Jacobean in blue - Davidson or Inwald?
« on: May 06, 2008, 09:52:51 PM »
Found this today, it's absolutely perfect, a gorgeous blue colour, has JACOBEAN REGD. on the side of the foot.  Would it be a Davidson or an Inwald  piece?

Inwald, imho. Here's a tip....turn the piece upside down and check out the base. If it has a polished mirror-shiny grind (with a recessed star in this instance) then you can put money on it being Inwald.

Glen, yes it has a very shiny bottom and the recessed star. The shine is very.... glasslike! (I couldn't think of another word there!!! ::))  Thanks you, I appreciate the tip. 

Do you know when the blue ones were made please? They don't seem to be very common at all... I see a lot of clear Jacobean but this is the first blue piece I've come across.

I have rarely seen blue Inwald glass. I know of a Nola (aka Pompéi) vase in the same blue as yours - but that's the only one I recall at the moment. I can confirm that blue is indicated (very rarely) as a colour made by Inwald 1928-1935. I haven't looked beyond that time frame.

Please don't take my response here to be the definitive answer  :). I am sure when Marcus has time he can add more.

Gosh, so it sounds like it's a good find then Glen? :)  I just love the colour - it's so vibrant!

Many thank again, and I'll patiently await Marcus' input - I know he's very busy at the moment.

A while I saw a couple of Jacobean tumblers in this colour; at the time I didn't buy because they were quite flea-bitten. If my memory serves correctly they had the mirror polished bases Glen refers to. In the whole of my glass hunting, I don't recall seeing any other Jacobean in blue.

Hi,

Davidson did make some Jacobean styles in coloured glass - Amber, Emerald, Blue and Rose - but only in limited quantities. You do frequently find these jugs in blue. I have one and the colour is different from a Davidson blue.

As this does not have the registered design number on it just Jacobean Regd, could it be post war machine made Jacobean?

I agree with Glen, this probably not a Davidson example.

Regards

Dear Anne, congrats on your find, which obviously is gusted also as Jakobean by all others here - GREAT!
I have given up regarding this pattern long ago - Walther, Brockwitz, Radeberg, Plötz, Schwepnitz, Jobling, Sowerby, since lately we know Poland, Streit, Stölzle, Schreiber - who else? Today I would say: they ALL produced it in any shape - right?

Thanks for the info Chris, now how do I tell if it's a machine made one please? :)

Pamela, it's so frustrating isn't it?  It's the same with the Chippendale lookalikes - I found loads in your catalogues (thank you for them again)  so am trying to match up my pieces now with the catalogues... it's like bottling fog! ;D
