Stevens & Williams of Stourbridge, England, made many types of glass, including layered, etched, cameo, and art glass, between the 1830s and 1930s. Some pieces are signed S & W. Notable engravers at the Stevens & Williams manufactory include: Joshua Hodgetts (1858 -1933) - Hodgetts was a amateur botanist who used his knowledge to cover vases and objects with naturalistic motifs. Many of his works also have an oriental emphasis following the trend of the day for Chinoiserie. Frederick Carder (1864-1963) Worked at Stevens & Williams 1881-1902 known for museum quality works in the Art Nouveau style. (Also founded Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York in 1903). William Fritsche (working 1870’s onwards) Bohemian born glass engraver. Worked for Thomas Webb & Sons and engraved items in Classical style, particularly on the rock crystal body.

This lovely cased glass tazza, circa 1900, is a classic piece of art glass from that era. The round ruffled top with fold-over back is a beautiful shade of deep pink or rose. The underside, elegant baluster standard and round base is alabaster in color. The base shows a nicely formed pontil. The top measures 6 1/4" across, the base 3 3/4" across and 4 1/4" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; one tiny, pin-head flaw at the bottom of one ruffle, which I think is a popped bubble during the cooling process. See photo.
