A History of the Firm of Chance Brothers & Co., Glass and Alkali Manufacturers. by J. F. Chance Foreword by Michael Cable


This is the eighth and last in a series of books which cover the period from 1612 to 1926. These were written by acknowledged European authorities and allow modern readers to gain some insight into understanding of glass technology at the times when these books were written.
Chance Brothers produced just about every form of glass from scientific equipment to tableware. They made the glass for the Crystal Palace of the Great Exhibition in 1851 but the company also made some 2300 lanterns for lighthouses around the world. This book covers the company history to 1919 with a postscript from January 1926.
