Whitefriars Glass

The firm of James Powell and Sons, also known as Whitefriars Glass, were English glassmakers from the 17 th. century. During the 1880s - the Arts and Crafts period - the company worked closely with architects and designers such as T.G.Jackson, Edward Burne-Jones, William De Morgan, Philip Webb and William Morris. In the post war period of the 1950s Geoffrey Baxter designed for the company the iconic range of textured vases including the 'Drunken Bricklayer' vase that was to become so popular in the 1960s.
