Bagley Glass: A short explanation
Bagley Glass started out as bottle-makers in 1871 in Knottingley (south-east of Leeds), Northern England. In 1912 they opened a new department which they called The Crystal Glass Company which branched out into crystal and pressed glass. They produced very little if any true lead crystal glass, and that only during their first two years. But in the 1920's and 1930's and after the war (after 1945) they were major manufacturers of art deco pressed glass, continuing until 1975. The company was taken over a number of times, and today, after extensive modernisation, the site makes glass jars and perfume bottles.

Under the management of Stanley and Percy Bagley from the mid-1930's until the late 1950's, the company produced some excellent designs like the art deco jug and clock on the left. The jug is "Sunburst" pattern number 3072 (from their catalogue) produced in 1939; and the clock is "Bamboo" pattern number 3007, made from 1935 until the mid 1950s.

Most Bagley designs were made in huge numbers, with clear or matt satin finishes, in amber, pastel blue, pastel green, rose pink, amethyst, yellow, and clear glass. They were marketed under the name Crystaltynt. Bagley also produced jade glass and an opaque black they called Jetique, and after the war (in the late 1940's) they added Crystopal, an opaque coloured glass.

Some half dozen designs were commissioned from the London designer Alexander Hardie Williamson, including the leaf vase (registration number 798844, made in 1934) and the marine bowl (registration 798843 also 1934). These registration numbers are sometimes marked in the moulding on the glass, and sometimes omitted.

The third edition of the book Bagley Glass has information on all the Bagley Glass patterns, with colour photographs, catalogues, registration numbers, dates, and company history. If you collect Bagley Glass or if you trade in glass, it would be a good investment. Click here to read more.
