Description

SMOKED GLASS DECANTER BY DESIGNER RONALD STENNETT WILLSON IN THE 1950s

During the 1950s he started designing glass himself, in a Scandinavian style, with smooth clean lines, made in various glassworks (Bjorkshults, Ekenas, Strömbergshyttan & Johansfors), selling them through Wuidart. These were mainly simple forms: vases, pitchers and jugs, tankards, cruets and goblets (whorl), also vessels with indented sides.
Lemington Glassworks

R S-W collaborated in the UK with the Lemington Glassworks, which was then run by the General Electric Company (GEC),and Osram, using existing production methods. He designed various functional, thick bottomed Tumbler and Sherry glasses in 1959, in clear and harlequin sets, made at the Lemington Glassworks, he also produced vases, bowls and lidded jars, the complete range was very popular within the design press and he won the Design Award for his ‘Canberra’ vases, which were originally designed for P&O as vases for cabins, RSW designed all the glassware onboard.

He also designed for British Rail and Gilbey’s ( a range of glasses and carafes, well known as the Gilbey Glasses),also for the Carlton Tower Hotel in London, the ‘Tower Service’ which was made by Nazing in Hertfordshire and then later by King’s Lynn Glassworks.
