In the spotlight: The Elgin Collection

Our homes are our sanctuaries, which is why choosing the right accessories can be important for creating the perfect ambience. We are shining a light on our much-loved Elgin collection to show you how this unique design stands out from the crowd.

The combined vision of two leading glass experts

This beautiful collection brings together the skill and vision of both Dartington Crystal and Caithness Glass Scotland to produce a family of crystal pieces that showcase our stunning colours in an elegant but simple form. Our Head Designer challenged Caithness to match our colours with glass chips and powders to create the impressive ‘marbles’ that crown the bottles. Recognised for their intricate and striking paperweight designs, Caithness achieved a pleasing spherical stopper that are works of art in themselves.

Highly Commended in Gift of the Year Awards

In early 2018 we were honoured to have the Elgin Collection named as a finalist in the Home Products category of the Spring Fair’s Gift of the Year Awards. The Spring Fair which takes place every year in February is a real highlight for us. Each year we exhibit Dartington Crystal alongside our other brands Royal Brierley, Beswick and Caithness, to showcase the very best of our offering.

Multiuse: Decorative and functional

This collection is both decorative and functional with many uses within the home. Each piece has been designed at a different height so when grouped together, make a real statement. An item as impressive, however, will look just as majestic as a stand-alone long stem vase. If you are a keen-entertainer, why not fill Elgin with your favourite tipple and use as a carafe at your next dinner party? The wide, flat rim pours well and will make a beautiful addition to your dining table.

A choice of three rich colours

Elgin is handmade using a method called colour casing. This means that just the inside skin is coloured and then covered with a clear crystal layer to produce that gentle, transparent appearance. It is available in Olive Green in medium, Amethyst in small and Ink Blue in large. These three rich colours will compliment any home whatever the style.

A unique gift

The Dartington collection is made up of hundreds of beautiful crystal items, but Elgin is the only range to feature a handmade element by Caithness Glass. This unique selection of products would make the perfect, unique gift for someone special.
