If you are interested in learning more about the Portland Vase and its history - and the Pargeter copy - our library has a wealth of information available to you. For example, we microfilmed the following pattern book when it was held by Stuart Crystal:

Pargeter, Philip Stourbridge, England
[ Pattern Book no. 1]. Stourbridge Philip Pargeter, Redhouse Glassworks 1872-1876. 249 p.
Lacks p. 1-9. -- Film only; title on film "Stuart Crystal encapsulated sheets"; original at Stuart & Sons, Stourbridge. -- Full size designs for cut, etched, engraved and furnace decorated glassware. Names of decorators given, e.g., Northwood, Zinke. Ware pattern nos. 154-1431. Contains blank outline for Portland vase.
Includes: novelties, cameo

Attached is a selected bibliography of resources about Pargeter and English cameo glass.
