3.6/5 based on 30 reviews on the web
Cumbria Crystal was founded in 1976 to produce very high quality, handmade, full lead crystal tableware and these qualities remain at the heart of the company today.

The last English manufacturer of luxury hand-blown and hand-cut full lead crystal, Cumbria Crystal refuses to produce overseas or use automated manufacturing methods and only uses traditional glassmaking methods.Commitment to quality remains exacting; each piece of crystal is inspected twice before receiving the Cumbria Crystal assay mark of first quality.

The Company has remained small and true to its artisan roots and employs 17 people at its factory in The Lake District where visitors can watch craftsmen and women producing crystal in the time honoured way.

The company is lead by Katy Holford who is reinventing cut crystal for 21st century living with contemporary and innovative designs. Uniquely both the designer and MD, Katy has an impressive design background. Winner of the Laurent Perrier Design Award 2004, Katy has worked with Wedgewood, Czech&Speake, Perrier Jouet, Vista Alegre and Crabtree & Evelyn.
