The perfect flower for the perfect vase; an exploration 

At Cumbria Crystal, we understand we are best known for our stand out pieces which have featured many times on the silver screen (Downton Abbey, James Bond, The Crown). However, this Mother’s Day we wanted to focus on one of our best kept secrets; our luxury, crystal vases.

A staple within the company for many decades we have over 50 vases – spanning over many of our collections – which are available in such a variety of shapes and sizes that no flower will be left out in the cold.

Here are our perfect pairings for this Mother’s Day

Single, dried hydrangea

Native to Asia, this morning-sun loving flower is ideal for a statement piece when dried; ideal for the mother who prefers something she can keep longer than your fresh bouquet.

The Rose

When we reached out to you via social media, the rose became a favourite when describing your favourite flower. Favouring the climates of the UK and US, this edible and highly fragranced flower has different meaning depending on the colour of the petal.

A bunch of tulips

The sign of Tulips is a sign of Spring and they are a true rainbow of colours and shades, originally from Iran. Their soft stem requires a vase that can support their voluptuous heads as they drink and bloom.

At the time of publishing, all vases featured are in stock and can be ordered in time for Mother’s Day if the order is placed on or before 10th March 2021.


Would you like to commission a vase, or possibly a selection of glasses from our collections? If you place an order and we do not have your item in stock we can send you a beautifully presented commission letter to pass on to your mother. This letter will explain that you are having crystal especially handcrafted for her, so it will be truly bespoke. We aim to deliver commissioned pieces within 8 weeks of the order date. Please state COMMISSION in the order notes if you would like this option.
