very desireable looking piece Keith, one of the nicest looking plates  -  would it have originally have had a label?   Bet you're as chuffed as I was finding a Ruby Quilt bowl recently.    However, apart from the Balloon Trays :) don't seem to get much in the way of good Chance pieces down here.

Thanks for the replies,you'd think I'd have shed loads of the stuff considering I live about 3 miles from what's left of the factory,although this year I've seen more than ever before :huh:

having collected Chance and Fiesta for couple of years or so, I had initially invested heavily and supported the plastics industry by purchasing trillions of plate stands.  On reflection this leads to disharmony with one's mate in the house, and I was told to remove them all  -  mind you I did wonder whether she should go rather than the plates  -  but her cooking is exceptional ;)   So I now have a five draw mega sized chest of draws in one of the garden sheds, and my entire Chance/Fiesta collection now languishes there in the dark and unloved - plate after plate piled high with toilet tissue between each piece.   Oh, the price we pay for cohabitation ;D

Would love to see a quilt plate let alone get one,it's the intaglio 'hanky' vases I'm searching for;must be lucky as my OH has the same passion for glass,although not quite so bad,My camera collection has had to go back into store to make space for the glass and the sci-fi books could be next.

Anne  -  I'm looking for a woman with 100 yards of free plate rail space in her dining room  -  any takers ;D
Craig - to paraphrase Kipling  "a woman is just a woman, but a good piece of glass is forever (well nearly the same, anyway) - however, the cook may have to go even yet ;).
o.k then Keith, the attached is just to make you a little green - I think from memory something like 8.5/8 inches in dia., from a flea market in Brighton (Sussex - UK).
