RETURNS & EXCHANGE POLICIES
We are absolutely sure that you are eager to hold your new AnnaVasily product that has just arrived in! Please wait! There is one more thing to do before opening your package!
Please, take a soft cloth and place it on a stable tabletop, having enough space for unpacking. Place the box carefully on the cloth and use a cutter or scissors to open the box. As you unpack, watch out for the fabric inside the box, as it contains your new AnnaVasily product. As you unpack, watch out for the tulle inside the box, as it contains your new AnnaVasily product. Hold the tulle with both hands and place it carefully on the cloth. Then, safely remove your product from the tulle.
Important note: Some of AnnaVasily products come dismantled. For instance, our high tea stands usually consist of a metal part along with two or more glass tiles. You will receive these parts separately in the packaging.
For assembly, place the glass tile with its metal “feet” facing down, between the two-rod connectors of the metal base. Your high tea stand is complete!
Conditions under which I can return my order for an exchange or refund
We will accept returns (for an exchange or refund) in the following circumstances ONLY:
- Damage (the item was received broken and there are snapshots of the item as well as of its original packaging).
- Order processing Error (You received a different item other than the one ordered).
- Colour (where the colour did not match the description i.e. you received a red item rather than the blue one which was ordered). However, you agree that the colour of the product may not be an exact match of the colour displayed on your monitor and that variations in colour due to monitor variations will not be grounds for an exchange or refund.
A return will only be accepted in the above circumstances if it is received by AnnaVasily within 30 days from the shipment date in the condition delivered (no additional damage) with all original pieces included in their original packaging and with original tags and barcodes attached.
Returns must be sent back to the address designated by AnnaVasily with any accessories or extras that may have been included with the shipment.
Apologies, but we cannot accept returns for the following reasons:
- Time (where we missed the customer’s deadline but fulfilled our Estimated Delivery Date – as shown in your order)
- If the products were bought from the Sale section of our website.
- If a product with wrong dimensions was ordered by mistake.
- Occasion (accessory is not suitable for occasion ordered for)
- The functionality of the product was not as planned: item is too heavy or there is a minor difference in colour. In the product page, we try to provide all the necessary information concerning weight, colours, dimensions etc.
- Colour (where the colour did not match what was stipulated). It can be really tricky to establish colour matches online for a number of reasons:
- Colour is applied handcrafted and some minor differences occur between products.
- Light (colour) acts differently when being reflected off a material than when emitted from a screen.
- It is very difficult to ensure consistent representation of colours across screens. Every computer or device screen represents colours differently, and that representation will keep changing over time as well, as the screen ages. The resulting differences can be quite significant.
We are constantly working towards improving the way we create and represent imagery of our accessories, including efforts to ensure more consistent capturing and rendering of colours.
- Where a product is broken during use or while unpacking;
- Dislike of product (the product was not aesthetically “as imagined” or stipulated), provided that the product meets the description on the Site

- This product is designed for use indoors and outdoors by adults who are knowledgeable of safe glass usage practices.
- Due to the nature of glass, a breakage may result to a personal injury.

- When glass products break, special care should be taken in order to reduce the risk of injury:
1. If a product is falling down, let it fall! Trying to catch it during the fall, may injure you. Wear gloves when handling broken glass. Disposal latex gloves are not appropriate.
2. When cleaning broken glass, use mechanical means to clean up the pieces. Tongs or tweezers should be used to pick up large pieces of broken glass. Small loose pieces can be picked up using a vacuum cleaner or a hand broom.

