About Us


My name is Alison Mason and I have been engraving glass for nearly 40 years. I run a small company, Inscriptions, based in Cornwall and producing hand engraved glass gifts for customers locally and throughout the UK.

Many of you will know me as "the glass lady in Truro Pannier Market". I continue to engrave glass in my workshop at home in Troon, Camborne and have a regular "pop up " shop back in the market in order to promote and showcase my work. 

I no longer offer a "while you wait" engraving service, but will process all orders as quickly as possible, usually within a few days, and arrange postage, delivery or collection as necessary.

Orders can be placed via this website, by email, by phone or in person on pop up days.


I offer a range of gifts, including engraved beer glassesengraved champagne flutes and engraved sherry and port glasses and all can be ordered online and posted to you.

I am happy to supply anything from a single glass to a large number of engraved awards. 

There is a large selection of Dartington glass and crystal, including the stunning Dartington Glitz range - beautiful engraved glasses, goblets, flutes and vases with fused Swarovski crystal elements. All can be engraved with your unique and very special message.

Have a look too at Dartington tankards, decanters, wine, whisky, brandy and port glasses.  

Engraved glasses and engraved gifts are unique and individual.  Each item is chosen by you, with thought and care, and with a particular person in mind, and because each is then individually crafted, they become very special gifts, saying exactly what you want to say.

So, whether you are looking for a personal gift for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or christening, or are hoping to find prizes, awards or commemorative items, I may have the answer.

Unlike a lot of glass engravers and suppliers, all my engraving is priced per word so you only pay for the words that you need.

If you have any problems, can't see what you are looking for or simply want to know more about any particular item, then please just give me a call and I will do everything I can to help
