Webb Corbett Ltd was set up in 1897 by Herbert Webb and Thomas Webb III, grandsons of Thomas Webb, and Harry Corbett (no, not that one!) under the name Thomas Webb & Corbett Ltd, changing to Webb Corbett Ltd. in 1930. It was always a seperate operation from Thomas Webb & Sons.
Webb Corbett's factory was the White House Glass Works at Wordsley, near to Stourbridge, which they took over from B & J Richardson.
They were taken over by Royal Doulton in 1969, the Webb Corbett name continuing in use until 1986. After then the glass was made under the name 'Royal Doulton Crystal'.

This glass is tiny but beautifully proportioned, barely an inch and a half high, so the bowl is about the size of a bottle's screw-cap. The acid-etched mark under the foot was in use from 1930-1947.
