Selection of Whitefriars table glasses. Harry Powell became interested in eighteenth-century galsses in the 1880s. Whitefriars and the other firms interpreted the old techniques in their own individual ways to meet demand. Powell's refined skill produced glasses that were distinctly contemporary in their claritty, refinement, balance and lightness. Table glasses like these were made untill the 1930s.
1880 AD - 1890 AD
