Open sugar US, UK or Europe?

Great research, Christine.  I am glad I could point you in the right direction.

Colonial or Colonial Panel is a collective name for the panel pressed glass pieces.  Almost every company in the US made some version of these.  I think I mentioned that in an earlier thread on Chippendale which you can see from those links is part of the Colonial Panel collective series.

It is also interesting that Indiana used the term "our Peerless" since Peerless is the name Heisey gave to one of their Colonial panel lines.

Hi Anne,

Apologies for taking so long to reply. The 2505 trinket tray does have an even star pattern, which is unlike most other examples of Chippendale. It is also not a very Chippendale like style!!

Checking our research notes, it looks like the 2505 tray was the only example of Chippendale made by Davidson with an even star base.

Thanks Chris, that is interesting - I wonder why that one was made this way?

I've noted it in my Chippendale catalogue to remind me as well. Much appreciate your help once more. :)

Dear Mods
Please insert these pictures and move to US glass. Photobucket has been very naughty and changed the way things work, i.e., the thumbnails no longer have a distinct location
