Ash Tray that bought me here (a 2nd one)
« on: January 17, 2011, 08:01:59 PM »
I cant find the original topic but I saw another similar ash tray to the 'Orlic' one that bought me here. A fellow dealer had it so I bought it especialy for this forum.
Its very similar and looks almost like jade. The base looks like it says 'Parker' & has a 'P' in a diamond. I cant remember the exact I'd of the orlic one now so maybe we should start again?  :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp:

That was designed by Robert Goodden, made by Chance for Parker and is probably uranium glass.

To clarify Christine's response, the 'Parker' here is not the company making fountain pens (see p.30 Chance Expressions). Yes, I'm pretty sure the Orlik one is Chance - it follows very similar design lines.

I believe there was some chat about Parker ashtrays on W/Fs .com , not just the W/Fs ones .

The name Parker (for Parker Beacon) features on many 'smokerama' items (mainly ashtrays), as it was quite a prolific company.

I got a few peoples backs up, I called the WF comunity a dangerous & evil cult, it was a few years ago. A few people didnt take kindly to my joke. It had started over a bubble base vase with a label, a lot of flaming but I got fed up & I lowered myself to fowl language & never went back. In the end one of the guys having a go at my comment ended up buying it off me (I doubt he told the rest)  :24:
I do find the WF comunity very serious about there chosen glass, but when you have this level of pashon I supose it can get like that & I expect other hobyists are the same.
