Large handkerchief vase + 2 others

David - any thoughts on this one please?  It's 5 and a half inches from base to tip of point, with a thin band of white around top and white inside.  This was bought with two others which both measure 4".

Another success!

The first is a very scarce model: all the milk glass ones are scarce, adn teh first ever produced by Chance, but are more often seen at 7-in. tall. The 5½-in. models (nearer 6-in. I think?) are quite sought after :clap:

The other two are fairly common patterns.

Yellow: is Bandel, Type-2

Maroon: Polka-dot pattern but this colour is fairly uncommon. There is also a 'Chocolate' colour: I call these Choc & Cream as the background colour of these is slightly creamier :D

Yours does look maroon, but it is hard to tell unless they are side-by-side.

Yippydoo ;D Thanks David ;)  I won't tell you what I had to resort to to get all three clean - particularly the large yellow.  You'd be horrified if you knew BUT it worked >:D  Della knows. I think you'd also be shocked if you knew how much I paid for them too... teehee ;D

I'll check on the polka-dot one again.   It looks really maroon in the picture although I must admit I thought it looked brown ('chocolate').  I'll get a second opinion.  Its one of those colours I have difficulty with, along with navy and black.

Well, they are quite tough, but avoid a wire brush and bleach ;)

I have noted a Choc & Cream in Polka-dot unless my dodgy eyes mistook them. I also have a 'maroon' one and thought I had both colours to compare, but you might be able to tell by comparing the white background.

In all likelihood, the two colours were probably the result of changing to a different batch of paint, rather than a deliberate attempt to create another colour, however the Gingham models are quite different because the stripes go in opposite directions!

Posted is a photo that's as clear as mud (or chocolate)

THAT  is a very very clear photograph David, and I am off to change the description on my chocolate-that-now-turns-out-to-be-maroon gingham....I can't tell you how long I hummed and ha'd over which colour and it seems that I still got it wrong.... I didn't know about the direction of the stripes! 

Thank you very much!!

Thanks for the picture David - it's really helpful. Mine is now definitely chocolate.  Something strange happened to the colour when it was placed next to the yellow one - and I don't suppose the black background helped either ::)

Glad to see I'm not the only one Lynne ;)

Just wished I could find both colours (choc and maroon) of polka-dot: they are both very dark, but I'm wondering if they are simply the same and I'm mistaken?

David - if you have a moment, would you mind checking out my handkerchief vase for me, in case I have made yet another error - I have just noticed on your Chance website that you say that the chocolate gingham has been seen with the stripes the same way....

I have put a link in the Marketplace section.

thanks!

I would call that maroon, although it does look a little like chocolate (milk, as opposed to continental :)). The other Gingham (which I call Choc & Cream) is darker and has vertical stripes.
