Helvellyn is our most handsome traditional range and has its roots in Jacobean design. The elegant pattern of flutes and thumbprints was designed by Lady Grania Cavendish. This collection is found in British Embassies and residencies around the world and has featured in many films and hit tv series including James Bond, Spooks and Poldark.
The name Helvellyn shares it’s title with one of the most significant and spectacular mountains in the Lake District National Park, close to the Cumbria Crystal Factory
Crafting exclusively by hand inevitably means that a small proportion of our products do not pass the rigorous quality checks required to be assessed as Premium Quality. These are classified as ‘Slightly Imperfect’ or ‘Second Quality‘. ‘Slightly Imperfect’ products may have minor flaws such as small bubbles, stones, slight discolourisation or subtle variations in size or weight. Customers for whom compromise is not an option should consider the Premium Quality.
