Most Common Pressed Glass Fruit Bowl by Chance
« on: September 06, 2009, 03:55:59 PM »
In my search for Cato and Orlak by Chance Glass . One pattern came out on top and you see it everywhere . Look like there is always one in every High Street and car boot.
That is Lotus Fruit Bowl.

Odd that you should say that Ming, but it's one design I don't have, nor do I see many around. I see more Spiderweb than any up here in Cumbria.

There are a lot Lotus Bowl around here. Only cost either 50p or £1 each normally. But not coloured. At least 5 to 1 when compare with Spiderweb or Britannia.

No Lotus here either in Cheshire. Don't think I've ever seen it. That might mean that most of it was sold from the factory shop, given where you are Ming.

Here is an idea. How about me buying all the Lotus fruit bowls here and ship them to the North and made a million.  Ha! Ha!

Saw another Lotus fruit bowl this weekend for a pound. We should rename the pattern " Rabbit" for you know what reason.
