Sourcing of items for collections If we are not able to supply the antique glass you require from our stock we may be able to source your item from one of our many contacts in the antique glass trade here and abroad. We will also be able to find many other kinds of 18th, 19th and 20th Century coloured and colourless glass. If this is still not possible we carry a 'Wants' list which is constantly reviewed.
We also hire antique glass from stock at competitive rates for display, television, photography and film.
