William Yeoward Crystal - perfect for “The American Home”
At the October Tabletop Show, Luxe Magazine sponsored the tables in the lobby of 41 Madison - the theme was “The American Home”, and the designer who created the vignettes was Scott Sanders. Scott, who is known for having created Ralph Lauren’s Interior Design Department, is an accomplished designer with a quintessentially American eye. And as you will see below, one of Scott’s many strengths is a keen eye for color!
These tumblers pick up one of the secondary colors in the table cloth, also complemented by the handles of the flatware.
Here is the Amber Tumbler by itself:
… as well as on the bright and sunny “Patio” buffet setting seen here. Note the Vita HB Tumblers used in a novel way to hold the flatware:
The Vita Collection brings show-stopping glamour and fun to any setting. Here are the Goblets in 4 colors:
And the Highball Tumblers, available in the same 4 colors:
Finally, our Gold Oak Leaf Dish is a playful addition to this table, picking up on all the gold accents found in this setting:
The Oak Leaf Dish comes in the 13” and 8.5” sizes seen below, as well as 5” and 5.5” sizes:
Thanks to 41 Madison, Luxe Magazine and especially Scott Sanders for including us on these fabulous tables!

What’s on your vanity? Gold leaf dishes from William Yeoward Crystal, of course!
Each month, House Beautiful asks a design luminary “What’s on your vanity?” In the July/August issue, they’ve asked Monica Rich Kosann this question. Monica, a photographer turned jewelry/frame/handbag designer, takes her love of things vintage and golden and applies it to her vanity-related aesthetic. The result is lovely - see below!
Our Gold Dishes make great trays for loose jewelry! They are also at home as objets d’art on a coffee table or shelf, as well as on a festive formal table:
See a larger image of the featured Vine Gold Leaf Dish below:
And here is the Hortensia Gold Leaf Dish:
Corinne adapts well to higher elevations
As this feature aptly states, the Corinne Tall Cocktail Tumbler is “striking for both its simplicity and it’s height… the perfect excuse to break out those extra-long spoons in your silverware drawer - they’re perfect for iced tea”. This author enjoys the Long Island version! Bottoms up!
There is an impressive array of glasses in all shapes and sizes in the Corinne suite, including the tumblers pictured above: the Beer Tumbler, the Shot Tumbler, the Tall Cocktail Tumbler, and the Double Old-Fashioned Tumbler. Simple and chic!
Our Showroom all dressed up for the NY Gift Show!
The Gift Show just wrapped up, and despite temperatures ranging from the 20’s to the 60’s Farenheit, we all managed to get through it just fine! As usual, we spruced up the Showroom with loads of fresh cut flowers, which looked and smelled wonderful. We also made some display changes which really revived the look of the Showroom.
Below is a beautiful buffet set-up that Darren came up with, including one of the new midnight blue tablecloths we put on some of the tables.
A lovely combination of colors on our front table, with lemons under the Rosa Beehive adding a pop of yellow:
Here’s that gorgeous midnight blue tablecloth again. The colorful Vita Goblets really work when pulled together with the white Apsley China.
We’ve done a purple floral theme on the Country table below for the past few shows, paired with the Amethyst collection. This time, we introduced the Garland Vases, and went bright and sunny with yellow, green and orange.
The new Liza Vases in the foreground below are offered in the same colors as the latest Sophie Vases. They can add a fun pop of color just about anywhere!
Finally, the Country Stemware and American Bar found a new home. When the sun comes in the Showroom, the colorful Country glasses really shine!

Introducing the American Bar collection
Here is a sneak peak at a new collection of mouth-blown glass from William Yeoward Crystal called American Bar!
(Below - Dakota barware)
This collection evokes the Roaring ‘20’s and the era of Prohibition that followed, when many of the most brilliant American bartenders set up shop in European cities, including at the Savoy Hotel’s ‘The American Bar’ in London. In fact, many other chic hotel bars of that period in cities like London and Paris were known as “American bars”.
(Below: Lillian cocktail/champagne glass and cocktail jug)
Named after famous actresses of the era such as Lillian Gish and Marlene Deitrich, this collection reflects the glamour of this by-gone era. These glasses and barware pieces make you want to have a couple cocktails and cut a rug!
(Below - Corinne stemware)
At prices ranging from $21 - $150, the American Bar collection is both appealing and affordable!
