The Old Champagne Glass Company is owned by Nick Hewson and Judy Pearce. Judy is an interior designer who used to live and work in London until she was ‘enticed’ to East Anglia and Nick was a well known market analyst. We are based at Upgate Barn in North Norfolk or very often on the beach – see above.
Since we were established about ten years ago we have shipped several thousand items around the world. What started as a ‘lifestyle’ interest in champagne glasses has grown to include the whole range of stemware and Decanters as well as other objet d’art we find along the way
We acquire our crystal in many places but we go to France or Belgium to buy – particularly Baccarat, Val Saint Lambert and St Louis. In 2023 we have a number of buying expeditions planned.
Buying (and shipping) crystal can be slightly daunting. It’s important that our customers are confident with what they buy and we are more than happy to offer advice. You are very welcome to visit us at our barn – many do this – where we (normally) have a very extensive stock. Please call first on 07736 961926 to check best times.
Only a small part of our stock is listed on this website (we are hopeless at keeping all the online sites updated) Most of our current items are listed on http://www.sellingantiques.co.uk where there are 70-80 items. See also Love Antiques and our Instagram page (The Old Champagne Glass Co).
The entire marketing budget went on the numberplate…. for P G Wodehouse aficionados this photo was taken by the gates of Hunstanton Hall where Wodehouse wrote and indeed based many of his stories.
