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.

Thought this might be the Chance one, is the Orlic one Chance? I wish I'd kepped the Orlic one now after all the confusion lol

i'd have both culprits then  :no:

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.

A photo in the thread from Emmi of the ones talked about on Whitefriars.com I have one in aubergine marked Parker made in England with a diamond with a 'P' in on the base are we saying these are not connected to Parker as in the pens?

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.
