Chance or (No Chance)
« on: March 18, 2008, 10:14:23 PM »
Hi Memebers
                  Would these handkerchiefs i found today be by chance bros? if so when and is there a name for the different patterns and colours, the large one is 7ins to the tip of the handkerchief, 9ins wide where they turn in on them selfs, i have put the picture's of the small one's with this post so there are not 3 post's going at the same time, about handkerchiefs.

The small ones are 4is in hight to the tips and 4.5ins wide, being that they are both the same measurements i presume that they are made in a mould? how many colours did they come in,

Hi Steve,

Might I recommend David's fabulous book............ Chance Expressions, which is really easy to buy here: http://www.chanceglass.net/pages/index.html
It is well worth investing in, and not expensive either  ;D
You can read reviews on his book here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,19525.0.html
It really is worth investing in a few good glassy books  ;)
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

.......but, until you get a couple of books, Steve:
No.1 Gingham, introduced in 1978.
No.2 Cordon, introduced in 1961.
No.3 Polka Dot, introduced in 1974.

All info available in the above mentioned book......  :D ;D ;)

Steve you'd be astounded how many variations there are. In the book David does a chart with all the size and colour variations that were made - if you had one of each you'd need to find lots more shelf space! :) (I'll second Della's recommendation to buy David's book too - as it covers so much, not just the hankie vases, but also all the slumped and pressed glass production - hundreds of pieces are identified and it will really get you clued up what to look out for from Chance.)

Thanks both.

The 7in. model is also quite scarce.

Hi David
           I picked up those 3 hankie vases at local charity shop nice buy,only £5.25 for all of them, while out today i came across this hankie didn,t think it was worth starting another post, can you remember about a wk ago i said i saw a black one, well this is it.

Solid black with white dot's spaced evenly round the vase, it stand 5ins to the tip of the top, and is 6.1/4 ins at the wide'st point, a little bit thicker than the other ones, who would have made this hankie? look like i am collecting handkychiefs  now,
                                                                                                                                     steve

As mentioned in an earlier post, these are Bagley Jetique in the Polka-dot pattern. These are not necessarily "slumped glass", as they were forced over a mould, so I'm not sure if they qualify for inclusion here. Much of Bagley is pressed glass.

OK, I look forward to receiving the order. However, I would refrain from buying just any old handkerchief vase as some do not have a fantastic reselling price. The book will show you which are the best ones to look out for.
