Title: Davidson #20 flower bowl
Post by: Cathy B on July 03, 2006, 09:59:45 AM
Hi everyone -
This is really a question for Chris Stewart.

I don't usually ask about values because I feel it's not appropriate; however, I'm needing to sell a few things to pay a few bills this month.

Chris, somewhere on your site you've listed the price a Davidson orange cloud #20 flower set went for in 2002. If one came without the plinth and block it might achieve a similar price now? Or have prices risen or dropped since then?

Thanks, and sorry for the impertinent question!

Hi Cathy,

Personally I'd say orange cloud has risen slightly over time but the trouble is it's so scarce it's hard to say for certain, although I suppose it really depends on the current market-mood. Less than 1,000 recorded so very collectable! 8)

Hi All,

I would have said that Orange cloud glass prices are lower now than in 2002. I used to automatically collect prices from Ebay, but they so frequently change the format of the pages I could no longer keep up.

Your No 20 bowl may struggle to reach £120. Unfortuantely the summer is not a good time to sell.

Cathy, please would you mind to show what could be on offer? Thank you!

Hi Pamela,

Here are pictures of the bowl in question. The top rim is about 10" or so in diameter, a bit more across the widest part, and is about 3.5" tall.

The trails are not well defined. I've tried to show them better here:

And here it is in a shotgun marriage with an Empire ware Saverly flower holder. The bowl's too big for her, but it's somewhere to put her that doesn't clash too badly.  :)
