Wow Max, Thats gorgeous! They certainly have an appeal of their own. Years ago I was never attracted to any of this kind of glass. Nothing pressed at all. Now they seem to have become beautiful to me all of a sudden :)

Yup, they're cracks, you can tell by the silvery reflection,  :cry:. We should be so lucky only to be cracked at 119

Oh well..I didnt have high hopes of it being worth anything much other than being interesting. I guess at least I can say I have a true antique. I wish it could talk! Id love to know what its been used for and where its been for 119 years. :)

You'll find that happens Selina.  It's part of learning and appreciating and I've had the same experience as you with this.  I can't even say definitely that I'll never learn to love frilly victorian glass...it could happen!   ;) ;D

Mmmm, Greener - I didn't know that but am interested because I have a 5" saucer (uncoloured: flint) in an identical pattern.  All of this dotty Victorian glass is amazingly reflective - if you haven't yet discovered that, try placing it somewhere the sun or a light strikes it.  The effect is wonderful.

Pamela — Your plate is identical to the one Max has, so, surprisingly, it's also Davidson.  ::)

Don't know about the candlestick.   It doesn't look familiar.   What is the design on the base?

Nice to see the German language examples.   I presume the last one is "GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD" in German.

I was browsing around your site before we went on holiday, and found several pieces that I could help you with, including a nice example of Wood Bros.   Unfortunately I got distracted.   I will have another go when I have half a mo'.
