About GLASSpheme

On Etsy since 2015

The story of GLASSpheme...

...began over a decade ago with a chance encounter: a girl, an open air antique market in the hills of West Virginia, and a fabulous piece of Blenko glass. The COLOR! The CURVES! I was hopelessly hooked. And while it all began with Blenko, those sparkling gems of genius proved merely a gateway drug. From there, I moved on to Empoli cased glass, and then to Murano, then into Europe at large. Thousands of pieces of glass and hundreds of hours of research later, I just had to share the wonders of this beautiful obsession with the world.

If you've collected mid-century art glass over the last decade, chances are, you're already our customer! GLASSpheme takes over from Pachuco’s Cadavers, which sold thousands of pieces of glass via the web and eBay between 2005 and 2014. After a brief hiatus, we’re back—with a new (probably not much better) name--GLASSpheme! However, we still adhere to the same strict standards of service and ethics that keep our customers coming back.

1) We know glass and never misrepresent a piece’s origin, age, maker, and provenance--not knowingly, anyway. (If we’re not sure, we’ll make an educated guess—but we’ll always be clear about our level of certainty.) But—if we based our representation of your glass purchase on, say, a collector's publication or well-known auction company, and you later find a more reliable source that proves us wrong (e.g. an original manufacturer’s catalog featuring the item), there is NO statute of limitations on returns!

2) If you don’t LOVE it, no problem—send it back within 14 days of receipt and we’ll refund your money minus actual shipping costs. (If the item wasn't as we described, you won't be out a penny--just let us know and we'll send a pre-paid return shipping label.)

3) Properly packaged glass, in our opinion, doesn't get damaged: Not ONE of our customers has ever received a box of tinkling glass shards from us. Nevertheless, there's a first time for everything (plus we probably jinxed ourselves here) and our shipments are always fully insured. In the ridiculously unlikely event your purchase arrives damaged, just email us a photo (and whatever other info our carrier may require) and your refund is on its way.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

GLASSpheme loves custom orders! But how do we 'customize' vintage glass? Simple. We love glass and we love our customers--and there are many ways we can help!

1) Volume discounts: Let's say there are several pieces you MUST have. Let me know, and I'll send you our very best price for the lot.

2) Custom displays: Say you have a special place in your home that SCREAMS for a glass display. Send me a photo of the space, your budget, and the accent colors for your room, and we'll send you photographs of possible groupings and our special pricing for the lot.

3) Tell us what groupings you have in mind, and we'll photograph them together for you so you can see how they'll look together.

Gift wrapping and packaging

What could be better than giving a gorgeous piece of vintage glass as a gift? (Aside from getting one, that is.) Glass is beautiful and functional--mostly! Consider a super mod biomorphic bowl or cased glass jar for a vanity or dresser, a platter/centerpiece for fruit on a countertop, or a vase for cut flowers. Not only does vintage glass bring exquisite delight to the most mundane of household functions (you should see our soap dishes), but our beauties increase in value over time. Send us a note telling us your purchase is a gift, and we will send it along with your personalized gift card, colorful tissue paper and a bow. (You alone will receive the receipt by email.)

Can I Select Custom Arrival Dates?

GLASSpheme ships your purchase on the very next business day, but we're flexible too! If you're going away on vacation or have a special date you'd like your gift to arrive, send us a note, and we'll time our shipping for you!

How can I get coupons for your shop and be informed of sales?

Simple! Join the GLASSpheme mailing list! Paste this link in your browser, send us your email address, and VOILA--you'll be among the first to know when your favorite piece of glass is on sale, or when we're offering coupons.

Do you purchase collections?

We sure do, all the time! Simply send us a photograph of the pieces you wish to sell and we'll make you our best offer! If you accept it, all you have to do is send us an invoice through Paypal, and ship it to us, if local pick-up isn't possible.
