Saunders & Co. (1869-1880)

Stained glass firm founded by William Gualbert Saunders. Saunders was briefly associated with Henry Holiday in the 1860s, and made stained glass for the Gothic Revival architect William Burges in the 1870s. Among the designers of the firm were Fred Weekes (1833-93) and Horatio Walter Lonsdale (1844-1919). After 1880 the firm was taken over by William Worrall.
