:D Anne...I just looked up completed listings on Ebay.  Are you sure it wasn't a Lancer pattern that went for £21?  I've got one sitting on my desk here still replete with it's 50p charity shop sticker!   :shock:

Did a Spiderweb go for the same price recently?

Is it worth buying Waverley big bowls?  I've already got two  :shock: and just passed up another one for £1 this morning...  :?

PS:  Who is 'Coffee-a-go-go' then?  :?:

I think I was getting my Lancers muddled with my Spiderwebs! :oops:

Personally I find the clear glass Waverley bowls intriguing. High quality pressed glass and an excellent optical pattern. Is this other one (for £1) clear or coloured, Max?

It's clear David and it's a big one.  Not sure they did other sizes, I've only seen the large size.

I'm happy to buy it and send it up to you, if you like.  It's a very attractive design actually, and looks really contemporary in the right setting, as you know.  :D

You are absolutely right Max :P , it was Lancer not Spiderweb :oops: .  My head's aswim (? - have I just made that word up?) with Chance glass :roll:   It had 'Chance' impressed on the base.  I haven't come across one of these yet.  

I personally think some of the Spiderweb bowls look very contemporary and are very under-rated.
IMHO they don't look out of place with Scandinavian glass :P

That same dish of Sarah's is actually featured on my web site! :)

They do Max, I saw two small ones (about 3 or 4 inches across) in Lancaster before we started on the Chance malarkey!

This mornings buys:

1.  Large Waverley bowl with original metal handle (removable).  "Chance" impressed on inside base.  Measurements:  10.5" (26.5cm) diam.  x 3" (7.5cm) high.  Frosted exterior with a smooth polished interior.  Has a curious green tinge which can just be seen on picture - more noticeable at fluted edge.

2.  Green 4" handkerchief bowl - perfect condition - some reflections on pic.

Hi Anne,

Very nice bowl with a shaped rim that's described rather aptly as 'Ballerina'. I've also seen (got?) that style of clip-on handle but on a non-Chance item. The greenish tinge is probably due to a certain amount of iron in the glass mix, but no doubt one of the technologists will correct me. However, it is something I've noticed before – if you see the photo of the large Spiderweb bowl on my site, you'll spot it there as well.

This style of Handkerchief vases is quite common, but there are four different colours, four different textures and four different styles in Aqualux: a total of 64 possibilities! Mind you, the 5" height one is quite scarce and was only available in a very few combinations; at present I have only logged one in the cross-reference chart.

Following are some photos from Anne of a small pink Nut Bowl that might be the Gossamer pattern.

:shock:  click to zoom :shock:

And another showing...

Gossamer is described as "a design of fine tracery" and "originally clear glass, then in pastel shades of cream, pink & green" so this all seems relevant.

EDIT: NOT Gossamer... :(
