thanks Bernard.               Haven't I seen/read somewhere recently that the William Morris Gallery at Walthamstow has had a recent substantial make-over, or something similar??      Being keen on the Arts & Crafts and Morris, not sure why I've never been, and it's probably only about 40 miles distant.   

Understand your comments about the confusion in Jackson.             By way of possible explanation for what may seem to glass collectors as a less than clear statement, we might perhaps remember that Leslie Jackson's book was intended as a guide for the Powell/Whitefriars public exhibition in Manchester and London.           In view of the massive Morris/Arts & Crafts interest of recent decades, Peter Rose may well have assumed, that many people would automatically know that Webb was the architect of Morris' Red House in Bexleyheath.    He would probably be correct also in assuming that few visitors to a public exhibition on glass, would have any knowledge of a glasshouse of the same name, in Stourbridge.       
In view of this situation, Peter Rose may well have considered it un-necessary to clarify his statement.            Of course, it may just as easily have simply been that as Webb had nothing to do with Stourbridge, then Rose didn't consider anyone could be confused :)
