Percival Vickers

Percival & Yates of the British and Foreign Flint Glass Works, Jersey St, Manchester registered one of the first Manchester designs in 1847. The firm was established in 1844 and was first known as Percival & Yates Glass Manufacturers. When the firm was well established, a Mr. Vickers joined, and the firm became known as Percival Yates & Vickers. Some time in the 1870's, Yates left, and the firm then became known as Percival Vickers & Co Ltd.

Little is known about the factory, except for a few pattern sheets. The firm concentrated on general tableware, and produced many attractive designs, including the horizontal and vertical mitres pattern, and designs with clear patterns on a frosted background.

The firm ceased trading in 1914.
