SOWERBY Volume III cd-rom now available

Announcing the third and final volume in the series of three "electronic books" from glass authors, Glen and Stephen Thistlewood

Sowerby's Ellison Glass Works: Volume Three - A Celebration of Sowerby

The final volume in this unique trilogy not only contains what is, to our knowledge, a full digital reproduction of Sowerby's Illustrated Pattern Book No. XI – 1885 but it also features a superb photographic compendium of Sowerby’s glass.


Sowerby's Illustrated Pattern Book No. XI - 1885
Comprising over 1700 items on 107 pages, this catalogue provides a truly amazing document that records the extraordinarily vast range of Sowerby's glass production during the period from 1885 to 1887. It further offers a fascinating insight into what they were offering to their British and overseas customers at that time.

Photographic Compendium of Sowerby’s Glass
An encyclopaedic presentation of Sowerby's Glass with a visual feast of 250 colour photographs and explanatory text, featuring over a century of the Ellison Glass Works' production. Many rare items as well as familiar shapes and patterns, in an astonishing range of colours, including Slag (Malachite), Carnival, Ivory Queen's Ware, Vitro-Porcelain, Flint, Opalescent, Vaseline and much more. Each photo is presented with its pattern/catalogue number (where known).

The CD-ROM will run on computers that use Microsoft Windows Operating Systems and is available only from the authors, Glen and Stephen Thistlewood.
The cost of the CD-Rom is £14.99 (pounds sterling) plus postage/packing
