Outlander Vessels Information

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

We tend to make colourless Outlander glass from early October to late May and bottles in early summer (June and July)

In 2013, we were contacted by the production company for the Starz television series "Outlander" and were asked to make glasses for the set. Three designs were selected for the production. They also selected some Shaft and Globe bottles and some Onion bottles.

In 2015, for the second season, we supplied Outlander with more dark green bottles, particularly the long-necked Shaft and Globe type, as well as some clear glass decanters with stoppers.

In addition, we have been asked by several Outlander fans if we could make the carafe featured in the Wedding Scene from the first season, as well as clear glass versions of the bottles. We have also been asked for a champagne flute in the style of a No.39 glass. Details of these are below.

Decanters for the Third Season In 2016, for the third season, we supplied another large quantity of glasses: repeats of the original glasses we supplied for the first season (our No.35, No.39 and No.51). Also for the third season we supplied a large quantity of small and large decanters without handles (see photo).

We tend to make Outlander glasses, carafes and decanters to order between October and May so that we can have orders completed in time for Christmas and have some stock for the rest of the year. We tend to make bottles for one or two months a year around June.

Please order early. This helps us to organise our blowing schedule.

See this page for vessels in stock.

(Not available on case gin bottles.)

For customers in the United States, here is a list of estimated prices for Outlander glasses including carriage to the USA:

2 x small version: £80 + £34 carriage = £114   ($152) (No.35)
4 x small version: £160 + £44 carriage = £204 ($271) (No.35)
6 x small version: £240 + £54 carriage = £294 ($391) (No.35)

2 x medium version: £90 + £38 carriage = £128   ($170) (Nos.39 and 51)
4 x medium version: £180 + £52 carriage = £232 ($309) (Nos.39 and 51)
6 x medium version: £270 + £66 carriage = £336 ($447) (Nos.39 and 51)

2 x large version: £120 + £40 carriage = £160 ($213) (Nos.39 and 51)
4 x large version: £240 + £56 carriage = £296 ($394) (Nos.39 and 51)
6 x large version: £360 + £72 carriage = £432 ($575) (Nos.39 and 51)

All these carriage prices are for tracked and signed-for deliveries and are based on a 'Next Business Day' delivery service. They are estimates only, and the actual charge may vary slightly depending on the size and weight of the parcel. The US Dollar prices are also estimates, and are based on the mid-market price on 12th September 2017 of 1GBP = 1.33USD. The actual price will depend on the exchange rate offered by PayPal on the payment date.

For parcels under 2 kilos (typically parcels with one or two small or medium size glasses) there is an alternative delivery service which will take five to seven days, but which is about £8 to £10 cheaper than the prices above.

Customers in the United States and other countries can expect to pay Import Duty. See below for information.

For an up-to-date US Dollar price, please visit a financial website such as xe.com.

Couriers and postal companies are not keen on insuring glass, so we operate a replace or refund policy.

We are able to take PayPal payments, and will invoice directly via PayPal. If you are unfamiliar with this method, please see this page or ask us for payment details.
