Weck would have been my recommendation. Sometimes Ball/Kerr have "special" jars.

I just found something unusual in a Fathers' Day ad from a local store chain -- "Rednek (TM) Margarita or Wine Glass" -- Ball canning jars mounted on pedistals (high or low). And only $9.99, reduced from $28.00. Looks like they would seal, too.

Thanks,susan g. This sounds very unusual and I will try to find it to see if it might work. I am looking for something unique that will make a homemade item into a holiday worthy gift...I saw something similar at an outdoor sporting goods shop. I will look again with an eye for using it for my preserves...thx...ch

I saw these glasses at Peddlers village in Lahaska PA, they would seal, but the pedestals may make the whole thing top heavy..

Allans,
Specialty bottle carries the Bormioli jars I was trying to remember. They are Italian,not French , so no wonder I was wandering lost. Thanks again for the recommendation...ch

I use specialty bottle. Last season they had hot pink, one time use canning lids. They were fab.

Aside from Weck and Bormioli, the third variety commonly available is the French Le Parfait, in case you were thinking of those. And I know this is not exactly what you were looking for but if want to make the jars look neat for gift giving, you could also find different colors of cupcake liners and place them inverted on regular canning jars in between the lid and the ring. Looks kind of neat on jam.
