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, [Pattern Book no. 1] by Philip Stourbridge Pargeter.
We also have two blog posts, Portland-mania! and Curious and Curiouser: Surprising Finds from the Rakow Library, that provides information about the Portland Vase reproductions. Attached below is a selected bibliography of resources about Pargeter and English cameo glass.
