Who Makes Our Engraved Handblown Glassware?
Customers that stop by the store are always charmed by the Rose Ann Hall handblown engraved Mexican glassware that we carry. The cool aqua, blue and green colors dance in the light, and inspire little dreams of enjoying a glass of bracing, cold iced tea, or a lazy Sunday margarita next to the pool.
But few realize that Rose Ann Hall is dedicated to supporting and employing the disabled in their home town of San Miguel de Allende, a small colonial town in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Charlie Hall, owner and director of operations, is a fierce advocate for the disabled.
Charlie tells us his reason for seeking out employees with physical limitations: "I want to give back to the disabled community; the families, professionals and all who are involved with this issue, the lessons that I have learned through my own struggles and working with other disabled individuals."
Beautiful Engraving Captures the Light on Mexican Glassware
Traditional handblown Mexican glassware is expertly engraved in the Rose Ann Hall workshop. Delicate flowers and leaves are carefully etched into the slubbed and bubbled hand blown glass surface. The result is at once sophisticated, yet humble...elegant, yet hand crafted. Mexican blown glass is sturdy and durable, but the light captured by the faceted engraving applied by Charlie's team of craftsmen adds extra sparkle to each place setting on your table.
Rose Ann Hall Mexican glassware and stemware are some of our best selling items at Melissa Guerra. We carry not only their classic green, aqua, blue and clear designs, but classic Mexican blue rim glassware as well.
