oohh Angela and Colin please do share your recent finds! They sound fantastic!

Angela - So these patterns by "Davidson" were they made in both glass and paste porcelain then? I didn't know if that were possible or not?

I used to work quite a bit with ceramic molds made of plaster, using rubber bands to hold them together while you pour the liquid "slip" clay into them. I taught ceramics for about 5 years, when I was in college. Was great fun, to play around and learn a few things to! I just never knew if those molds would withstand hot glass to?

Chris - I'm not so sure that Xanax is that addictive? I know several folks that take it, and it doesn't seem to be a problem, so long as you don't take more than your supposed to. I know w/ pain meds that I'm on, it's a very "strict" schedule you must adhere to,  not only to avoid addiction, but also to avoid liver and other organ damage.  I think that is true of all pain meds - including OTC - Tylenol and Motrin. "Everything in moderation" as they say, I guess? But I'm sure happy to hear your Judy made it through the shopping trip! WTG!

Colin, Sorry to hear that you had to give up your fantastic collection. But, on the good side of things, now you can hunt for more! :)

Hiya Betty! How was your holiday? Our Shirley must be busy, Haven't seen any new finds recently. ( I might be having withdrawal symptoms, not seeing enough glass recently) LOL

I do have a "big ol box" of stuff for the antique mall I need to attend to, so I'll post some pics if I have anything pretty! ( I actually don't remember what I bought :)

Colin I just found my candlestick in Raymond Slacks book attributed to Davidson c.1885 it was in Black Vitro-Porcelain. It has the buttons on the base like one of mine. I knew I had seen it somewhere before.

I know the trinket set you have by Davidson lovely buy for £18 !! I have a cloud glass one.

Comment by Chris Pollock on July 7, 2014 at 12:28pm

Thanks Betty, she feels so bad about not being able to do anything and that I'm having to do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry but I don't mind doing it keeps me busy and away from sitting in front of the computer all day long. Colin, yes, I'm sure she'll take her off gradually it's like when I was getting off the Fentanol patches I was on for pain, too me awhile but I got off of them.

Comment by Betty Proper on July 7, 2014 at 8:39am

Chris,  It is great to hear that Judy is coming along!  May you both have a patient, promising and pleasant week!

Comment by Chris Pollock on July 6, 2014 at 8:44pm

Good idea Angela and Vicki, I'll see if I can get her to come back to the 'computer room'. She actually lasted the whole hour and a half or so grocery shopping with me this morning. I was really impressed. When she sees her Dr. Wednesday she's going to demand to be taken off the Xanax she found out last night that it's more addictive than Heron! I'm sure there are other drugs that can calm her down and I don't even know if that's really necessary anymore.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 6, 2014 at 3:24pm

Love the Candlesticks Angela - Rather odd that they don't exactly match? So, whom ever did make them must have done a second version or something, right? Still, gorgeous, especially anything with "dolphins" or anything sea related for me! I just love them! :)

That "Hirondelle" pattern has gotten me looking all over, at more of P. d'Davesn designs - I think I'm hooked Colin! All are so beautiful! It's difficult to say which is best or even narrow down some favorites - LOL

Chris - I'm glad to hear the blood pressure issue is improving, as well as the diabetes for Judy! That's excellent news! I like Angela's idea of having Judy shop a bit online. It's not the same of course, but one can always learn and study different types of glass and artists, just like "Davidson" that Angela has taught us about and "Lalique and d'Davesn" designs and patterns that Colin shared! "eye candy" for sure!

Stay cool Shirley - that's mighty hot temps you have there, wow! Our 4th turned out very nice indeed! The weather warmed up to mid-high 70's and after dark in our "raft off" the lake calmed right down. Like it was cooperating for us to enjoy the beautiful fireworks display! Everyone had a good time, and we headed for the island for the rest of the weekend. Always fun, and always good to see our "boater friends" :)

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! Looks like I've got a few new leads for sales. "back to work" tomorrow!

Happy Hunting Glass Hounds!

Thanks all they are very pretty and when placed either side of the mantlepiece you can't notice the colour difference. Chris glad to hear Judy is slowly improving...get her on Ebay. Browsing for glass there are still some bargains out the there I got these candlesticks on Ebay for £4. Also get her checking out all the links at the top of this page it always cheers me up when I can't get out and I have learnt so much.

Comment by Shirley Grundman on July 5, 2014 at 11:29pm

Angela, your Dolphin candle sticks are beautiful.  You sure find some nice things.

Comment by Chris Pollock on July 5, 2014 at 11:27am

Thanks so very much Mary, she's doing better but now with all the meds her BP in the morning is low. They're still working on getting them right. They also found a kidney stone while she was in the hospital now she has to go get that taken care of. She's doing good with her diabetes, they took her off the shot she was taking before each mean and only takes one a day for now. She wants to get out and go, go, go she hears the Good Will stores calling her but she tires too easily so we're still housebound. Of course I'm getting the itch to get out and find some new glass but that will have to wait.

Comment by Mary Wald on July 5, 2014 at 7:15am

Glass finds have been pretty scarce around here lately.  I simply have to live vicariously through Glass Hounds.  You have been a very busy, and fruitful bunch!  

Prayers for Judy!
