What I need is one of those types of companies available now, so I can ring them and ask them to make the bits I need for my various shades that don't fit the various lamps I have  ::)...

Bernard,

Your comments were taken on board (by me) last time you pointed out you're concerns. I think that you quite right to be wary, yet it should also be noted that both Ackroyd & Best, and Hailwood & Ackroyd produced shades that required moulds to make them. Maybe not such a leap, but the cautious approach is very sensible.

Have you any similar thoughts about their production of cut, and art glass that could be relevant?

Thanks, Nigel  :)

Frank I'm a long time visitor to C Wray  :) but I had no idea I could ask them to get something made to fit a lamp?  Do they do that?

Hello All,

I've just been re-reading this thread because I needed to add something about my regular searches on the Internet for new mentions of anything to do with Hailware/Hailglass/Hailopal/Hailcris, etc. Consequently all the mentions so far I'm aware of, but thank you all for the help. Although, special thanks for Chris's reminder of the cranberry/ruby ash tray which I've now bought ;) :)

I noticed something that hadn't hit me before (apart froma typo):

Quote
Hi m  it's Hailware as in Halewood and Ackroyd.

Chris, that isn't right IMHO. It quite clearly says Hailglass, which, although from the same stable ain't the same thing as Hailware. Recent sight of adverts by Ackroyd and Best suggests that the two come from seperate eras of the same thing :)

A typo indeed Nigel, the reason I said Hailware and not Hailglass was because my search for Hailwood & Ackroyd   threw up about 6 items including a couple of lampshades like the one at Tooveys and described them thus ' Hailware' glass ceiling light so thinking maybe Lassco and the others maybe right and maybe Tooveys had slipped up  :-[

Not sure why it disappears  in the link it shows on the search? 7th one down on the google search

Chris,

If I wanted to be sarcastic then I would make sure you knew.....however I was merely referring to your spelling of Hailware - not Haleware as you put in your first post on this thread.

As for the information that I have just given in my last post about the difference between Hailglass and Hailware, I think you should understand that I have been researching this topic for some years and am in touch with the Hailwood family. The information I have given is hot-off-the-press. Perhaps I should leave inaccuracies, so that they proliferate for the future?

Nigel I'm not sure I understand your reply, although I know it wasn't directed at me.  I think Chris was just saying he was repeating what was in the Lassco ad and what they stated, and his embarrassed smiley was meant to indicate that  :)
Please don't leave inaccuracies - no one was questioning your information, Chris was just adding to the thread I thought from reading.
Chris, I can't tell from the Lassco ad why they would have used Hailware instead of Hailglass as they haven't put a pic of the writing as far as I could see, but the Tooveys lightshade I linked to clearly has written on it Hailglass, so given they are the same shade, I would think as I think you did, that Lassco probably got it wrong.
The gorgeous lights you linked to are marked Hailware.  So perhaps both pieces as Nigel says, belong to different era's in their production.
