Dry January is officially over, so pour yourself a tipple and have a read of this brilliant graphic from Dartington Crystal. A fabulously British brand, Dartington operates the only major crystal factory left in the UK, in Devon. They’ve been handcrafting crystal glassware since 1967.
So what is crystal? Basically it’s a very high quality glass with a slightly different chemistry to regular glass. It has higher refractive properties, so it sparkles more, and it’s much sturdier. Here are our top picks from the John Lewis dartington wine glasses range:
Dartington Chateauneuf glasses: £46 for 2
These John Lewis dartington wine glasses are beautifully elegant with their round bulbous top and long sleek base.
Dartington all-purpose wine glasses, set of 6: £25
We included these because they are amazingly brilliant value without comprising on quality.
Dartington Grand Cru wine glasses: £24.50 for 2 (half price)
These John Lewis dartington wine glasses are currently almost half price in the sale, and we love the elegant style of the flipped rim.
Dartington Glitz Noir Glasses: £42 for 2
These John Lewis dartington wine glasses are something a bit different and fantastic for a special occasion. They’re also exclusive to John Lewis.
And just in case you love a bit of colour, we thought we’d throw in another of our favourites:
LSA Polka metallic wine glasses: £30
These LSA polka metallic wine glasses are something a bit different and will add a great colour pop to your home! I also love their rounded shape and sleek base.
