In a unique collaboration, Vintage Playing Cards and London Glassblowing have produced a stunning collection of luxury decorations to adorn your home this Christmas
From seasonal bunting made from original vintage playing cards to beautiful unique handmade glass-blown baubles, Vintage Playing Cards specialises in hand-made greeting cards, frames, clocks and gifts made from individually sourced original vintage games including playing cards, Bakelite dominoes and 1920’s parlour games. Perfect for the design-savvy, the collection of gifts also includes personalised frames that can spell a name or phrase creating a unique handmade and very special Christmas gift.
New for 2019, Vintage Playing Cards has collaborated with guest craftsman Emily Hatzar of Crafty Glass to create gorgeous glass heart, club, diamond and spade Christmas tree decorations, along with heart tealight holders.
The intricate glass decorations are handmade using a mix of sea and spectrum glass, edged with copper foil and 60/40 solder. They come with a black ribbon allowing them to be used all year round by being hung in a window and becoming beautiful light catchers changing colour throughout the day, as well as luxury Christmas decorations.
Special bunting made from vintage spelling cards look wonderful twisting around the Christmas tree or even for decorating the hall or mantelpiece. You can choose from a range of seasonal sayings such as Deck the Halls, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree, Bah Humbug and Noel.
There are festive baubles from London Glassblowing which creates beautiful glass pieces in the capital’s cultural hotspot of Bermondsey Street, founded by Peter Layton in 1976. Through the process of adding coloured granules to clear molten glass, London Glassblowing creates the most beautiful baubles that add a sparkle of sophistication to your Christmas tree.
