I have a pink bowl as well which had a stand fitted and where the stand would have been the colour is quite dark, but everywhere else it's faded a lot, so I think just normal washing has had an effect. This theory may also be supported by a green Waverley bowl with the same finish I found which was really really dirty but having washed it carefully I find the green is almost perfect!  :roll:

Yes, that's the Canterbury pattern. Well found: they aren't that common.

Erm... not pressed glass though :wink:  :lol:

Hi all   :D

I bought this today.  Apologies if someone's already questioned this style -there's too much here to trawl back thru!  :shock:  :shock:

Looks like Chance, but is it?  Divided dish, medium/large size.  Will get measurements if it helps.  :D

Think so Max. It's the divided version of mine here:

Does the size match mine? Size: 256 mm x 155 mm

Thanks Anne!   :D

Mine's the same length, but slightly wider at 170mm.  I think they must have been a bit meaner with the nibbles in those days...lol The compartments wouldn't fit many peanuts in!  :P  :lol:

Cheers for looking at yours for me. x

Hi Max/Anne,

Yes, definitely the Britannia pattern. Only thing is, there might have originally been four removable inserts.

Following is a link to a photo of a circular divided dish that shows five inserts (four quadrants and a circular central one), scanned from the 1951 book, Mirror for Chance.

I can see what you mean, but I doubt it.  :?  If there were too, then the nut-capacity would be even smaller!  :lol:  

Ooh and the sides of each section are sloping, so I think (dare I be definite?  Nooo! lol) that inserts wouldn't fit.  :idea:  :?

More variations to be added to the different sizes. Found a Spiderweb set in blue frosting today. Large bowl, gilt edge, two rows of frosting 9.25 x 3.25 in plus six matching small bowls 4.75 x 1.75 in. Last week found a medium bowl in clear plus four small bowls. Click to enlarge

Well done Christine: I think this is the last coloured example I needed :D

They also look to be in pretty good condition as the gilt is normally quite worn from use. 8)
