Stevens & Williams

The history of Stevens & Williams glass works is long and complex.  Rather than try to summarize the history, I will refer you to a very detailed chronology researched by:

Pottery Gazette Diary - 1888

As with several glass houses that Clarke commissioned to produce his fairy lamps, Stevens and Williams produced a broad range of styles and colors, many of which are documented in their design books.  Following are a few examples, I suspect there may be more yet to be documented.

The following examples are courtesy of "Fairy Lamps - Elegance in Candle Lighting" by Ruf, the Undocumented Fairy Lamp Collection submitted by former members of the Fairy Lamp Club and by personal and private collections.  

The caption "Ruf - xxx" refers to the reference "Fairy Lamps - Elegance in Candle Lighting" by Ruf.  The "U-xxx" refers to the Undocumented fairy lamp collection.
