Six beautiful whiskey tumblers by Cristal de Lorraine. Each tumbler is beautifully cut with a fan design and etched with stars surrounded by a swirl effect. We’ve been unable to locate this design so they could well be a one off commission. They feel substantial in the hand and look stunning on display.

The history of Cristal de Lorraine is a bit of a strange one. It was founded in the 1920s by Théodore Heitzman, who at the time was the baker to the world famous St Louis cristallerie. He became a highly regarded glass maker and Cristal de Lorraine was later sold to Lalique in the 1990’s.

This gorgeous set of glasses are a fine example of their work and would make a perfect gift for someone special.

Georgia and Laura are co-founders of House of Hummingbird Interiors, with a shared passion for unearthing vintage pieces and helping them to breathe new life into contemporary interiors.

Their journey into interiors is perhaps a little unusual, Georgia as a photographer and tv advertising producer, and Laura with a successful career in psychology - yet they both have a keen eye for the exquisite and an instinct for objects with history and often a fascinating story to tell.

With a commitment to high quality beautifully made pieces, and conscious of the importance of sustainability, the appeal of vintage was obvious.

"There's a real value in using and enjoying what already exists." says Georgia. 'Many of our finds have lasted for decades or more so there's no reason to believe they won't endure for another century. These are investment pieces, created by skilled craftsmen, and with a rich history that adds depth to their beauty."

House of Hummingbird was founded on these principles, and a belief that objects that have stood the test of time have a special character, a point of difference and something that makes each piece unique.

"These pieces become like friends," agrees Laura, "The sheer excitement that we feel when we find a real vintage treasure is incredible! Much of our collection is turn of the century European, though we have unearthed the occasional piece from as far away as Russia." It really is more emotional than rational - and we only buy pieces we love, which can sometimes make parting with them quite hard."

Located in Bath, a beautiful and inspiring part of the world where history whispers around every corner. House of Hummingbird is more than simply an interiors emporium; it is a place where stories and memories come together in your home, for moments yet to be created.
