Historical Syphons Donated to British Glass Foundation

The British Soft Drinks Association, which is the national body representing the collective interests of UK soft drinks manufacturers has gifted to the British Glass Foundation their collection of historic glass soda siphons and bottles.

The collection comprises about 20 soda siphons and 50 glass and ceramic bottles.  Jill Ardagh, Director General of the British Soft Drinks Association in London, said “We are just about to move premises and sadly will no longer have room for our collection of historic glass soda siphons and bottles.  I am very pleased that we have found a good home for the collection and it is heartening to know that the collection can find a new lease of life in both safe and appreciative hands”.

Graham Fisher MBE, Trustee of the British Glass Foundation, the charity set up to protect the glass collections at Broadfield House Glass Museum, said that he was hoping that in the future the Foundation will be able to arrange an exhibition to show off the collection.  Graham is a keen waterways and glass expert and also well known as an author and radio presenter on 102.5 FM The Bridge Radio.
