Estelle Colored Glass is a luxury brand of hand-blown and specialty made colored glass cake stands and stemware in a mix of jewel tones and soft pastels. The Estelle Colored Glass collection is comprised of original commissioned pieces made by glass artisans in Poland at a glass making company with a rich 100-plus-year-old history. Estelle Colored Glass pieces are best described as “jewels for your table.”
Estelle Colored Glass is inspired by Estelle, grandmother of company founder Stephanie Summerson Hall, who loved antiquing and had a special day of the week where she visited her favorite shops looking for new treasures in small neighboring South Carolina towns. During the summer months, Stephanie had the pleasure of coming along on many of these treasure hunts from her early childhood up through her college years. This marked the start of her love for colored glass.
Stephanie's grandmother often used her colored glass pieces at Sunday dinners. She was well-known as an amazing cook and every course was delicious. She always prepared a homemade dessert to be enjoyed on Sundays by family and friends who would often drop in for an afternoon visit. Her signature dessert was a from scratch decadent vanilla pound cake often beautifully displayed on a colored glass cake stand and served with a side of strawberry jello topped with whipped cream. The moist pound cake with the chilled jello and creamy whipped cream were a delectable blend.
Under her grandmother’s tutelage, Stephanie learned her first fundamental cooking techniques all the while spending invaluable time side by side with her in the kitchen and accompanying her on shopping trips.
Stephanie hopes these heirloom quality pieces help create special memories for you just like the memories she has of time spent with her grandmother, Estelle, affectionately also known as “Big Mama.”
