Collection Story

The inspiration for this collection came to Richard when he first discovered several unusual yet strikingly beautiful antique bottles, dark green in colour, organic in form and with a seal impressed into the glass. They piqued Richard’s curiosity and after some research he learnt that bottles of this kind were first made in London c.1650.

New glassmaking techniques at the time allowed for much stronger bottles to be produced, ideal for transporting wine, beer and other liquids. These bottles were not cheap to produce but they were strong enough be reused time and time again over the course of several years. Knowing this, the owner of the bottles would have their seal impressed into the glass so they could be refilled at the wine merchants, brewery or distillery and returned to the rightful owner. Interestingly it was English bottles from this era that made bottle fermentation and the production of Champagne possible.
