Amber posy bowl with frog - on plinth.

(1/3) > >>

Anne E.B.:
This is another amber find on my recent trip to Falmouth.  I'm really changing my mind about the colour amber, having fallen in love with my Sowerby water set (thanks once more to Ivo and Glen for help given on that one :lol: ).   I've got to say, this is beautifully made and is in mint condition.   The bowl is really elegant and so tactile and I can't keep my hands off it. :oops:  :roll:

The bowl is unmarked, but the frog has MADE IN ENGLAND and what looks like letters and numbers on the base, but I cannot make these out.  The plinth also has MADE IN ENGLAND and what looks like NO 4 on the base.  I presume the plinth is the original one for the bowl, as it sits so well on it.

Is this another Sowerby piece and how old could it possibly be?

Many thanks as always,
Anne E.B.

Glen:
Looks like Davidson's, Anne. I think (but this is not my area) it is their 1910 pattern. Along with their plinth and flower holder, most likely.

Chris (of the Cloud Glass) website or Gareth, will be more help to you I am sure.

Hi Anne

A George Davidson piece from the 1910 suite,,, BD1910 I think is the actual number...... oddly enough more often seen in a variety of cloud glass colours both pre and post WW11

Wow - that was a quick response!

Many thanks Gareth and Glen.
 
I checked out the link Glen, and spotted it.  It appears to have been produced from 1910 up until 1965 patt.1910SD (made in amber, blue, purple, green, orange, topaz-briar).  Its survived well, and is in far better condition than me! :wink:

Is this one less common Gareth than the cloud glass colours?

Anne  E.B. :shock:

Hi Anne

SD.... I knew it was something D ..... in fact 1910BD  is a real clunky bog stadard piece.
From what I've seen Anne it would appear to be less common.... but nevertheless not likely to fetch anywhere near as much...the black base is probably the most saleable part of the trio..... really nice condition though


Regards


Gareth
