Davidson's glass Pressed imitation cut glass produced by George Davidson & Co. of Gateshead from the late 19th to early 20th century. The factory made glass to look like porcelain (vitro-porcelain) usually in opaque white or blue. It also made a marbled glass often called 'slag glass' because of the impurities added. The 'pearline' range has a rim of opalescent glass and is usually pale blue or primrose.
