Glen — Wonderful.   It's new to me!   Is it the 6", 8", or 10"?

Bernard, it's 8". I meant to put that on the webpage, so I've added it now. I've also added a second page with pics taken against a white background so that you can see the yellowness of the vase. It's wonderful how as soon as it's against a black background the colour changes, chameleon like. Anyhow, less chat and more action, here's the second lot of pics. Don't forget to click on that >> by the Yahoo red logo to get rid of the advertising menu and open up the entire screen.

Hi All,

They also made the 279 10" version in Uranium Glass. I think the only other examples of 1920s Davidson Uranuium I have seen have been in the 695 and 269 patterns

Chris just mentioned Suite 269 by Davidson, and I happen to have a piece of that in vaseline/uranium, so thought I would post the photo for all.

Hi All
Here is another Davidson piece in vaseline, Rg No 413701 14 july 1903, I know not 1920s but I believe one of Davidson's longest running pattern.
This often called William and Mary (Bill Heacock)

The 269 Davidson pattern... is this the one sometimes referred to as blackberry prunt? I have a wavy edged dish on a chrome stand in this pattern (in green, not vaseline) and my mother has a plate in it in blue.

Hi Anne
269 suite is Rg No 533040 18 Nov 1908 and was in continuous production until early 1970s.

I have some in my collection came in pink green blue amber clear satin finish and clear in crome fittings etc

Have a look at Chris & Val Stwert Clody glass site under G Davidson Registerations has a photo of a Purple Cloud Glass piece.

Here is a link to a fruit set not the best photo this is in Uranium green.

Tony, so it was Bill Heacock invented those ***** names for pearline patterns, just to force people to buy his book.    I suspected it but wasn't sure.   Clever but totally unnecessary as his books otherwise are superb reference works.   Please, what is the title?
