Welcome to C.R. Hose Glassware - Glass Printing
Decorated or printed glass and china have been appreciated for their beauty, form and longevity over thousands of years. Egyptians honoured kings and sent their masters to the next life with coloured glassware, such was the perceived value. The Chinese developed the firing of clay in kilns to produce porcelain. Practical everyday items were created as well as outstanding pieces of art that endure today. Over the centuries glass and china have been presented to visiting dignitaries as gifts of appreciation and friendship.
Today we continue this tradition by creating custom decorated glass and china, commemorating important occasions. Throughout our 67 years of operation we have specialised in creating unique glass trophies, printed mugs and mementos for sporting clubs, family reunions, anniversaries, weddings, special events, schools and many businesses. We pride ourselves in preserving traditional glass printing techniques. Our expertise in the application of precious metals and enamels to china and glassware is well recognised. If you are planning an event or involved in a club we hope our site will help you.
