Pattern number: 2631 Chevron Bowl. Circa 1920's- 1939.
Produced by the Sowerby Glassworks of Gateshead, England.
Established in 1760 by Joseph Sowerby. The small glassworks outgrew it's original location & moved in 1852. The new factory, overseen by Joseph’s nephew John, was the first of its kind in England, devoted specifically the manufacture of pressed glass items. Known as Sowerby’s Ellison Glassworks, it contained it's own mould shop & by 1882, employed 1000 people; making it one of the largest glass factories in the world.
During this era, Sowerby’s branched out into running an ‘art glass’ studio, creating works inspired by Egyptian, Roman & Venetian glass styles. During the 1920s, the works hit it's peak both in design & output.
The more intricate designs were produced in 'Carnival Glass' & now highly prized by collectors. Most of the best examples were made by reusing old cast iron moulds that dated back to the 1880's. Sowerby soon found itself on par with the great glassworks of the USA, Belgium, France, Germany & Bohemia. The company went into receivership & closed in 1957.
