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?
Glass Trinket Sets / Davidson 6283 or 8283.....?
« Last post by Eugénie on December 19, 2014, 03:54:54 PM »
I just found and bought a ring holder in amber cloud glass. I have this model  too in blue, pink, amber and "black" ( in fact it's deep deep purple) glass.  The dressing table sets 6283 and 8283 of Davidson are very simular but I  never saw a ring holder with those sets, just a kind of tray without the pin. Any idea wether those ring holders are Davidson at all...???

Well I am glad to have this ided as I have had one (although not opalescent) for at least a decade. Only info I ever had was from the International Perfume Bottle Collectors who said it was from the 60s, Czech imported to the U.S. in large quantity.
Germany / Glass Shard Sculpture on here in around Sept 2013... mystery solved!
« Last post by rosieposie on December 19, 2014, 03:22:44 PM »
In around September 2013, someone posted a picture of an interesting glass shard sculpture and asked if anyone knew the maker or origin of it
I captured the picture so that I could investigate it and see if I could find the maker, and have continued searching from time to time.  Today I found the answer,  It is the Snow Leopard Sculpture by Franklin Mint and clearly it is the base only and the Snow Leopard has either been removed or became detached.
I am enclosing a link to the Pinterest site where I saw the full sculpture and also a picture of the original post here on GMB.
I do not remember who the person was that posted the sculpture,  but whoever you were, I hope you see this and now know what it is. In the meantime, if you have already found out,  then I apologise for wasting your time. :)

That looks like a contemporary take on a slightly older design they had, (or perhaps it's a design that is still going). The shape is certainly newer than the design.
This design has been seen with paper labels, quite often two paper labels, one with a handwritten set of numbers, but nobody knows what the numbers mean.

Earlier pieces in this design have much smaller deep purple splodges to create the black background. The silver salts are often "painted on" in a straightish line around the middle, with big loopy bits.
It's one I like, I have a few pieces, but in earlier shapes.
This is not a Michael Harris design, sadly, I don't know whose it is.

Hi have you got back to the seller ?  try it because I am sure he wants to keep his reputation A ok , I believe he also looks into this forum , tell him of your concerns . At one time the letters were item description rather than maker or designer, Richard is an easy  going guy and very helpful .
