Object history
'Chippendale' glass was launched in 1907 in America and registered as a trademark by the Jefferson Glass Co. in 1911. It was imported into Britain by Charles Pratt's National Glass Co. C. 1930 Pratt purchased the moulds from America and had the glass made in Britain by Davidson. The moulds were purchased outright by Davidson in 1933.
