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  ;)

Della:

.......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 ;)

Gilead:
Cheers Della.
                  Just saw some on ebay, did'nt realize there were so many different types and colours also size's

Anne:
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.)
