In the past I've tried to to find information on William Swingewood and his history and from reading it seems Frank had also been looking into this at various points. So I've grouped together all the current information on the board on William Swingewood for future reference.

Threads on William Swingewood:

Intro from Paul whose Great Grandad was Bill Swingewood,26270.msg233768.html#msg233768,14041.msg290716.html#msg290716

‘Hi all,
With regard to Bill Swingewood and the confusion that seems to be around. There were indeed two William Henry Swingewood's.
William Henry Swingewood b1916 (My Grandfather) and William Henry Swingewood b1893 (My Great Grandfather)
Some lamp work was made up until recently by my uncle - Colin Swingewood. - My one regret in life is not sitting with my Grandfather with his lamp at his studio in the back garden in Stourbridge.
I hope that clears up any confusion.
Regards – Paul’,52826.msg300040.html#msg300040,51178.msg290082.html#msg290082

I found another set of birds of paradise recently the fourth set now found locally and his Grandson who claims to run a museum dedicated to his Grandad contacted me through ebay stating they were not made by his family, although he could not provide me with any bona fide examples of what was, I would like to see more as I'm sure I have more unidentified ones, I'm wondering if they were Arculus?.
