It would be an injustice for me to plagerize what others have done so well. The history of Thomas Webb glass production has been researched and documented by many notable authors and researchers. I have selected the "Glass Encyclopedia" as one of those sources to briefly capture the history of Thomas Webb & Sons, along with a historical chronology from Grace's Guide to British Industrial History.
It would be difficult or nearly impossible to document all the fairy lamps produced by Thomas Webb and Sons. While many have been documented in Clarke's cataloges and advertisements, there remain many that we are uncertain about. Rather than to speculate, I have chosen to focus on the Burmese production of Clarke's fairy lamps.
It is with some degree of certainty that Thomas Webb & Sons was the sole producer of Clarke's fairy lamps. While some persist in attributing some of the Burmese production of fairy lamps to Mount Washington, there is no evidence that Mount Washington produced any fairy lamps, much less Burmese fairy lamps. I would greatly welcome any evidence to the contrary.
Following are numerous models of Clarke's fairy lamps commissioned by Samuel Clarke and documented in his catalogs and advertisements. While Clarke never acknowledged Thomas Webb as the source of these designs in either his catalog or advertisements, many are acid embossed with the Thomas Webb and Sons trademark along with Clarke's acid embossed trademark.
