Slumped 'Mail Coach' Dish - Chance?
« on: June 27, 2007, 07:30:02 PM »
I just bought this:

Gilded rim, opal flashed on the top surface. The shape seems like Chance?

Perhaps part of a series, transport/post-office history?

As ever, grateful for any help!

Although I did respond privately to Robbo about this one.

Yes, almost certainly Chance: diamond shape and opal-flashed glass is a clincher. The transfer derives from the 'Carriages of the 18th & 19th Century' series, of which I now have have photo examples of all six designs. I'll publish these for the update pages (a free download to book purchasers only).
