To be sold General Sale 24th April
Whitefriars glassworks was first known as James Powell and Sons in the Whitefriars area of London from 1834. It was a family run firm with James Powell's three sons being involved in the glass making business. Originally producing stained glass, industrial glass and scientific glass the glassworks began making tableware during the 1860's.
In 1923 the glassworks moved to Middlesex and the heyday of design and production began. It was Geoffrey Baxter who joined Whitefriars in 1954 and launched the textured glass range from 1967 which saw the appearance of the bark vase, banjo vase and the Drunken Bricklayer vase in many colours and shapes. The Whitefriars factory closed in 1980.
