Pressed Glass

The prominent 19th and 20th century manufacturers in this area included Davidson & Sowerby in Gateshead, Greener in Sunderland, Heppell in Newcastle and Edward Moore in South Shields amongst others.
They produced wide ranges of pressed glass products and different manufacturers are often identifiable by their designs, factory or registration marks. Sadly none of these manufacturers exist today but much of the old pressed glass we have on offer is their legacy.
