'We are pleased to announce that Basil Loveridge has agreed to exhibit his extensive collection of Gray-Stan glass.  Gray-Stan was a small factory in London which existed from 1926 to 1936. The factory is now known mainly for its multi-coloured art glass similar to Monart.  The factory was started and run by Elizabeth Graydon-Stannus.

Basil became interested in collecting Gray-Stan glass after visiting the superb 1987 exhibition at Broadfield House Glass Museum entitled ‘British Glass Between the Wars’.

 

This will be the first time that this important collection has been exhibited and this may be the only opportunity that the public will have to see such a large display of Gray-Stan glass in one place.

 

Basil will also be standing at the fair in a selling capacity and will therefore be on hand to speak to visitors about his collection and to answer any questions they may have.'
