Is this Davidsons Pearline Glass or not?
« on: May 14, 2006, 06:55:50 PM »
Hi
I brought these from a lady at a Carboot as I'm wanting to start collecting glass items.
The lady said these were by davidson and were from a collection called pearline.
Was she having me on? And could anyone else give me an idea on age or further details?

Please view them here:

Thanks in advance

Nicci

Yes, it is Davidson's Blue Pearline. It may have a Registered Design Number moulded onto the glass - the number should be 217752. It was registered on 6th September 1893. Davidson was a renowned British company located in Tyneside.

The pattern was called "Prince William" by the US writer William Heacock.

What a lovely buy! Congratulations. You couldn't hope to start glass collecting in a better way.

While I was writing my answer, Tigerchips posted. Sorry to be superfluous!

Oops, sorry Glen.  :oops:

Oooo no, Tigerchips. Don't say sorry! I didn't mean it like that.  :oops: It was just a bit funny as I sounded like an echo. I wouldn't have posted if your message had been there when I began to write. I was checking up Heacock's "Glass Collector" journals where he set out his choice of names for the pearline range, and also getting the date for the RD number. So my fingers weren't fast enough doing the typing.  :lol:

I guess twice the info is better than no info at all.  :lol:

I should add that I also LOVE Davidson's Pearline. We've been collecting it for many years now and have some very unusual shapes. We have both blue and yellow (Primrose).

And I have never found any in either a charity shop or a boot sale (where's the sob sob emoticon.....my kingdom for a sob sob emoticon).

I picked this up from the carboot and I paid £10 not sure if its a good price though?  :?:

I was concerned they were modern pieces!

But I've now found the Rd numbers inside the bottoms!

I'm sooo excited, hopefully I can carry on finding lovely items!

I love the colours and texture they're a fantastic pair and I'm really chuffed  :lol:
