« on: December 05, 2011, 08:00:17 PM »
Hi Can anyone help identify this Set of Dishes :huh:
I can only think it is Carnival Glass or Depression Glass...
But I think I am wrong on this guess  :-[

No marks on any of the items... :huh:

It's neither. It was made by George Davidson. It's the 269 pattern and was made from 1908 until the early 1970s. Is the base rim of the dishes flat and ground or rounded and straight out of a mould?

I mean the outer rim of the base: the bit the bowl rests on.

Sorry.
The Base Rim is flat.
What does this mean?

If it's ground flat, then it means it was produced before the plant was automated. Probably something like pre-1950s. Doesn't make them worth any more, just narrows the time frame a bit.
