If it has MADE IN ENGLAND on the base, then it could be Chance, otherwise I would say not. The lightness of the clear tumbler and the slightly lower height makes me think it is another brand, although Chance were known to ship the tumbler in clear, with or without transfers or decorations. I believe the transfers were open-stock, meaning anyone could purchase them and use them.
