- Accuracy - The condition of all our items is accurately described, down to fleabites, water staining and noticeable scratches, with photographs of any damage, so you know exactly what to expect before you buy.
- Postage & Packaging - The number one concern for anyone buying antique + collectable glassware online has to be fear of their item being damaged during transit. To put your mind at ease, at the time of writing this, we have been dealing solely in glass for over 15 years, and post approximately 1000 items of glass a year, all around the world. In that time I'm proud to say we've only had a total of 2 breakages, which I think is pretty good going. Also, in the unlikely event of a breakage or loss, we do accept responsibility, and a full refund will be made.
- Refund Policy - We have a no quibble refund policy on all our items, so if you change your mind for any reason, you can return your purchase for a full refund of the item price. If we make a serious error in our description (such as missing chips or cracks), shipping costs will also be refunded.
The Loetz glass jug arrived safely this morning, it was much quicker than I expected! I am delighted with it, wonderful iridescence, and it displays superbly alongside a green Loetz compote I bought some years ago.

The elephant is absolutely wonderful - in fact, he is so beautiful that I am reluctant to give him away - but I must. I will look on your website to see if there is anything else I like.

Just to say absolutely delighted with the glass I bought from you. I have had many comments on it displayed in my kitchen window :) needless to say everyone wants them and I am happy that its not as easy to copy me as a trip to ikea.
