I just started to make more rustic looking candles, and I actually really like these -- read all of the reviews beforehand and still decided to give them a try. All of mine came intact with a uniform coating and no scratches. I did take my fingernail to the bottom of one to test out, and I was able to scratch some of the coating off, but I'd expect to be able to do that. I can see how some people would be turned off by this, but these are great for my purposes. I just hope they don't sell out before I need to reorder more! :)

Product Update: July 25, 2018
This product has been replaced with a new and improved version that is more durable and less prone to scratching. This version will no longer be available once stock is depleted.
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.

Disappointed in these jars & CS. I have been a customer for many years and was excited for the amber jars. The previous glaze had so many issues that we took the loss on. Called about the unusable jars and new version and sadly the rep had no intention of dealing with our losses and just stressed any new purchases would be a lighter color. Tried a dozen of the new version just to get the last few orders out. They seemed to be decent, some unevenness in color but were quickly out of stock. Revamping our 2018 line to include amber glassware from other sources.
I have been using these for almost 2 years and, though others had experienced problems, I was lucky and never did. The new version available (after a lengthy and very poorly timed out of stock episode) is just not as good. They are more yellow in color than amber and fail to exude the "vintage" feel as intended. Truthfully, they just look cheap. Amber jars (of this size and style) are difficult to find, but this new version is just not worth the price for what you get.
I had put a review that was not favorable about the jars because I had encountered some with splotches and was a bit frustrated because I'd poured candles in them, however, I did find that with all of the boxes I had ordered, most all were very beautiful and fine. I had ordered 40 boxes of the tumblers. I tried to change my review but was unable to. Customer service was quick and very helpful. The jars were an exception to the many, so I am putting a good review here since I cannot edit my previous one. I am sorry for the previous review. Thank you Candle Science for offering to replace the few that had paint splotches and for your impeccable, prompt and professional service. I love your oils and products and will, without a doubt continue to purchase your great products!
I was so looking forward to adding these amber glass tumblers to my line of candles. I wanted to create a higher end to my line and felt the amber glass would be the perfect touch and then in the kraft box for that special look. I find it critical to have a consistent look and quality to all my candles whether they are in a travel tin, mason jar and now the amber glass tumbler. Two out of three just won't cut it for me. After the first pour my first candles had just the look I wanted. The second pour looks like a completely different glass. They are much lighter in color then the first which had that dark amber glass I wanted. I grabbed the box to compare the rest of the case and found the inconsistency in color to be throughout. These are not inexpensive and I had planned on making these at the high end of my pricing but cannot do that with this kind of quality. I was willing to order anyway despite several of the negative reviews on the glass but now sad to say I have to take this part of my business elsewhere. This is unfortunate, as I have only used Candle Science for all my needs thus far. These are not what I can use.
I buy all the classic tumblers, cubes, 21 oz and 2 oz status. The amber and black tumblers are breaking for unknown reasons. I literally returned from a market and opened my box of candles and found 2 broken. I also have had several customers return these to me for the same reason. I have sent an email to the support team to see if they have switched manufacturers. But after this last order, if things don't improve, I will have to look elsewhere. I'm just losing too much money replacing the candles
-This is the perfect size jar.
-This is the perfect size jar IN AMBER GLASS. Everything else is either too small or too large.
-It's not real amber glass, it's painted/colored. The bottom is clear which didn't bother me at first. Then I got a pack that were "frosted" because it looked like they weren't painted/colored/stained appropriately.
-I am having a HUGE problem with a whole batch of these having uneven bottoms, which just make it tedious trying to wick these properly. I'm sure it's all good if you're using cotton wicks, but I'm using wood wicks that aren't as easy to bend or shape.
This would be a fantastic tumbler if there weren't so many inconsistencies and quality control issues. It's hard when you're trying to build a consistent product line. As a small candle maker (hence why I'm buying here and not ordering large quantities from a bulk manufacturer) it's not like I'm sitting on a huge pile of cash, so I can't afford for 10%-25% of my supplies to be throwaways. And I don't want to damage my own brand by passing along a defective product to my customer and giving them a bad experience.
(And a lid would be great, too.)
I am in love this jar, just wish it had a lid! So classy looking.
My question is- I am using 464 and eco 10 and it seems to be tunneling. It has been burning for about an hour. Anyone using this line of jars have any advice on the wicks ? I see the classic tumbler some were using the eco 10 with no problems and it's a bigger jar.
The jar is not fully colored, the bottom is clear which makes it look cheap. it's also very thin, the thinnest I have ever seen. Do not try to find any lids on the market for this jar. I tried so many lids but nothing would fit. for those who says that they found lids. Show us the links or tell us the exact size.
I bought this jars in Black Amber and Solid White They are very Beautiful is true the white and the black when your clean with a metal utensil will remove the paint but not the Amber just treat it with Love if you planning to reuse it, I think the price is right my personal opinion. I use a Kraft box from another company in a 4x4x4 and is perfect including with the Lid on it and you have room for adding bubble wrap to ship it, I found the perfect Lid in Black and brushed silver from another company and it fit perfect. Overall I am very satisfy so far.
I ordered these, and a case of the black. They really are beautiful...and when burning, the glass glows wonderfully. However, they are also seriously costly once you add in the shipping...sigh. I will be ordering more, as I use them for my wine and coffee fragrances, but it's going to really cut into my profits. That being said, I DO like them very much! A few of the "cons" though: I discovered the hard way that you have to be VERY careful if you wash and reuse them. It was only after scraping the leftover wax from several, of both the amber and the black jars, that I realized the (paint?) scratches right off. You will need to heat them, and wipe with paper towels to clean...do NOT use any sort of utensil to clean with...or they will be ruined. Also, how about covers for these jars?? Or at least a suggestion of what size lids would fit? I'm having a heck of a time finding any, since they are just a TOUCH wider than your 12oz status jars (which I use wood covers for). If anyone else has discovered lids that work, I'd love to know what they are. Something else that's important to know...the Kraft/white boxes you can purchase for them here (which really are very cute...but again, pricey)....JUST fit the candle jar. Meaning, I don't think you could even use a lid, if you're going to use the window boxes, unless you made your own that fit INSIDE and sit flush with the lip of the jar. I ended up using the boxes I purchased for my 8oz square mason jars instead....and purchased slightly taller boxes somewhere else (which included a plastic covered window opening, twine bow, and 2 day shipping...for almost $3.00 less a dozen).
All in all...lovely jars, if you're ok with spending a bit more, and they are treated with care when cleaning. Will purchase again.
I found the amber finish spotty, inconsistent & full of bubbles. The glass is pretty thin too. I thought they felt a little cheap & of poor quality. Maybe I got a bad batch. Disappointed.
Love these ... make em in vintage green too! https://www.glassnow.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/small_image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/7/5/7527G22-8.5oz-Vintage-Green-Candle-Container_7.jpg
another beautiful jar Very happy and please fast shipping too.
ready for my 2016 new addition
I wanted to clear up when I said I was using the clear tumblers I meant the "classic" tumbler not the "straight sided" tumbler.
Just bought a bunch and they look just like the picture. No olive tones at all. Just wanted to clarify that. They are cute and I like how two pounds of wax will fill four. Makes it easy for making and estimating. I was using the clear tumblers previously which are a slightly bigger and needed a little more than two pounds to fill four. I will see how they sell in a few weeks.
Love them, and will be a great addition to my line, but they are not as brown or as Amber as I thought they would be, I see a slight olive green. It doesn't matter they are still beautiful.
I just received my jars today and I'm so very excited to start making candles with these amber jars. They are cute and definitely look professional / high quality. I will be a repeat customer for sure.
