Welcome to the Centre of the Glass Universe.
Glass Etc, run by Helen & Andy McConnell, the Antique
Roadshow’s glass specialist, is Britain’s largest antique
and vintage glass shop.
The principal shop, housed within a former Salvation Army
chapel, measures 100 square metres, with an adjacent
exhibition gallery of about 25 square metres. Our stock is
vast, though not all on view. Drawing on Andy’s collection
of around 30,000 pieces, we attempt to cover the span
Helen & Andy sell [and buy] most forms of glassware,
ranging from decanters and wine-glasses through vases and
scent bottles to sculptural suncatchers and chandeliers.
Between 20-30 table lamps are generally on display and we
also stock a wide range of architectural ironmongery,
including door and window furniture, cabinet knobs, stained
glass panels, etc.
The ’Etc’ in our name covers all manner of other forms of
antique and vintage furniture and furnishings.
We are currently extending this website to allow samples
of our stock to be viewed and bought over the net. But
don’t hold your breath…
