Gravesham Trophy Centre is the premier supplier of engraved Firing Glasses and Masonic Glassware. Our Firing Glasses, hand-made and mouth-blown, coupled with quality engraving, have found favour with many Masonic Lodges over the years!
The "Balmoral Glass" Firing Glass is the correct weight, the base being solid glass. Bringing this glass down to the table will provide the required 'bang' - while a number of them in the same room, all being brought down together, resounds in a spine-tingling 'firing glass' sound.
Deep engraving is performed by use of our professional sandblasting machine. Extremely fine aluminium oxide (as fine as talcum powder) is blasted against a 'mask' (stencil), providing a deep image carved into the glass and leaving a matt white, exact replica of your Crest and text.
As an optional extra, you can choose to include a Satin Box with your Firing Glass. If not, it will be packed in a quality blue card 'die-cut' box.
Of course, the finished result on the Firing Glass is only as good as the artwork we prepare. That's what we work hard at - preparing high-quality artwork before engraving is the key.
A selection of our extensive catalogue of stock Masonic designs, ready for engraving. Contact Us if you have a specific Masonic design in mind for engraving; we can most likely source it if it needs to be added to the file!
Redrawing Your Own Masonic Lodge Crest

We can even redraw a Lodge Crest from a photograph, as long as we can make out the details. Here is an intricate design, digitally re-created from a very low-resolution image to give you an example of what can be achieved:
Unveiling The Legacy: The Remarkable History Of British Firing Glasses
In the grand tapestry of British culture and tradition, countless artefacts have etched their mark on the annals of history. Among these gems, one particular treasure stands out for its unique blend of functionality, craftsmanship, and historical significance – the british firing glasses, often referred to as a shot glass. The origins of UK firing glasses can be traced back to the 17th century, a time of genuine revelry and camaraderie among Britain's gentry.
Fashioned initially from fine crystal or glass, skilled artisans created these small vessels with meticulous attention to detail. The act of "firing" was central to the culture surrounding these glasses. A group would gather, and each person would raise their firing glass in a toast before downing their drink swiftly. As time evolved, so did the role of UK firing glasses. They witnessed the grandeur of regal banquets, Victorian soirées' luxury, and the Roaring Twenties' vibrancy. Their materials evolved, too, with pewter, silver, and even ceramics being used to craft these vessels. Through economic changes, social revolutions, and even wartime adversity, british firing glasses stood as timeless witnesses to the ever-changing landscape of British society.
