See p.132 Chance Expressions for the full story of The Swing!

The other plate (small writing is Royal Air Force Museum) is probably Chance, or Fiesta Glass, but is a later manufacture. Post-1970?

Chance Additions: I realised recently that I have published six books this year, which is no mean feat. Two new books are also scheduled for 2011 - one of which will be of great interest to glass collectors! - but both are quite large...

Naturally this does impact on my own research, but I have got the book almost finished. Even so, there are still a couple of unanswered questions: these may get cleared up in time, but may not get included in the book so will probably be published on the web site. (I just hate to leave loose threads, but recognise I have to complete the book soon).

The new glass book is of a horticultural nature but describes the long and fascinating history of the British bulb vase. As usual with my books, it will be heavily illustrated and will serve as a collectors' guide, as well as describing how to put the vases to use.

Written by Patricia and edited (provisionally) by Christine (both of this parish, so another GMB collaboration!), it is the culmination of many years research. Even as a non-gardener myself, I am finding it engrossing: seeing all these different bulbs growing is a wonder - and some really strange oddities.

Somebody probably stuck the 'negative' on the wrong way round so they left it like that,how many people would recognise a Fragonard painting anyway right or wrong way round :24:

As these were transfers they would have been stuck to the underside of the plate and therefore in reverse - a ceramic plate would have been topmost, of course.  :usd: :)

Keith,  I'm proud to say I recognised it straight away  :angel: ....I believe it is called The Swing. 
Of course, David,  it makes sense now you explain it....I have only seen transfer prints being applied on Pottery or China,  so I was comparing with that.
