Made in their factory in England and renowned for their skilled artisan craftsmanship, Cumbria Crystal create their crystal and glassware using traditional techniques that have barely changed since the Roman Era. Their celebrated crystal is so utterly timeless that it is no surprise that they are the crystal of choice in British Embassies, Royal homes and luxury retail establishments around the world.
The company was founded to produce exceptional, hand made, full-lead crystal tableware. It has stayed true to its artisan roots and remains small with 14 artisans at their factory, where visitors can come and watch the alchemy of traditional British crystal making at its best.
Every aspect is considered in their flawless designs from gathering glass out of the furnace with a staggering temperature of 1240C to the final polish and inspection to maintain the highest of standards.
Fascinating to note, their crystal has been utilised in many contemporary and period action-packed dramas such as Downtown Abbey, Poldark and very fittingly James Bond (better make sure that martini is shaken, not stirred!).
