All looks genuine to me, if rather naff. The frosted Spiderweb is hard to find. ;D Is the base stuck on with sort of polyfilla stuff? If so that's genuine

No, it's stuck on with glue that has gone yellow. It's all over the place.

Now here's a thing...

Have just been reading a Council of Industrial Design publication from 1947 (Good Design Good Business by John Gloag) and there's a picture of three Spiderweb bowls.

Only, the caption describes them as "salad dishes in Maxine glass made by Chance Brothers of Smethwick".

So I guess Max was always destined to be a Chancer...  ;)
