House by John Lewis Gibraltar Tumbler
disappointing- cheap and not cheerful
They look so nice on the shelf and the coulours are vibrant but after a few washes the coating comes off. why dont they make these out of couloured glass and charge more rather than these cheap coated poor quality items? very disappointing as you expect better quality from John Lewis

Grand-kids love them!
These glasses are just great, lovely colours, good quality, quite heavy but sturdy, stable, smooth edge and nice to drink from. The grand children just love the colours and no more spillages!

Pore quality item
Coloured coating started peeling off after two hand washes with no abrasive cleaning products

These tumblers look fantastic the colours are wonderful but they are only coated, so after washing by hand a few times the colour starts to peel off. What a shame the teal looked great in our kitchen. I returned them to store & exchanged for clear ones, the staff were very helpful, I am surprise they are still selling them based on the reviews.

Colour peels off
Bought these for my kids and they are an ideal size. However they are hand wash only which wasn't clear. Worse after only 2 weeks the colour has started to peel off them. As others have noted it is painted on. They are reasonably cheap but I won't buy again

Hand wash only
I bought these from the store, unboxed c.4 months ago. Today, one of them came out of the dishwasher with a big crack around the base. I came onto the website to order a replacement but noticed in the product info that it's hand wash only... I also found 2 other reviews noting that the glasses weren't made of coloured glass, but painted glass.. I took another look at the glass & they were right!! There were scratch marks I'd not noticed before. Shame as I really liked the teal glasses but I won't be replacing.

Not coloured glass
I saw these displayed in the store and liked the different colours. The size is ideal for kids, not too big.
The problem is they are not made from stained or coloured glass. They are made from a clear glass with the colour painted on. After a couple of weeks of light use, the colour has started to peel off. Not ideal for something that you would be drinking out of.
The glasses themselves are pretty solid and not likely to chip or break easily. I would stay well 'clear' (pun intended) of these and get the clear ones instead.
