waterstones
« on: February 06, 2007, 08:09:32 PM »
I am trying to find details on a company called waterstones as far as I know who were glassmakers who left Wood Bros to set up on their own. I am trying to find the location of the company and when it produced glass and if it is still in production any help would be appreciated   Alan
