Chance Brothers & Co.In 1822 Robert Lucas Chance bought the glassworks in Smethwick from Joseph Stock and Thomas and Philip Palmer. He was joined by John Hartley and his brother William, but after John Hartley's sons left the partnership after their father's death, the firm became Chance Brothers & Co. in 1836. In 1851 the firm supplied the glass for Crystal Palace. They made coloured glass from the later 1830s and set up a stained glass studio. This studio closed in the mid-1860s, after which their artists set up on their own, among them Samuel Evans and Thomas William Camm, who established Camm Bros with his brothers.
