Fillmore Container - 14 oz Clear Tumbler

Recommended Posts

Anybody use a jar like this?

Do you use lids?

 

 

I was looking at the CS Straight Sided Tumbler but wanted something a little bigger

Open to ideas for something similar or another vendor.

 

Thanks

When shopping for jars I need a jar that comes with a lid so that is a catagory that can't be avoided.   The straight tumbler from Fillmore (above) there is nothing special about this jar and seems like everyone has this jar and especially being it has no lid, is a complete turn off to me.   The CS jar is very attractive and being that it comes in either amber or black as well as clear is a nice option and you can get in silver or bronze lids makes it very very appealing to me even if it is a tad small.   Most people prefer the smaller jars anyway, even though I myself prefer bigger.   Here is a picture of a 17oz jar with hammered copper lid I got last week of jars I ordered.   Don't know who I'm going to sell to or even what type label but I thought this was such an attractive jar with that lid that I just had to get and ordered 48 of them.   It may not be a bigger jar like what your looking for but I just love and think people would be very tempted to pickup the jar just for the sheer looks of it.\

Love the jar with copper lid.  I saw one similar at BBW.  Didn't like the scent though.

Candybee,  I didn't dent the lids in.....I ordered the jars and lids from Candles and Supplies.   With shipping they wound up to be 2.50 a jar which for that size jar and especially that lid, to me I thought was a pretty good price.

 

Awni, well being I use 464, it will be 2 wicks..I think the 2 cd5 wicks should work pretty well.   3 wicks would be way too much....well for me it would be.   I'm going to pour some today and I'll post some pictures....

@MilosCandles I use the glass tumblers from Fillmore. I like them. And, they perform well. Can be marketed as an old fashioned tumbler after burning. Also, have the clear straight-sided jars and I like them better. Very clean and sophisticated look.

Yes I use a similar tumbler from General Wax.  It's right about the same diameter.  The straight sided are the only ones I like.  I do prefer the status jars though even without the lid they seem to be thicker glass so less chance of breakage in transporting.

Awni since 1/13 with a 2 week cure from there.   I poured the candle in 464 using 2 cd 5 wicks which I guessed would be the size and it was spot on!!!

I poured in Fillmores French vanilla - an immediate throw (amazing) and I burned all the way to bottom...trimmed my wick I think once during the times I did burn and it was a most perfect, jar, and wick combo.   No sooting or anything... Just perfecto!

Hurts your eyes?  lol   Now that is funny.

Well, it's a beauty for sure and I have such amazing feedback from people seeing the jar with that lid.   I know will be a winner.   Just put a smashing label on it.

KK I know the jar your talking about and I did order a long time ago from them and it is the same exact jar.   It came with the silver lid, right?

C&S is a lot closer to me that Gen Wax in Cal.   Though the shipping was really the same...but like said, is the same jar.

Yes you could buy the silver lids, black lids or the plastic clear lids that fit that tumbler.  I'm in Calif so for me it was a no brainer!

Yeah go ahead and get them for sure.   What wax do you use?   Do you know what size wicks your going to have to use?

Trapp (and everyone), check out the Jar Store.  They have those flat metal lids in a wide variety of colors.  Trouble is, their website doesn't say wht jars they are compatible with.  Still waiting on a reply to my email.
