Davidson Cat and Dog Sugar Bowl
« on: January 15, 2006, 09:54:14 PM »
I saw this sugar bowl  listed on ebay.I have been told that it is in  Chiarenza and Slater's Milk Glass Book and they say it is  by George Davidson, C1885, called Cat and Dog andalso states in that book  it's "known only to us in chalky white (milk glass)." This being clear glass I am really curious to its origin and age.

Julie -

This is what Chiarenza says about the piece

Quote
Made by George Davidson, it is shown as No. 26 in a circa 1885 catalog. See O. N., X:4, Sept 1995, pp. 6-7 for a fuller discussion and reprints of sketches from the Davison catalog, including the matching creamer.

Known to us only in a chalky white.  Height overall 5 1/2"; the base alone is 3 3/4" high and 4 1/2" wide. Rare.


O.N. stand for Opaque News - the quaterly publication of the National Milk Glass Collectors Society

I don't know when they say only known to them in chalky white, if they mean the only milk glass color or if they mean the only color of glass
 :roll:

Edite to add: Chiarenza calls it Dog and Cat, not Cat and Dog.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

Hi,
Davidson sold this as a covered sugar and an open sugar (no lid). It is often found in slag glass.

We have two items in this pattern. We believe that one is the Davidson piece and the other is the Inwald one.

One we have had for many years - it's a clear glass cream jug that we found in the UK, and we believe it is Davidson. The other piece is the covered sugar. It is clear glass with selective gilding. We found it in Vienna and our feeling is that it is the Inwald version. No proof beyond location of "find". We had filed both items away for future study.
