A. K. Nicholson Stained Glass Studios (1890sā€“1960s)

Stained glass manufacturers. Archibald Keighley Nicholson (1867-1937) was the brother of Charles Nicholson (1867-1949), a pupil of J. D. Sedding and partner of Henry Wilson, and of Sydney Nicholson, founder of the Royal School of Church Music. A.K. Nicholson also worked with Henry Wilson, but in the late 1890s set up his own stained glass studio in London. He was embedded in the Arts and Crafts traditions, and kept close personal control over all the work which left his studio. He served on the council of the British Society of Master Glass Painters in the 1920s.

A.K. Nicholson's studio continued into the 1960s under his name, and run by G.E.R. Smith who designed their windows after 1937. Smith had been a pupil of Edward Frampton, and in his obituary of Frampton, A.L. Wilkinson noted other apprentices to Frampton that went to work at Nicholson's studio, including Nicholson's chief glazier, Samuel Maynard, and James Mien. The studio continued into the 1960s after the death of G.E.R. Smith under Margaret Pawle and Hew Lewis Pawle.
