Stevens & Williams was an English glass company located in Stourbridge, established in 1776 under the name of Honeybourne.[1]

Its most notable cameo glass dated from the 1880s when the studio was under the direction of John Northwood. He was also known for the very unusual and complex Moss agate glass vases.

Other engravers at the Stevens & Williams company included Joshua Hodgetts (1858 -1933). Frederick Carder (1864-1963) worked at Stevens & Williams between 1881-1902. Carder also founded Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York in 1903.
