Lot 77OKRA GLASS Large PAPERWEIGHT IN THE FORM OF AN ELEPHANT. (Never Put Into Production,Was Offered To The Staff).
(The story of Okra and Station Glass like glass itself, diverse and fascinating. Okra was founded in 1979 by Richard Golding & Nicola Osbourne, this successful art glass studio experienced many changes throughout its history, from major expansion in the late 80's to being brought out and becoming part of a frontline manufacturing group in the late 90's by Moorcroft.)This partnership only lasted 4 years and is considered by many to be one of its saddest times.
Richard and Nicola managed to buy Okra back in 2001 and settled into some purpose built buildings in the grounds of their house in Wordsley. Sadly Nicola left the business in 2007 to pursue a career outside of the glass world and we wish her all the success in the world..
