We specialise in twentieth century decorative and collectable glass. You can see and purchase our glass from this site or meet us at the fairs at which we exhibit. We try to show a varied selection of the glass we have for sale but if you do not see what you are looking for, please get in touch: we may have it in stock or be able to find it for you. If you would like further information please contact us.

*Please note that we do not offer a valuation service.
We are very experienced in packaging glass and to date no pieces have been damaged in the post.
All pieces offered for sale are in excellent condition other than occasional minor imperfections commensurate with age. It is extremely important to us that our customers are happy with their purchase, and so you have the opportunity to return the item(s) within three weeks if you are not completely satisfied. All we ask is that you let us know in advance and return the piece(s) in the same condition with the same or similar packaging and we will return your payment upon receipt. In the unlikely event of your item arriving damaged or broken, please retain all packaging until a claim lodged with Royal Mail is concluded.
PaymentWe accept payment by personal cheque. It usually takes 7 days for payment to clear after which we will dispatch your order.
We also take payment via PayPal if preferred. Please e-mail us if you would like to use this facility and we will send you an invoice.
