Chance Pressed Glass Patterns
« on: February 14, 2006, 10:44:59 PM »
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO SITE:

Due to the rapid growth of the Chance glass side within glassyeye.com, I decided to create a whole new web site purely to contain the research into this subject. The URL is now...

http://www.chanceglass.net

I think you'll find the site MUCH easier to navigate and the pages have been slimmed out more. It has also meant that the menu can now be far more specific, so each major topic has been split further (all Pressed glass styles into its own page, for example).

Thankfully (huge sighs of relief all round!) all patterns are now identified:

1934: Spiderweb
1948: Lotus
1949: Waverely
1949: Britannia
1951: Gossamer
1951: Lancer
1952: Cato

For the missing two pattern examples I now have a description:

LANCER: The Pattern is based on horizontal and vertical ridges forming oblongs with rounded corners.

GOSSAMER: "... a design of fine tracery". Broadfield House have an exhibit so this is less of a problem.

Beautiful new word David, presumably diminutive oblongs.    Nice try, nearly up to the standard of the Bensonic "knobberly".

David — Phew, lucky Lancer was made in Smethwick and not Sunderland, otherwise you would have had Jobling's oblings.

I like 'oblings'!    :shock:  Sounds like the sort of word my dyslexic son used to 'invent'  :roll:

It's a good, useful word  :D  Thank you, David!  I shall certainly use it in future to describe small oblongs  :lol:

I don't think so: this has panels that are ribbed vertically and horizontally, but NO OBLONGS

I ended up buying that jug and it has a star-cut, ground flat base, which doesn't seem to conform to Chance's bases. Good thought, and well remembered though :shock:

Think you mean this one, Anne?

Totally obling-less...

That's the one David. It's a super jug. So not a Chance design then... wonder who made it?

Just to add these to the pressed glass collection (David has copies of them already) yesterday I found two pieces in the Britannia pattern (click for larger image):

Small bowl 87mm diameter:

Oblong tray 155mm x 256mm:

David, check out this thread... does this look like Lancer?

Either Lancer or Gossamer, but not sure which at present (ah, to be an expert... :lol: )

I guess I'd expect something a little 'lacier' if it was Gossamer so Lancer is the best bet at present. Here's the picture again:
