Isn’t it incredible how something as fragile, can survive almost unscathed through time? That the antique and vintage glass which Fil de Fer finds, manages to last through history, is something rather special. It means that it has been treasured, or cared for and treated with care. We can be grateful for this care, because it means we can offer such a special range of glassware, of so many varieties – from retro milk bottles to antique wedding chalices.

Picture yourself inviting friends and family to a summer lunch in the garden. Cheese, bread and grapes laid out upon rustic chopping boards, fruit bowls and of course with a glass dome to protect the cheese.

Experiment a little!
