Ah, that is interesting - I agree that's an earlier box, so maybe 1930s? I think the blue pattern of mine is 1950s.

Are these likely to have been made by Chance Bros?

I doubt it. It looks lampworked, and not something Chance ever did, so appears to be made by Regaid. I did wonder if it was borosilicate, in which case Chance might have supplied the tube.

It struck me last night that Michael colud have done with this a few (quite a few) years ago.
I had to work weekends sometimes, Michael would make dinner for us.
One Sunday afternoon, I had a desperate 'phone call to the lab. A little voice wailed;
"Sue, what do I do about chilli-up-the-nose?"

He could have put yoghurt up it if he'd had one of these!
Cheers, Sue (M)

This beggars the question; why did he put a chili up his nose? ;D

I've learned not to ask Michael questions like that, David.  :nogos:
