Hello and welcome to our new look web site.

Why buy from Discontinued Designs ?
We have been offering a matching service for 20 years now and have vast experience & knowledge having been involved within the Crystal industry for over 30 years. We are also keeping some of the old skills & traditions alive by offering exclusive patterns and keeping some of the old craftsmen in the trade which unfortunately is almost non-existence now due to the closure of the major factories.
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 as well as offering exclusive patterns.
We are also able to offer a bespoke service.
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 & Edinburgh have long since gone but it is a testimony to the skilled craftsmen from yesteryear that their designs are still enjoyed today.
Videos 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.
