Are you looking for information on specific Australian companies?  Our resources covering Australian glass are fairly limited, although we do have some published books on Australian design and tableware for the late 19th and early 20th century.  We also have information on the development of the light bulb generally and specifically the manufacturing history of the ribbon machine.  Does any of this seem to be what you are looking for? Let me know!

 

 

Asker Response:

Thanks for your reply.

I am looking for information on the history of the ribbon machine in particular & if or when it was introduced to Australia.

I'm also interested in the companies Melbourne Glass Bottle Works, Felton, Grimwade & Co & Australian Glass Manufacturing (AGM).

Could I suggest a book for you collection on Australian glass manufacturing that may be of interest.....the information on very early colonial manufacturing is quite interesting.

Yes, thank you very much for the suggestion!! Any ideas for books/articles we should collect are extremely useful to us. I will look into what we might have on the Australian companies you listed and be back in touch.
