Roman Delight

I bought this for my mum, when I visited Annette and the team and had a tour round. To have actually seen these being made and to understand what goes into them is just magical, but above all that, that it's a treasure to hold and look at because it evokes the beauty of the original Roman versions. Of course, my mum adores the piece!

Our Roman Range of products are all handcrafted using Lead-free crystal glass, which is safe to use for long term storage of wines, spirits and liquids.

No moulds are used in the shaping of our glass, therefore each piece is unique; as a result all sizes are approximate, and matching sets may vary ever so slightly.

Our signature 'Aqua' colour is achieved by adding a mix of Copper-Oxide and Iron. The colour was popular during Roman times, and is reminiscent of the healing Spa waters of Bath.

Some of our Roman Range products are adorned with a trail of glass, known as 'Snake Threadware'. These threads are a symbol of eternal health.

All pieces are individually hand signed 'Bath' and dated with the year they were crafted. Additional engraving options are available.

Each product is available in alternative colours, and discounts are available for bulk purchases. Please contact us for more information.
