The Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Guild of Glaziers, or makers of Glass, the Company's forerunner, existed as early as 1328. It received a Royal Charter of incorporation in 1638. It is no longer a trade association of glass craftsmen, instead existing, along with a majority of Livery Companies, as a charitable body.

The original Glaziers Hall was burnt down during the Great Fire of London in 1666. The current Hall was acquired and refurbished in 1977. It is located on the south side of London Bridge and has spectacular views over the River Thames towards the City of London.

The Company ranks fifty-third in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Lucem Tuam Da Nobis Deo, Latin for O God, Give Us Your Light.
