Green vase, is this Davidson?
« on: February 19, 2012, 06:25:47 PM »
Hi there, I'm about to buy this vase but am wondering who it was made by.....if anyone could tell me urgently as it will make a difference to how much I'm prepared to pay!

Mod: Auction image removed as per board policy. See lower down the topic for the link to the item.

Sorry, I can't help with id, but I'm sure somebody else can.
Welcome to the board.  :hi:

There might be a problem with the image you've posted - it looks as if you''ve taken it from a listing?
You can post a link to the whole auction, but there are serious copyright problems with you posting somebody else's image on its own.

I see the auction is over.  Were you the winning bidder?  I don't know if it's Davidson, but if it is, it's not a common one.  Nice looking vase anyway.

It doesn't look like any Davidson piece I've seen so far. I'm not even convinced it's English to be honest. I'd be looking more towards Germany or Czechoslovakia I think, but that's just my gut feeling...

It's certainly not a design I've seen before - I want to know, is it uranium? ;D

Apologies for the belated reply - yes I was the winning bidder, and I had asked the seller for a buy now price but I had to go out and didn't want to miss out so accepted (perhaps stupidly!) the buy now without asking any questions. 

I'm new to collecting deco glass, my grandmother died recently and left me a collection of bagley glass which peaked my interest in the deco period and since then I've been buying the odd inexpensive piece, but my knowledge is definitely at beginner level!

Thank you very much,  that gives me a direction to start looking in :)

It hasn't arrived yet so I'm not sure......hoping I haven't bought a dud reproduction piece! I guess all that should matter is whether I like the shape or not but I'll be disappointed if it isn't a genuine deco piece.

I'll report when it arrives!
