Manufacture Process

Manufacture Process

Each Anchor and Mill Glass set starts life as a single tube of high-grade Borosilicate glass. Unlike crystal glassware which by definition must contain at least 20% lead,Borosilicate glass is 100% lead free.

Heated over the hottest part of a naked flame, each tube is carefully expanded using human breath and the careful eye of a master glassblower. Slowly and steadily, the tube expands and is shaped into the beautifully crafted glass you see here in the photos.

All our glasses are handmade and must pass our quality control standards before being selected for packing into our trademark Vintage packaging. Each box of Glasses is stamped with the Anchor and Mill Brand, ready for delivery to you, our valued customer.
