Founded in 1963 by Charles Collis, a direct selling industry pioneer, Princess House’s primary purpose was to provide an opportunity for women to become financially and personally independent at a time when women had few career options. The road to independence was paved by the company’s unique offering of beautiful handblown, cut-glass crystal ware and collectibles and the flexibility it offered consultants through its direct selling party plan model.
Once Princess House threw its first party, Collis and the “Crystal Ladies,” as Princess House consultants were soon known, never looked back. The company made its mark with the introduction of its signature Princess Heritage® collection in 1965. By 1969, Princess House had grown to over 1,000 consultants and a best kept secret in the direct selling industry was on its way. See "Company Overview". Princess House Official Website.
