Product details Falcon Glassworks, Blackfriars

Falcon Glassworks, Blackfriars


View of a glass works furnace in operation with glassworkers shaping and blowing molten glass. The view shows a Stourbridge brick dome and is based upon Apsley Pellatt & Company's Falcon Glassworks at Holland Street, Blackfriars, London. The scientist Michael Faraday FRS (1791-1867) used the factory to aid in his researches into optical glass during the 1830s. Figure from page 56 of the book Curiosities of glass making with details of the processes and productions of ancient and modern ornamental glass manufacture by Apsley Pellatt (David Bogue, London, 1849). Inscribed below: "Elevation of the furnaces, and interior view of the Glass-house and working operations." Apsley Pellatt (1791-1863) was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the Royal Society in 1851. He was a British glassware manufacturer in the family company of Pellatt and Green, later renamed Apsley Pellatt & Co. He was MP for Southwark.

Original: woodcut engraving. 1849
