Vaseline Mini Basket - Davidson Pearline? ID = Greener
« on: March 12, 2006, 11:50:48 AM »
Another piece purchased last weekend.  I can't find a reg. number on it.  Is it  English?  It doesn't look American to me.  It is 5.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 2.75 inches tall.

I think it may be Greener, if so it's a lucky find because they didn't make much pearline. Have a look here at one in plain vaseline - click on the vaseline glass link http://www.theglassman.co.uk/

Christine -  Thank you!  I think you are right.  It looks like the Greener basket.

Is the coloration called Primrose?

In the US we would call it topaz opalescent or vaseline opalescent  :lol:

Here we call it primrose pearline, topaz isn't often used as a colour and when it is tends to be a brownish yellow.

Christine is a little faster on the reply than me tonight (there was some good TV on).  Your basket is indeed Greener.  The Rd. # is 113896, registered on Nov. 15, 1888.  I have seen the basket in both opalescent and non-opalescent versions in this size.  It was also made in a much larger bowl, that came with a lid.  The big one reminded me of a small soup tureen, about 10 inches across the top, and measured about 7 or 8 inches in height.  I have only seen that one in vaseline without the opalescent treatment.
