NOW IN OUR 20th YEAR
Established since 1999 Discontinued Designs has been providing a matching service for long lost Crystal patterns.
We ship WORLDWIDE and have stock available for many designs and a database system for items not available at the time of ordering.
We source new stock direct from manufacturers and independent retailers from around the World.
We also now offer pre-owned crystal in some patterns.
Please contact us should you require pre-owned items not currently available.
The factories of Thomas Webb, Royal Brierley, Stuart, Webb Corbett & more recently Edinburgh have long since gone but it is a testimony to the skilled craftsmen from yesteryear that their designs are still enjoyed today.
In 2000 Discontinued Designs organised a petition to prevent Dennis Hall (home and glassworks of Thomas Webb) from being demolished. It has now been converted into luxury apartments.
Please take time to view the videos we have on our web site for Thomas Webb,Edinburgh crystal & crystal production.
Although the factories no longer exsist (Thomas Webb closed down in 1990 & Edinburgh in 2005) these are fascinating glimpses of the history & skill of the manufacturers and craftsmen.
We hope you enjoy viewing them.
IDENTIFICATION OF GLASSES
Due to the high number of pattern identification requests for onward selling a charge of £5 + vat per item will now be applicable. This amount will then be refunded once an order has been placed with Discontinued Designs.
