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 suppose the Parker Pen company could have sourced ashtrays, but in this instance the Parker script logo has definitely been identified with Parker Beacon. Also worth mentioning that Parker Pens is a US company and Parker Beacon is a London-based company dealing mainly with smoking paraphenalia and more likely to have dealt with Chance Brothers.

In this posting on the Orlik thread: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,19637.msg113441.html#msg113441

It does state that Orlik is the English pipe company and then: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,19637.msg113445.html#msg113445

This shows the Orlik (English pipe company) logo which is difficult to argue against - almost identical to the one embossed on the base of the Chance ashtray.

Thats the thred that was linked to me on Ebay when selling the Orlik ash tray. It was diffrent in a few ways to this one but not hugely. Mainly the glass with it being blue & clear. But there are a few small shape diffrences, its a shame I've not got it now.

I cant remember who bought it but there a GMB user & I think started the thread. I'll have a look in a sec. :thup:

I was the one who directed you to the GMB thread (it is the same one) and also successfully bid for it on eBay.  ;)

Ahh ok thanks for that  ;D, I had to sell it before my partner used it any more. Someone else linked me to it as well prior to me listing it, though it was via another antiques or glass forum, I think it might of been Wayne. Thats where I might of got the tobbaco idea from.

 You did direct me right here cutting out the middle man so to speak. :wsh:

This one may have to go as well, I've banned smoking in the house but I've noticed ciggarete ends apearing in this ash tray. I once caught her about to put a cigg out in an £800 Moorcroft bowl... :ho:
