Our Story

The Estelle Collection is a luxury brand of hand-blown colored glass cake plates (coming September 2019) and stemware.  The Estelle Collection is comprised of original commissioned pieces produced in Poland by a glass making company with a rich 100-plus-year-old history.  We just hope our refined and modern colored glass collection starts a revival of colored glass that is reminiscent of a past time. 

The Estelle Collection is inspired by my grandmother, Estelle, who loved antiquing and had a special day of the week where she visited her favorite shops looking for new treasures in a few small neighboring South Carolina towns. During the summer months, I had the pleasure of coming along on many of these treasure hunts. My favorite collection she was always adding to was her colored glass collection.

My grandmother often used her colored glass pieces at Sunday dinners. She was well-known as an amazing cook and everything she prepared was delicious on down to the dessert.  She always prepared a homemade dessert to be enjoyed on Sunday by our family and she was always well-prepared with enough for extended family and friends who would often dropped in for a Sunday afternoon visit.  Her signature dessert was a from scratch decadent vanilla pound cake with a side of strawberry jello topped with whipped cream. The moist pound cake with the cold jello and creamy whipped cream were a delectable blend.

I hope our refined and modern colored glass collection pieces help create special memories for you just like the memories I have of time spent with my grandmother, Estelle, affectionately also known as "Big Mama."
