Davidson Identification Guide

Identifying pressed glass is often difficult as most pieces are unmarked and very few of the manufacturers catalogues survive. Some Davidson glass carries the Lion trademark, but this was not used after 1890. Some other pieces will have the registered design number, but Davidson registered comparatively few designs and often if a new mould was produced the design number was not put in the new mould. Fortunately a few Davison catalogues survive and these are provide vital information for the collector.

The pages in this section are intended to form an identification guide from the early Victorian glass to the very last examples Davidson made under Abrahams. As images of new pieces become available we will be adding them to this identification guide.
