Wine glass

Post by greycaster on Mon Oct 30, 2017 9:42 pm

I'm getting some grief from the wife as I broke one of the crystal wine glasses that came with our Warwick XL. First question is do theses glasses come as standard with the van. If the answer is yes, does anybody know where to get replacements.

The former owners of our current van must have taken away the four glasses together with the complete crockery. Our previous two vans included above but we took them off for safe keeping and the lot was unnecessary weight. The design of the glasses is not remarkable so are likely to be available in most high street shops. Probably pick up one from say £1 upwards depending on the advertised crystal content.

I would think the best place to try is A/S why not give the spares dept. a call. Might be a costly exercise though.
Yes mine came with both our vans.

They do come with a new van and I never used mine, which is why they still have the labels on. They are Eclat longchamp 17cl part no 0883314564266.
Doing a google search, they are widely available. On Amazon they are £26 for a pack of 6.  drinksallround

When I broke the second one of our original four I just went round the local charity shops with one of my remaining ones as a sample and bought half a dozen almost identical for £2. No stress now when using a wobbly table outside...

We broke a glass, I say we because when I break something it's my fault, when I don't it's our fault  snigger We just bought a similar set from Argos, think the were about £6 for 4.

Its very difficult to get glasses narrow enough to fit in the clips provided. The ideal and economical substitutes are those used in French Cave's for wine tastings. They usually come with fond memories or occasionally with no memory at all.......

Two things to bear in mind if replacing all to have a matching set - stems need to be thin to fit the clips and if the foot is too wide, it will force the stems out of the clips.

I can't believe I did this but I found an original China service that A/S used back in the '90's for my A/S. It was made by Biltons and called Spring Bouquet. It was on Ebay priced at £20 for and 80 piece service. plus place mats etc. I have refitted the crockery holder, (i took it out as it didn't serve any purpose at the time) and put back what A/S used to supply with my van. The rest is in a box in the garage. So plenty of spares snigger  I do use it but as there is only one of me it tends to be a bit like the mad hatters tea party and move round one until its worth doing the washing up biggrin

Biffo- member Phillips is in need of 9" dinner plates (I only have one spare), so a PM to him may help him out if you have any of that size surplus.

You'll see his post here

Crockery Add on

Post by Dave 418 on Fri Nov 03, 2017 8:16 am

When we moved the crockery from our Duetto into the Rienza ,we didnt have wine glases from the start. We decided to look for some larger dishes for the likes of pasta meals having more storage space. After a long search we gave up with Bilton and bought a couple of plain white dishes from the pot shop on Whitby Quay side. They had lots of wine glasses but nothing we really liked so its back to Sainsburys plastic wine glasses. They fit the clips in the cocktail cabinet and the holders in the arms of our camping chairs. You need a decent sized glass the origional look more like sherry glasses.

My thoughts exactly, that's why mine went straight in to a storage box in the house drinksallround
