I agree with Patrick, his grandfather was also involved with Dunne- Cooke at Whitefriars and they came up with some great designs,D C also designed for a couple of major Swedish companies, but there is little info on him,I am sure at least one of you will put that right.

Hi John, Patrick,

I couldn't resist responding to your last comment! An article on Dunne Cooke will be published in the next Journal of the Glass Association. I found a small archive of material including some original DC design drawings, an original Elfverson catalogue from the mid 1930's (all made by Strombergsyttan and mostly designed by Gerda) and twenty pieces of glass including the DC designs in the V&A. On of the huge cut pieces is monographed DC and one of the books is deadicated to DC from Gerda Stromberg. The glass is being exhibited at the Country Seat from 23rd Nov to 8th Dec.

Enjoy!

Graham

hi Graham, Thanks for that info, I was going to try to get to the exhibition and have been to all the previous ones. They always make a tremendous effort and anyone who can make the trip will not be disappointed.
 Just to put the records straight............ It was my Father Edmond Hogan that worked with Dunne-Cooke .
 Best wishes  Patrick.

Yes sorry Patrick got my Hogans mixed up.I believe It has been suggested that Dunne Cooke was the inspiration for the Whitefriars knobbly streaky range,i bought my first piece of Whitefriars Dunne Cooke glass fifteen years ago, several glass experts said no thats not Whitefriars,i still have five pieces,. one of them is a large fully signed and numbered bowl.I look forward to the exhibition its well overdue and who better to do it than The Country Seat.

It can be told now... ;)

Peter Tysoe: Studio glass artist, but revamped the Chance range in 1970. Designs include Ocean Spray and Gold Spray, Honeysuckle and, most significantly, the alluring Psychedelic pattern. Peter was also responsible for the new shapes and logo, plus Glacier and Grey Dawn ranges.

Robert Barrington: Cannot be confirmed for sure (and it may never be), but was quite probably involved, if not instrumental, in first creating the Chance handkerchief vase and may be the person behind Swirl :clap: Was definitely responsible for the Hellenic design.
