No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

I can't see the pattern on your tray, the picture is too small and it needs to be on a plain dark background but if it is like these here then it is Chance

Sounds more like one of the Unionglas ones then but a bigger picture would definitely help.

OK now you have got the hang of uploading larger images we need to be able to see the content as well... on your camera do you have a macro mode? It's usually shown as a little flower symbol, and if you set the camera to that you can focus quite close up without it going fuzzy. You need to pretty much fill the screen with the image so we can see what it is but using the normal camera setting you have to stand too far away to make it focus and it comes out too small, so try the macro and see how that works.  This is the sort of size and effect you want to achieve:

Yay! Well done Kieran, that's fine.  :hiclp:

I *think* this design is one of the Spiegelunion patterns. David Encill's book Chance Expressions shows a plate with the same pattern in a different colour on a fluted plate shape. Christine may be able to add more as I think it was her plate illustrated in the book.

That's what we decided from the castellated fluting on mine, which was the same as in Speigelunion adverts
