Build your Emma Britton Glassware Collection with...

2nd May 2024


With so many pretty Emma Britton glassware designs, you might be wondering what to add to your collection next? Or, if you’ve not shopped with us yet, which piece to pick first. Here’s some ideas to help you grow or begin your Emma Britton glassware collection, and become a real patron of Emma’s designer style.

Collecting Emma’s beautiful glassware means you’re a advocate of great British design, a really special thing to champion. Emma’s coveted designs are featured in homes all across the UK and beyond, through both her ever-so collectable decorative glassware and the floral glass splashbacks on which the brand was founded. 

Decorative Glassware to Collect

Silver Birch Wine Glasses

If you’ve got a Silver Birch carafe and matching tumblers, why not add a decorative wine glass set too? You’ll be doubling the purpose of your table carafe, which can now also be used as a wine decanter. Silver Birch is a great collectors range as there are lots of different glassware types and combinations to choose from.

For a special treat to yourself, Emma’s beautiful champagne coupes are a luxurious addition. Offering a different drinking experience to flutes, coupes are a more traditional glassware shape and made from a refined crystal glass. A nod to vintage-style entertaining and a great choice for elevating Friday fizz or for cocktail making at home. 

Exotic Floral Crystal Wine Glasses

Exotic Floral Wine Glasses in Two Sizes

Emma Britton Exotic Floral Wine Glasses are available in both generous red wine and more petite white wine sizes. The wide bowl of the red wine glass allows the aromas to be fully appreciated, while a smaller glass for white keeps wine cooler. You might start with a set of one size, but do expand to both for a complete table set. A real must-have if you love to cook and host.

Silver Birch Vase

Finally, if you’ve completed your collection of all the Emma Britton glass tableware, then a beautiful vase should certainly be the finishing touch. You can then create a really cohesive tablescape with matching glassware at place settings and a show-stopping floral centrepiece. Try with both garden flowers for summer celebrations and dried foliage at festive times of the year. We welcome any ideas for shapes you’d like to see favourite patterns available in, so do get in touch.

Emma Britton for Chatsworth: Chinese Wallpaper Crystal Bud Vase

The Silver Birch Vase is a really practical shape for full bouquets, but for smaller posies choose a Bud Vase. The Emma Britton for Chatsworth Collection features a delicate little vase in the ‘bird and branch’ pattern and is the ideal size for displaying individual stems to brighten up dressing tables and sideboards. You could create a cluster of bud vases with select flowers leftover from a larger bunch too. Emma’s Chatsworth glassware patterns are inspired by their Chinese Wallpaper, available exclusively at Chatsworth’s two gift shops on the Estate. Chatsworth House is well worth a visit where you can experience the original wallpaper designs, the papers are some of the most frequently admired decorative objects at the house.

Starting your Emma Britton Glassware Collection

If you’ve not yet chosen your first purchase (perhaps you’re spoiled for choice!), then try these suggestions for glassware staples that you can build a collection around. 

Set of 4 Crystal Drinks Tumblers Exotic Floral

Choosing glassware that you will use everyday is a good start. A set of pretty tumblers is ever-practical and can be dressed up for hosting too. Juice, tick; water, tick; spirits and short drinks, tick! Find your perfect glass from Emma’s decorative tumbler selection. 

Silver Birch Carafe

A decorative drinks carafe is also an excellent first choice, an affordable piece that is guaranteed plenty of use. Use for water, wine and summer punches, a great size for keeping drinks cool in the fridge too. And when not in use for serving drinks, small bunches of flowers look beautiful displayed in one also. Choose from dainty and dappled Silver Birch or the illustrative Floral design.
