Chance -Britannia Pint Glass
« on: June 04, 2011, 03:23:10 PM »
I saw a Britannia pint glass in a charity shop the other day. I did not know Chance produced pint glass in Britannia pattern. I came across lot of Lancer pint glass but never this one.  Its not in the book either.

Keith. The Britannia pint glass is in B'ham. Let David tell us is it worth getting it first. Of course l am making assumption that it is still there.

Having looked at the manuscript of the forthcoming book, I think someone needs to buy it now, as there is confusion over sizes and volumes and it would help to clarify the issue.

Is this a pint jug, or a pint glass? I know there could be a 1 pint tumbler (½pt is shown in the book).

The half-pint milk jug is 4¼in. tall
The pint lemonade jug is 7in. tall

If it is a jug then they are not that uncommon, but certainly worth £1.50!

David. It is a pint glass.  I have double checked it.  Same size as Lancer pint glass. On the handle there is a resit for metal lid when required. I will show it here when l got it.

I look forward to seeing it then. Although the Britannia pattern is quite common, I have never heard of, or seen reference to, a pint glass. Photos would be much appreciated, as always.
