Hello from a chance glass collector!
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:22:24 PM »
Hi everyone

Just joined the forum thought I'd say hi!

I collect mainly chance 16 handkerchief vases up to yet lol, 2 are 7" the rest are 4", plus a few plates!  I also love little shot glasses and babycham glasses too!   I collect a lot of other vintage bits and pieces too, if its younger than 25 years I'm not interested  ;D

My next aim is to get some vintage cherry b glasses, cuz they have a cherry design which I love!

Looking forward to chatting to fellow collectors on here, and of course finding out loads of information

 :hi:

Hi and welcome - David Encill is currently working on the second book - "Chance Additions" to go with "Chance Expressions". You really do need to get yourself a copy if you're a Chance collector - it's a wonderful book, it should be used as the gold standard to which all glass books aspire!

I do hope you will enjoy yourself here.  :tsk:
I don't collect Chance myself (in the same way I don't collect paperweights or jugs)...... so I've only got a few hundred bits hidden away.  :thud:

My excuse was we were trying to find all the bits needed for Chance Expressions  :angel:

Cheers, Sue (M)
