Cumbria Crystal

Details

Our small factory shop stocks crystal falling just short of Cumbria Crystal's legendary 'Premium Quality'.

The Cumbria Crystal Factory shop is the only outlet in the country where crystal that falls just short of Premium Quality can be purchased. We challenge our guests to find the flaws that cause us to downgrade the products! They are often almost imperceptible and therefore make exceedingly attractive gifts.

Premium Quality products are also available, but often have to be made especially for you. A wine glass, for example, takes between 8-15 days to make and requires the collective skills of at least 10 artisans! Definitely worth the wait of it not in stock! The company ships worldwide.
