Unfortunately, this bowl is not the Gossamer pattern :(

The latest information I have (just this afternoon) is a fine diagonal pattern, with a tiny bobble where each line intersects. Apparently it is unlike previous Chance patterns like Brittania and is much more delicate.

Does this rings any bells with anyone? :?

Ooooohhh interesting that David, I was hoping that mine was the missing one, but never mind. It's still a nice bowl and I'd still like to know who did make it.

Meanwhile, to answer your other question, no it doesn't ring any bells at all... but at least we have a description that should help us track one down! :)

Yes, a little disappointing Anne, but I'm sure I've come across this pattern before — I just can't think where! :x

David, from your description, I believe this is Gossamer...

The lines are actually raised as are the 'dots' where the lines intersect.   This bowl is 2½" high x 6" diam. and has 'Chance' in raised lettering on the inside.  Looks to be part of a fruit bowl set.  If you want a close-up of the outside patt. I'll do one. :P

Hurrah! Thanks Anne  :P

Yes, this looks just like I imagined and the embossed 'Chance' logo really clinches it!

Thanks, a close-up photo would be good: if it's side-on like those on the site, this would fit in with the other examples.

Yay!  Well found Anne. Isn't that super?! :D

Was it one you had lurking in a cupboard somewhere or did you just happen to spot it after David posted the description?

Yes, I was wondered that as well! This pattern is quite uncommon, so one to look out for.

Just Cato to identify now, although there is a monochrome photo showing this pattern in 'British Table and Ornamental Glass' as detailed elsewhere in this thread.

I've got some pretty strange things lurking about in cupboards - but this isn't one of them :lol:   I spotted it in the local charity shop this morning and remembered David's description of intersecting lines/raised dots.  Of course the inscription then clinched it :P  Yay :lol:
