A Piece of Glass History from the Renowned Whitefriars Studio

If you're a collector of vintage glassware or simply appreciate the beauty of well-crafted pieces, you won't want to miss this stunning ruby textured bark vase designed by the talented Geoffrey Baxter for Whitefriars in the late 1960s. This vase is a true embodiment of the rich heritage and innovative techniques that made Whitefriars a pioneer in domestic glass manufacturing.

The Whitefriars Legacy

Whitefriars, also known as James Powell and Sons, was a renowned glass company in London, England, with roots dating back to the 17th century. Originally located near the River Thames in a former Carmelite monastery, the company earned its name from the white-robed monks who resided there, known as "Whitefriars." Under the Powell family's ownership from 1834 onwards, Whitefriars led the way in domestic glass manufacturing for over 150 years, producing exquisite pieces that combined innovative techniques with timeless designs. The company's smaller factory on Tudor Road in Wealdstone, Harrow, established in 1923, became a hub for creating some of their most iconic works, including the ruby textured bark vase we're featuring today.
