The original design was developed and manufactured in the USA under the 'Krys-tol' brand. Davidsons manufactured it in the UK and bought the moulds, trademarks and UK sole manufacturing rights to the collection in 1933. The Chippendale range was hugely popular and very successful in both the States and the UK but was a flop in Australia! Davidson developed the range into a huge collection including cake stands, dishes, salts, jugs and bowls of every size and shape, they also introduced two colours so you will sometimes see the more popular Chippendale shapes in amber or green glass. Davidsons continued to manufacture the Art Deco inspired glass until the early 1960's.
