Look for T.C.Barker's 'The Glassmakers', pub. Weidenfeld & Nicholson, as this covers the history of Pilkington from 1826-1976 including the period you require and mentions of Chance Brothers inevitably crop up. Also my book, but it's not out yet :wink:

Email me if you'd like me to offer more advice.

:roll: A2A show nothing at all not even the ones that I know are in Tyne and Wear Archive, the problem is not everything is electronicaly  recorded yet, so they are probably lurking some where in a local archive and I will only find them on a card search.  I was hoping some one else may have already used them and be able to point me in the right direction, as they are frequently referenced in old books but I just dont know where they got them from.  Yes I already have the Pilkington Book which is interesting thank you.  I have done British Museum /Copec searches and all the web searches I can think of.

They are out there some where but where?  
Thanks Christine

David E:

Are you specifically looking for information relating to pressed glass, as mentioned in your profile, or an overall view of the glass industry?

I do go to Himley Hall (Broadfield House archives) on a regular basis so can ask there if this helps. If there are any particular publications, BH may just have them although the museum is more geared towards Stourbridge glass.
