Davidsons? A quatrefoil shaped dish (Japanese)
« on: March 21, 2006, 10:13:20 PM »
I think this might be Davidsons. There's an identical shaped one on http://cloudglass.com/Gallerypostwar.htm

If it's Davidsons, does this make it Blue Pearline? I can't think what else to call it.  :?

Hi,
    I'm not sure your dish is by Davidson. As far as I am aware they never made these dishes in anything other than plain colours (smoke, midnight blue etc).

Thanks, Perhaps it's something more recent. I thought it was brand new when I first saw it but after seeing it on the site I thought it might be Davidsons.

It measures nearly 6 inches from corner to corner.

I've just noticed that the blue stuff in the middle is actually white and the blue glass just turns it blue.

I had a similar looking one in the past which I had seen attributed to Murano.  I'll see if I can still find an image of it....

Thanks, perhaps these are also related to some of the cloud style glass I keep seeing. These also have white bits in them.

Sasaki glass, Japan made both the four- and three lobed pieces.
Still dunno about the cloudy stuff - it just reeks too much of air freshener...
