Chance Brothers business records
Chance Brothers & Company Limited was based in Smethwick and was one of Britain's great glass manufacturers.
Chance produced crown, sheet and rolled plate flat glass; a very thin glass for use in microscope slides; laboratory glass; ornamental coloured glass; decorative domestic glass; optical glass and perhaps most famously, lenses and apparatus for lighthouses all around the world.
The archive of the business is extensive, and many records, including those relating to staff and the famous lighthouse works, have been catalogued and can be searched on the black country history website.
