In the 1970s, Ravenhead was in its hey-day. It was the largest maker of table glass in the UK and was exporting to over 100 countries, producing 200 million glasses per year. During this time, leading designers created much-loved ranges such as Siesta, Barmaster, Elegance, White Fire, Apollo & Solar. In 1973, Ravenhead produced the well-known blue Vicks pots and Milk of Magnesia bottles for the pharmaceutical industry.
Thanks to Ravenhead’s first TV advertising campaign in 1972, its popularity grew and items such as the best-selling White Fire range were commonly requested as wedding gifts and remarkable sales followed.
