What do you think David.
Hmm, this is a surprise! Lotus was never a great success in 1948, so conversely it should be collectable, but still doesn't attract much interest. This is probably because it is not a terribly inspirational pattern (designed by Robert Goodden of Spiderweb fame) and was probably attempting to popularise the modernist style.
But this bowl is quite strange. Because the making of moulds was a highly specialised task and something the company would not proceed with unless there was some assurance of success. So I wonder why we haven't seen more - could it be that perhaps we just didn't recognise it?
Great find if it is Chance, but I would love to examine it more carefully! :hiclp:
As usual, Ming, I would love to include a photo in Chance Additions...
BTW, my web site now has two freely downloadable PDFs - one is p.86/87 from Chance Expressions, the other is Errata & Updates for the same. Both are 300dpi print versions.
