How do I care for my purchases? Are they dishwasher safe?

All our glassware is lead-free and safe to place in the dishwasher. Extreme changes in temperature may cause our glass to crack. Glass pieces with handles are particularly vulnerable. We suggest you not use glass in the microwave or place in the refrigerator or freezer to chill. Boiling hot liquids should never be poured into any handled glass. When pouring hot liquids into any other glass, place a metal spoon in the container before pouring. Intense heat may cause a candleholder to crack if the flame is allowed to burn below the rim.

All our pottery is lead-free and safe to place in the dishwasher or microwave. We do suggest you put baking dishes in a cold oven, rather than a preheated oven, when cooking or baking, allowing them to come to temperature as the oven warms.

All glass and pottery items are packed with proper-care instructions. Please read them carefully.


Why are there differences in the sizes of the same item?

Part of the allure of handmade pieces is that no two are identical. Many of our pieces are free blown or hand-thrown, so the sizes will not be exact. Therefore, the measurements given for all glass pieces and pottery designs are approximate.


What is the difference between first and second quality?

The nature of our handblown glass and pottery is such that each individually made item will have its own character and will contain minor imperfections and variations from piece to piece. All Simon Pearce glass and pottery must meet specific quality control standards for size, weight, height, and shape. It is then qualified to be sold as a first- or second-quality item. Second-quality items simply meet a slightly more relaxed standard but are equally as durable as our first-quality items. Seconds are not available for sale online. Second-quality glass and second-quality pottery are available in our Quechee and Windsor, Vermont, stores.


Do you ever discontinue a Simon Pearce item?

Simon Pearce may “retire” a piece, which means a particular size or design may be discontinued and removed from production. We strive to communicate the discontinuation of an item long before we deplete our inventory in order to provide sufficient time for our patrons to complete their collections or replace cherished items.


Do you offer gift wrapping?

Many of our items are eligible for gift-boxing in our signature Simon Pearce Gift Boxes. Select items come with a white ribbon when the gift option is selected.
Items unavailable for gift boxing include: all seconds, lampshades, books and oversized products.
Gift boxing will be automatically be applied to ALL eligible items within your entire order when you enter a gift enclosure card message.
If you wish to have only select items in your order gift-boxed, please contact customer care.
