Sophie Conran's new glassware collection debuts

Portmeirion adds new glass entertainment items to the ever-popular Sophie Conran glassware collection

At the New York Tabletop Show last month, Portmeirion Group debuted the beautiful new entertaining pieces in the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion Glassware collection. Classic, clean and stylishly designed, the innovative new pieces are perfect for everyday living and entertaining.

Made of blown glass, every piece features the same organic lines as the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion dinnerware collection, and each is unique in its own special way.

"Whether it's entertaining with family and friends or small intimate get-togethers by candlelight, the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion glassware collection is perfect for any occasion," states Wendy Motlaq, corporate vice president for Portmeirion Group in the US. "The addition of these new glass entertaining items to our already successful dinnerware line adds versatility and creates a complete versatile collection."

The new range of items adds to the existing ensemble of glass bowls, pitchers, highball glasses, balloon glasses, wine glasses and champagne flutes.

The new additions include:

* Cheese Dome with Platter - elegantly protects cheese and other hors d'oeuvres until ready to be served.

* 3-pint glass Decanter with Stopper - allowing wines to aerate with the wide surface allowing them to breathe for better flavour. It also makes a handsome accent to any bar when used for storing spirits.

* Covered Cake Plate - The 10.5" 2-piece set includes footed cake plate with glass dome. It can display a favourite homemade cake with pride or make a store bought cake look extra special.

* 5-pice Trifle Set - includes an 8" footed trifle bowl perfect for puddings, salads and desserts. Four co-ordinating 4.25" bowls complete the set.

* Set of two 15-ounce Large Wine Glasses - now available for those that prefer a large glass of wine.

* The 9.75" Hurricane Lamp - ideal for most kinds of candles and it looks great on any table or mantel. 

* Small 5.5" and Large 7.5" candlesticks - also available to help set the mood at any intimate dinner setting.

* Tea Light Holders - can be placed around the home for the perfect relaxed evening at home.
