'The Favourite' Vessels Information

Ordering, Postage, Payment, Import Duty & Safety   'The Favourite' Vessels   Our Reference Library for 18th century Glass

In 2017, we were commissioned to make a series of glass vessels for 'The Favourite', a film about the political machinations behind the scenes during the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714). They also selected some Shaft and Globe bottles.

The glass we made was based directly on that of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, much of it in the delicate Façon de Venise style that reflected Dutch and English glass of the period; very suitable as Queen Anne was the last of the Stuart monarchs and her first cousin was William of Orange (William III of England and husband to Mary, Anne's elder sister).

See this page for vessels in stock.

Please contact us for information and to place orders.
