Richardson of Stourbridge

English company founded c.1830 by Thomas Webb, and the Richardson brothers, renowned in the late 19th century, until about 1906, for its high quality coloured 'cameo' or 'cased' glass, and clear glass etched with naturalistic designs. They made chandelier prisms like Ford later made motor cars. Their prisms were used by many other makers.