Errors may be corrected when discovered and AnnaVasily reserves the right to revoke any stated offer in order to correct any errors or inaccuracies. Although AnnaVasily has made every effort to display its products and their colours as accurately as possible, the displayed colours of the products depend upon the monitor of the user and AnnaVasily cannot guarantee that the user’s monitor will accurately portray the actual colours of the products. Products displayed may be out-of-stock or discontinued and prices are subject to change. AnnaVasily is not responsible for typographical errors regarding price or any other matter.
Measurements and Weight
Measurements of the products are clearly stated on the Site in the product page in the “Description Notes and Specs” section. There you can check the external measurements of the product (diameter if round, external length and width if not round, height and weight). Nevertheless, due to the fact that the products are handmade, we always allow for a +- 2millimeters difference in the external dimension and +-2 centimeters in the height with regards to products that are higher than 15cm.
In case you have trouble understanding measurements, we have also an image of the product together with a fork as a “measuring tool” (in the Product page), which can help you visualize sizes better. It is an image that compares your product to an average real size fork.
The handmade process of our production may result in minor differences in size, shape or colour from the sample or photo.
Products are sold in packages of multiple items or pieces. The number of items per package depends on the product and varies between 1 to 6 pieces. Prices are shown per package. Quantity is shown both in the product page and the cart. Quantity discounts may apply according to the quantity of packages purchased.
Our home accessories are made by hand. Therefore, our creation practice may result in minor differences in colour.
All colours are non-toxic (Lead and Cadmium free) and safe for use with food. Colours are fired and fused into the glass (they do not flake during dishwashing). They withstand scratches from steel cutlery 52% on the Rockwell Hardness scale or 6 on the Mohs scale (Cr/Ni plated cutlery). All colours are acid resistant and will not blur or fade when in contact with food ingredients that contain citric acid below 4% (vinegar, lemon etc).

Welcome to our glass world and enjoy your new unique AnnaVasily experience!
Professionals all over the world have experienced our unique dinnerware. All AnnaVasily table accessories are created through a handmade process, based on innovative techniques, where creativity and quality are dominant forces. Apart from being fashionable and beautiful, we are using our mother company’s experience and we strive to create user-friendly products that comply with your brilliant taste and style. Below, you will find information on how to take additional attention when using and storing them.
Taking Care of Metal parts
Although all of our high tea and cake stands on a metal base are created especially to fit your afternoon tea table, they may have some features that need to be paid closer attention to. Be careful when dragging your AnnaVasily metal accessory on a wooden surface, because metal is harder than wood and this may result in an undesired surface scratching.
Washing and Cleaning of dinnerware
At AnnaVasily, colours are qualified for minimum of 1000 dish-washing sessions. AnnaVasily dinnerware can be washed in dishwashers at a temperature up to 203⁰F (95⁰C). Nevertheless, you can extend the life and the vitality of colours by selecting a dishwasher cycle of max 140⁰F (60⁰C). The result also depends on the rinsing programs, type of dishwashing detergents and water quality.
Bonded accessories (accessories that are constructed from bonding glass to metal or glass to glass) should be cared for in a special manner. Such products come with a sticker “hand-wash only”. AnnaVasily bonded accessories should only be hand-washed in combination with mild detergents and in lukewarm water. Please, note that we recommend cleaning your champagne glasses by hand as well.
Metal parts (AnnaVasily accessory parts that are uniquely made of metal and are not bonded to the accessory) should not be immersed in water. Please use a damp cloth in combination with mild detergents.
Preheating of dinnerware
When preheating your plates, it is preferable to do so without food. Normal practice is that plates are warmed up at 158⁰F (70⁰C), they are plated with food and finally carried with cloth napkin to the table. This is done because serving the heated plate on the table might cause burns on the end user’s hands if he/she accidentally touches the glass.
Heating of dinnerware
AnnaVasily dinnerware can be heated in a microwave oven and kept in it at 800W, up to 10 minutes. Accessories with metallic colours (such as Dark Doe Brown) make an exception to this rule. These colours will burn, so as a rule we recommend not to use them in microwave ovens. Never use glass plates in grills. Direct contact with fire will cause breakage.
Acid Resistance of dinnerware
All AnnaVasily accessories’ colours are acid resistant. That is, colours are resistant to attacks by acids that contain up to 4% citric acid. Such acids are naturally contained in lemon, vinegar, passion fruit and other cooking ingredients.
Scratch resistance of dinnerware
Silverware, will not damage the AnnaVasily dinnerware.
Stainless steel cutlery contains carbon in order to increase the hardness of the metal. Depending on the manufacturer, this hardness falls between 40 to 52% on the Rockwell Hardness scale (the carbon contained in Japanese cutting knives or kitchen knives is 52%). Glass itself cannot be damaged by carbon, but some colours can be inscribed by it. In cases where the hardness of the metal exceeds that of the colour, it is possible that “pencil marks” appear on the surface of your plate. If this happens, rub the marks with alcohol and they will disappear.
