scavo â€” Phoenix
heat-resistant glass by The British Heat Resisting Glass Co., initially Lodge Road*, Birmingham, then Loxdale Road, Bilston. Formed in 1934 by a group of ex-Chance employees following Chance's abandonment of Orlak
heat-resistant glass at the end of 1933. Designed by architect Raymond McGrath in consultation with Elizabeth Craig, the food author.
Looks to me sandblasted rather than acid-etched, but I can't be certain.
New to me â€” I wasn't previously aware of a Phoenix
1953 Coronation souvenir.
I recognised the pattern and then sourced from Dodsworth, BGbtW
, item 245, p.82. See also p.37 and Encill, Chance Expressions
* â€” also Walsh's address. Did Walsh provide them with a home and glassmaking facilities while they were setting up in Bilston?
