Well.  I would like a Helennic giraffe carafe, so perchance you see one,  let me know  ;D....in the meantime....'Bon Chance'!!

See,  I have been doing my homework,  and I was right and I would never have thought you were serious Paul!.....Keith don't you think  considering I don't even collect this, it was a pretty good deduction!!?

Ooops, we crossed Kieth!!  Your Grandad might have made this....that is awesome!  Wow!!

Rosie, I have a calypto and a hellenic and a swirl but not the night sky pattern yet - still looking for that one! The hellenic one doesn't have those great figures on it - it's just all over vine leaves - mine has a very tiny damage on the lip but for £1 it was worth picking up for its display value. :).

I also have a calypto lemonade jug which is a seriously weighty thing! And tons of calypto drinking glasses of various shapes, in fact I have enough calypto to set a whole table with - plates, bowls, glasses, jugs and serving dishes, candlesticks and more!!! I keep saying I'll have to dig it all out of the boxes and do a table setting and take pics!  :smg:

Keith, I'd not realised that your grandpa and his brother were Chance workers.... now I understand your fascination with Chance even more! :kissy:

I had an almost complete Hellenic dinner service.  I sold it with all the shed contents when I moved last year.  I just had too much to take with me..probably sold it for about £6.
