Glass Trinket Sets / Re: Davidson 6283 or 8283.....?
« Last post by Anne on December 19, 2014, 10:33:03 PM »
Oh Eugénie, how interesting! I have seen these in colours but never in cloud before.

It does look like a 283 pattern piece, doesn't it, but as far as I can see, there was no 283 ringholder made, so I am at a loss!  I wonder if Chris Stewart of the Davidson / Cloud Glass site can help us? Perhaps it was a special order for one retail customer... ?

What diameter are they please? It would be useful to compare with the size of the 283 pintray which is 3" diameter (76mm).

Chris has, on his website, a number of unknown cloud glass makers,  one of which made a candlestick very similar to (but a slightly different size) the Davidson 283 one...  I wonder if that might be a clue?

We had this on the Board back in July 2005  -,2007.msg13761.html#msg13761  -  but the tinypics have gone so useful to add some new ones.

Unmarked, although believe many pieces from this designer are signed, and attribution for this one taken from Vigier & Pina (Smoke & Ice - page 110) and Jackson (20th Century Factory Glass - page 107).

This vase is 6.5" (maximum) with the other Board piece at 8.5" and the book examples appearing to both be 10.5".           The horizontal optic ribbing gives great effect of fish and net looking as though they're in water, and the mitres of the fish giving a sort of 3D effect.

Germany / Re: Crystal Geometric Structure etch marked FM

During all this searching I did find out that the FM etched mark is definately Franklin Mint and definately not Fare Marcolin, so just to assure you Gareth ( Morgan48) , the piece that you saw sold as Fare Marcolin was in fact German made Franklin Mint.

There are a lot of pieces of glass that look a bit like very fancy Wine Bottle Coasters with ice like sides or lage Snow Crystals, that are so often sold as Fare Marcolin Konstglas because they have this etched FM logo. 

It has become urban myth and therefor 'truth', but is in fact incorrect.

thanks for all the good info, I'l keep doing some searching.
Hope you have more success in this than I have, for the last year and half I've been looking into RB'y studio and art glass, so far I've got one designer and they seem to have disappeared, ::) ;D ;D

Given this has been such a successful pattern (still in production) I'm surprised I can find very little information about it.

Does anyone know the designer and date?
