*Please note that we do not offer a valuation service.
Currently we are not actively selling glass through this site but if you have specific enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us.
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 within three weeks if you are not completely satisfied. All we ask is that you let us know in advance and return the piece 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.
