Greener's Glass from
The Glass Encyclopedia

A short explanation of Greener's Glass:

In 1858 Henry Greener and James Angus started glass-making at the Wear Flint Glass Works in Sunderland, North East England. The company was known as Angus and Greener until Angus died in 1869, when the name was changed to Greener. In the second half of the nineteenth century this was one of the major English glassworks, and they made a wide range of tableware, novelties, and household glassware. It can be identified by its registration marks and, from 1975 onwards, by the Greener trade marks.

Henry Greener died in 1882, and the business ran into financial difficulties a few years later. In 1885 a new trademark was registered, and a year later the company was sold to its principle creditor, James Augustus Jobling, a Newcastle upon Tyne industrialist. The company continued with the name Greener until 1921, when it was re-named James A Jobling and Company. At that time it was entering a new era making PYREX and, in the 1930's, high quality pressed art glass. Eventually they became part of the USA company Corning and continue to this day making specialist commercial glass (not glassware).


If you collect glass made by Greener, its a good idea to keep an eye on what's for sale on ebay

English Pressed Glass by Raymond Slack (Oct 1987).Still an excellent reference book on glass factories in the late 19th century. Particularly good coverage of Sowerby, Davidson, Greener, Heppell, Moore and the Manchester area glassworks. Includes a table of registration numbers.
British Glass 1800-1914, by Charles R. Hajdamach, (1991). Has an interesting section on Greeners glass. This is the first of his two excellent books, this one covering all the major glassworks of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Collector's Guide to Jobling 1930's Decorative Glass (Dec 1985) by John Baker and Kate Crowe. Very much the best book for identifying Joblings glass.
The Identification of English Pressed Glass, 1842-1908 by Jenny Thompson (Jan 1990).
Nineteenth Century British Glass by Hugh Wakefield (1982). Good covereage of the early 19th C glass including cut crystal, Victorian coloured glass, engraved glass but only a short piece about pressed glass.
Victorian Decorative Glass 1850-1914, by Mervyn Gulliver, (2002).
