Davidsons red cloud glass trinket bowl
« on: October 03, 2008, 08:59:57 PM »
This is my latest charity shop acquisition  :hiclp:

It is quite tatty looking as the paint has flaked off inside, but it isn't chipped at all as far as I can see.

The only other item of red cloud glass I have seen for sale is in completed items on a popular auction site, but that has been restored.  Would it be worth restoring this one ? (Looks to see if she has any red car spray paint - only joking!)

I'm quite pleased with this one :)

Janet — In my opinion red cloud in that condition should never be "restored".   Mess with it and you would probably find it unsaleable.   Lovely find.

Hi Bernard

That is my opinion too, although I was quite surprised to see a heavily restored (but at least declared) column vase go for £130.  I haven't been able to find any records of sales of red cloud glass on the most popular auction sites, except for that one example,  so I am really unsure of how to price this up to sell  :huh:

Has anyone seen any examples sell recently?
