There is a record of Sowerby Glassworks in Gateshead, North East of England as early as 1807, but very little is known about the glass they produced. We do know that the company had an art glass workshop from 1870 to around 1888. They made high quality, hand-blown, Venetian-style glass and initially employed workers brought from Italy. Sowerby's high quality pressed glass that is best know today. They made a vast array of designs, styles, and products in pressed glass over the hundred years from the 1870's to 1972. During the years 1876 to 1888 Sowerby reproduced a  range of the best art designs of the period, and they produced it in large volumes. In 1882 one of Sowerbv's four glassworks was Sowerby's Ellison Street Glassworks, and it was recorded as the largest pressed glass operation in the world employing nearly a thousand men.
