Hope this helps a little. For most of 2010 there was the rumour that a restricted range of the best selling Edinburgh crystal patterns would be out sourced under the Stuart brand. If you check on auction websites you will get an indication of what people are prepared to pay. In the past, the company manufactured the glass panels for the lamps on royal carriages, giving the brand the touch of a fairy-tale romance about them. All are unused and in there original boxes. However, even we are 'human', and although such occurrences are very rare, if any purchase is not as described please get in touch by either direct email or through the Ebay messaging service and we assure you that we will work to resolve any issues you may have. Any information about the glasses would be very gratefully received.
Can you guide me on how to sell them and how much I might ask for them? At checkout, if you have bought more than one item please wait until we send you an invoice as we always combine postage costs. With thanks Amanda Dear Amanda, From the limited records that I have, Edinburgh Thistle was first introduced in 1896. Decanters tend to be easy to match as they do not have to be exact and the shape is not critical. Why are some stamped with Made in Edinburgh whilst others are not? Thank you for your help, Robin Hi Nigel Many s Some years ago my wife gave me six beautiful whiskey tumblers bought in John Lewis. Operating into the twenty-first century, it took on unique collaborations with university students, offering them experience, and adding fresh and modern designs to the Edinburgh Crystal repertoire. Edinburgh Crystal has been allowed to slip ignominiously into oblivion — what a shame! When did the etching design change? Within the glassware business, there have been many mergers over the time, including Edinburgh Crystal joining with Thomas Webb and Dema Glass.
Just to let you know I have an Edinburgh Crystal whisky decanter unsure of design but it closely resembles the design of the Braemar glasses in your link. What would prevent a small group of the acual workers who were with Edinburg from starting up a very small operation to revise the Thistle style on a limited basis. If for any reason your item does sell for in excess of £30 but you would prefer a cheaper option recorded delivery , please let us know. If you want to send me an image of a glass I will recommend the nearest options. Caliper measures were used for sizing but the glass outcome was totally reliant on the expertise, eye and craftsmanship of each glass maker — there was bound to be a minute variance from master craftsman to master craftsman.
The arm of the business was purchased by and is still manufacturing paperweights in Scotland. I live in Hertfordshire, if anyone would like them to complete their set or as replacements please get in touch to discuss a price. I wondered if these have any value or if you have any suggestions as to who might be interested in looking at them. All we ask is that you contact us prior to returning the item so we know to expect a return. These scarce Edinburgh Crystal Whisky Tumblers are wonderfully crafted and are supplied in original presentation box They have never been used. I have continued to pursue the fate of the Edinburgh brand so that we can keep our valued, patient and long suffering Edinburgh Crystal customers aware of what is going on.

I also have several Galway crystal items in presentation boxes:-Flutes with golfer, happy birthday,and engagement, wine goblets, 2 decanters. Alexander Jenkinson died in 1909 and the business was inherited by Stanley Noel Jenkinson. I have looked back at my archive books and cannot find any reference to it. Many thanks Maria Dear Nigel, Whilst searching through and clearing out some old glassware from my mother-in-law, we have found a boxed set of 6 Edinburgh Hand Cut imported Ambassador sherry glasses. We want you to be happy and return again and again which is something we feel the customer will not do if they feel they have been grossly or unfairly charged for postage. If this is not suitable for yourselves I wonder if you could suggest somewhere where I can sell them.
Have searched the net and found nothing on these glasses. Dear Ruth, I have spoken to a couple of people better qualified than me on Edinburgh Crystal. I hope you find these interesting and I look forward to hearing from you. Sadly you will just have to continue to be lucky with ebay or other auction sites or companies. After all, a happy customer is potentially a returning customer.
The company was founded in 1867. It was a company of geniune crystal art that I am afraid will never be seen again. During 1969, there was a move to a site of over 7 acres 28,000 m 2 in , some 10 miles 16 km from Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Crystal company in 2006 and following its subsequent acquisition by , it became solely a brand name. Our drinking glasses make up most of our collection, yet we also stock items such as fruit bowls and decanters. When each piece was made were they to the same exact measurements in regard to height. In March 2011 I have finally been advised that there are now no plans to keep the Edinburgh brand nor to supply the best selling patterns under any brand.
Do any of your catalogs have schematics or pictures of the Braemar line, and can you assist me in getting a copy of them so I can strengthen my search? The mother-in-law believes they could be pre 1970 but not sure. What I would recommend for customers looking to replace or buy new glass is to take a good look at the range of glasses. Caithness Glass are notable for. In addition to , Edinburgh Crystal made , , , and , in several ranges. We stock a multitude of different shaped glasses for purposes such as wine, champagne, whiskey, liqueur, sherry, port and hock glasses.
Ideal situation would be to sell lot completely. Since then I have been searching the internet. Can you shed any light? I hope you find these interesting and I look forward to hearing from you. I have not been able to find any information on the Edinburgh Braemar design. Do you know how old it is? Difficult to put a value but I estimate that the decanter would have cost around £750 and each glass around £75. Range The Edinburgh Crystal range is one of the most extensive and varied here at Stage House Replacements. This is the most beautiful cystal I have ever seen and you have to be very, very special for me to even be able to view them never mind use them.
