Davidson's Blue Pearline or something else?
« on: March 12, 2007, 05:06:19 PM »
Just downloaded a pic. which is showing on the Glass Queries Page, but I don't know how to put a link here to it.  Help please Anne or Max :D.  Tried to put it in my Album also, but it's gone awol ???.

Anyway, when it re-surfaces, it's a 4½" high creamer.  It has a fan and diamond pattern and looks very like Davidson's Blue Pearline.  Any ideas what it is please and how old it might be?

TIA :D
Thanks too for any help with the pic.  I'm getting there ... slowly ;)

Absolutely! Davidson and gorgeous. I have a cupboard full of this pattern in a very wide range of shapes, including a few weird ones.

A big thank you Anne and Tigger :hug:  Davidson's "Richelieu" it is then.

It's older than I thought!  

Glen - your collection must look fantastic 8).  This is my first piece of Pearline. The colour is amazing.  It's had a little restoration work on the base, but you can't see it if its turned to the back, and it only cost a (whispering... ;D) pound! YAY!  I'm intrigued as to what the weird ones are ;D

Hi Anne  :) we've got handled baskets, stemmed sugars and comports, different shaped plates / bowls, a tiny one handled "nappy", celery, cream jugs and my favourite pieces - the lidded biscuit barrel with a fan shaped finial, two massive salad bowls and the really weird one - a huge trefoil shaped dish (for hors d'oeuvres I think) with a handle (it's about 11" or so across).

We have been collecting this pattern for about 20 years.  :D
