Hi t'other Anne
Davidson's first made clear Chippendale as well as the coloured stuff. (Green and amber colours were made later). I collect Chippendale glass so yours is interesting for me.
(The bulk of mine hasn't yet been photographed and added to my gallery... I really must do this soon!!!)
This taken from Chris Stewart's Cloudglass website http://www.cloudglass.com/History.htm
is this info about Chippendale:
In 1930, Davidson started making 'Chippendale' Glass for the National Glass Company. Chippendale was first produced in America in 1907. Realising that this was a popular and successful line, Davidson bought the moulds, trademarks and sole manufacturing rights to the Chippendale range of glassware in 1933. They paid £3,000 for the moulds alone. Over the next 30 years they added to the styles and colours (emerald green and amber) in the Chippendale range.
Does the base of yours have the star burst pattern? (It looks like it doesn't from the pic but I can't quite tell.) Most unfooted Chippendale seems to have this... quite a few other glass makers made Chippendale-style designs so yours could be one of them (even, apparently, the Scandinavian firm Gullaskruf made a design like Chippendale! http://www.gullaskruv.se/jubileum/glas/nyfacett-salladiar.jpg
US Glass made Chippendale before Davidson's bought the moulds (I have the 1937 US Glass catalogue facsimile and a photocopy of the Davidson 1937 catalogue as well so can check designs in those.)
Some Chippendale pieces are marked Chippendale, some with the Krys-Tol mark, some as Krys-Tol Chippendale, some with the US monogram, and much of it not marked at all! :roll:
