Title: Deco black glass fluted vases - ID = Davidson
Post by: oyemicanto on August 04, 2012, 12:16:51 PM
Hello everyone
I bought this pair of Art Deco black glass vases today at a local boot fair.
I have never seen anything like this before and have no clue as to maker?
Has anyone ever seen these vases before and I just wondered if anyone knew who made them please?
Thanks in advance

Hi Dinklepip
Thanks for your reply...I'm not an expert on Davidsons,the only thing I recognise of theirs is the cloud glass?
Did they do a range in black glass?
I bought them as I thought how unusual in black and they would look fab in my black and white bathroom lol

Hi Wayne
Ah yes there they are! I have never seen any davidsons catalogues and there's a vase there with frog that I have seen in green at a local centre so that's another mystery solved!
Thanks so much for showing me that!
