Simone — I'm sure that your plate is Jacobean, made by Davidson for Clayton Mayers.   I've had a few pieces of Davidson-made Jacobean through my hands, all superb quality like your plate, and never marked with the Reg. No.   Just look at that base star — it shouts Davidson.   Somewhere I recall reading that it dates from about 1932, possibly in Stewart & Stewart.

Some years ago I had two scarce Davidson Jacobean flower sets in stock, one in blue and the other in green, both with matching domes, together with a green Chippendale set, again with a matching dome.   I put them all out at a glass fair, and by the time we had finished setting up we had sold all three!

At present, the only example of Davidson Jacobean I have in stock is a magnificent large decanter.   It takes some explaining as it is pressed glass.    The stopper breaks the usual rule for Jacobean & Chippendale as it has been expertly ground in.   For smaller items like salad oils, a ground-in stopper is usually an indication of some modern TLC, best avoided.

Could your magnificent decanter be a Josef Inwald "Jacobean" (Lord) piece, Bernard?

It could be, Glen, but I would have expected it to have carried the Reg. No. if it was.   Am I being to simplistic, Glen?   ... and the chunky quality looks and feels right for Davidson.

I couldn't be certain, Bernard. Not every piece made by Inwald has an impressed RD as far as I am aware. My rule of thumb is to check the base - if it is mirror shiny and highly polished, then I'd put money on it being Inwald.
