set them out to cool a few minutes before I wick them which is shortly before I pour. This way I’m sure they are dry and the glass isn’t cold when I pour.
Great products and I will certainly be coming back for more.
Our labels peel and lift off the new jars that have the color sprayed on the exterior. The old tumblers with were sprayed on the interior did not have this issue.
That new coat on all three of the painted jars are lovely. Very even on every single jar I got. These made very attractive fall candles (:
