S. Belham & Co. (established 1865)


Company established by Stephen Belham (1827-91) in 1865 on Buckingham Palace Road in London. The firm made several stained glass windows in Wales to the design of J.P. Seddon, and then by Henry Murray (1852-1929), who may have subsequently acquired the business. Their work was noted for its use of coloured glass made by Jesse Rust from the 1870s.
