Our glass and vintage ceramics collection

The popularity of ornamental ceramics and glass pieces boomed during the late 19th and 20th centuries as new production methods made home decoration affordable to the average consumer. Large glass and pottery manufacturers – influenced by the styles of independent artists – created era-defining pieces, and made decorative glass and ceramics a familiar feature of the everyday home.

We source most of our items from the UK and Ireland, but our pieces originate from makers across Britain and Europe.

Late 19th century

From the 1890s – 1920, pottery and glass was heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, which remains one of the most influential decorative trends to come out of Britain. Contact us to view our range.

Art Deco

The Art Deco movement’s instantly recognisable geometric shapes and accessible style still resonates with modern audiences today. We offer a range of Art Deco props for hire.


Characterised by their sculptural, organic shapes, mid-20th century art glass and pottery pieces project a striking image. Enquire about our mid-century props for hire.


Post modernism classifies the diverse range of art styles that have emerged since the mid-20th century. We have a large collection of pottery and studio glass from the 1950s to the 2000s available for prop hire.
