Cumbria Crystal was founded in 1976 by Lord and Lady Cavendish and a small group of local business people to produce exceptional, handmade full lead crystal tableware. Since then, the company has remained small and true to its artisan roots in Ulverston where each piece of crystal is graded at different stages of production attaining a quality standard to which others can only aspire. The result being beautiful contemporary classic designs and collections, appropriate for contemporary lifestyles.
Today Cumbria Crystal produces crystal for all the British Embassies and Residencies across the world to grace formal dinners and state occasions. They also design bespoke collections for retailers and designers such as Thomas Goode, Linley, Lee Broom, John Walker and Sons and others, as well as making a range of commemorative gifts to celebrate significant Royal occasions such as the Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Wedding and Royal Christening.
