    I managed to go back to my favourite market stall today, and bought the lovely uranium vaseline glass jug to go with my bowl. I had a long chat with the stall holder, and he had bought them in an auction with other items, and they were called American Milk glass, but I still think it is George Davidson Pearline Glass in the William and Mary Pattern. I have checked out American Glass and can't find anything remotely similar to this pattern there, but I am sure Tallcakes would be able to tell me?

      your stall holder is incorrect; and it would never be called milk glass, as this is considered Vaseline Opalescent glass. And you are correct to attribute these as Pearline.
      20thcenturyglass.com has a whole page devoted to Pearline and shows this form:

      It wasn't the stall holder that attributed it, it was the auction house! All the stall holder knew was that you didn't see it very often. It's a great stall in our indoor market, which is full of glass and china, and although he is quite knowledgeable about some things, he doesn't tend to check things out on the internet, and he will always knock a fair bit off the price, which are pretty fair anyway.

      on the similar American glass items; just google:
      Opalescent Glass Footed Creamer
      and you'll likely see some similar in quality and design...

      here's an example of America glass:

      Thanks Tallcakes for all the info. The reason I was doubting it was English Pearline Glass, was when I put my Sugar bowl on last week, and someone seemed to be suggesting it wasn't Davidson because it wasn't marked. but I think marks on glass are often a bit hit and miss?
    6. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      I'm not sure how consistent Davidson was at incorporating their marks. As molds get worn those marks are the first to show wear. Many American glass makers who used marks were not too consistent in always incorporating those marks.

      Looks like an impressive piece.

      Hi Glassgaga as you rightly say worn moulds etc plus the plunger going into mould in the milk jug is virtually impossible to read in such a narrow aperture but can be located by touch with perseverance
      registered design number for this pattern is 413701 14th July 1903 yr and is of peroid in both pieces
      hope this helps to clarify
    9. AdeleC AdeleC, 5 years ago
      I must admit I am a bit confused by glassgaga comments, because if they are not George Davidson, who made them? The pattern is very much a Davidson pattern, and I can't find anyone else who makes this pattern in these shapes. There is a sort of mark under the sugar bowl, but it's not possible to see what it is. I have taken pics but I don't seem to be able to replace a pic with another on my iPad, so it will have to wait till I get my laptop out tomorrow.

      After buying my new Pearline pieces I have had another look for the registration mark on this jug and found it down at the bottom inside the jug! It is no. 413701 which is George Davidson 1903.
