Gareth and Glen,

would it worth buying that moser like vase for the mark on the base? As so much is unmarked.

Gareth,

What colour do you call sepia, it brings to mind the faded photo's of my late family that are dragged out at Christmas, and all looking as though they are awaiting the firing squad :lol: Why weren't they allowed to smile at least?

Regarding the marked piece I still feel that £60 is somewhat really excessive....the mark may well be of academic interest but in my opinion does not have the same credentials eg as a signature. I must stress however that this is my opinion only and not one representative of how any collecting market, forum or individual may view this.

Regarding your second point the easiest alternative reference I can think of is "brown" . If you have a look on the cloud glass website www.cloudglass.com you will see a section there that shows examples of the various cloud colours.

And Smiling. :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :) ....... probably not the done thing in those days and considered perhaps a vulgar habit of the working classes....
always great to see people smiling even in a world such as it is now.... can never be too much....smiles make poor people rich


Regards

Gareth - some good news and some bad news. Plus a correction. First of all, I think the bowl is not sepia, but is amber. My apologies. And now the bad news.....I don't know where the darned bowl is. I've hunted through a few boxes but it's not there. We have a lot of boxes - mostly Carnival, but lots of other stuff too.

Now the good news - I have found the photos. Hooray.

Now I will go through the Walther catalogues and see if I can find it.

Hi  Glen

As you quite rightly point out this is a piece of amber...Davidsons ... and if memory serves me well a series 732F bowl. Definately not Walther but I wonder what the W represents..... I'll have to ask around as see if any others have this and if theirs also carries this mark.
Very many thanks for digging out the photographs


Regards


Gareth

Glen,

Have thought and walked  away, mentally that is, and had to agree that it was a not want  (just a want for the mark) if I find a cheaper version then maybe.

Have now got to start on the mountain of ironing :cry:

Am seriously thinking of packing it un- ironed and just taking the iron with us,as it will all need re-doing when its unpacked :roll:

Just think in a weeks time I'll be doing it all again  :shock:

Barbara - for years I had a keyring with the phrase

Behind every successful woman is a huge pile of ironing


And I'm glad you've come to a decision re. the vase. My Patented Test has helped me on many occasions  :roll:

Hi All
I have maybe 6 bowls with the W on the base some are cloud glass some are plain colours both clear and satin finished, I have also seen more, to the best of my knowledge they are all made by G. Davidson.

I emailed Chris at Cloud glass with photos of a bowl and a close up of the W mark also Siegmar at Pressglas-korespondenz, both had not seen this.

On the vase with word Walther was it a Reg No as Walther took out a number of UK registations, sorry if we hijacked your topic, I did post this back in 2001/02 but we lost it all along with the message.
