HISTORY & PAST COMMISSIONS | GRATTAN PARTNERS

HISTORY

The manufacture and structure of glass has fasinated man through the centuries. He always sought to enhance and beautify its form by embellishing its surface, sometimes with classically simple designs, others with incredibly intricate work.

Grattan Partners specializes in combining artistry with simplicity. The company started as a family business in 1977 following a request to engrave labels onto cosmetic bottles whilst frosting them for Saint Gobain, Givenchy and others. That was HM The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Year which was a tremendous launch pad and the first commission for the new company. The engraving was produced using the Silinkton Chemical engraving process, a unique process developed by the company. It brought in sand blasting/carving in 1988.

Over the years the Company has been commissioned to provide engraved glass for a number of Royal occasions, Rolls Royce 75th Anniversary, BT Share Launch in USA, Ryder Cup, First UK Papal Visit, 150th Anniversary of America’s Cup to name a few.
