Many people spend years collecting a particular pattern. Suddenly it is no longer available, either because the manufacturer has gone out of business or because the line is discontinued. If you are in this position, it may be worthwhile contacting the following companies:
Discontinued Designs - If this company cannot help you, you could directly approach one of the crystal manufacturers listed below:
Staffordshire Crystal - This is run by two former Webb Corbett employees, so they may be able to help with Webb Corbett patterns as well as other patterns.
Tudor Crystal - Tudor may be able to help with old Thomas Webb patterns as there is a historical link between the two firm, as well as Tudor patterns and patterns by other companies.
Waterford Crystal Ltd - Waterford may also be able to help with Stuart patterns, as Stuart Crystal has been part of the Waterford Wedgewood group since 1996. They also own Edinburgh Crystal, who owned Thomas Webb.
