Today's other Chance  :roll: sighting was a 6.5 in Spderweb, fully frosted and affixed into an aluminium base, glued with that whte stuff not screwed.

:D :D :?

Could the De Luxe range then, be the Waverly ones I've seen that have the coloured surfaces on them, (I'm not sure if it's not a kind of paint - it does wear off) and the Spiderweb ones that come with the bands of bobbly coloured/white glass bits on them?
(It does look a bit like frosting, but of the granulated sugar in egg-white type, and I'm reluctant to use the word as far as this is concerned because I think "frosted glass" means something else.)

Anne, thanks for confirming: I can't seem to find that photo but do you have the URL as I'd like to include it. Looking at the bowl very closely, I can confirm it IS coated, not frosted! :roll:

Christine, that Spiderweb sounded rather interesting. I wonder if this was pre-war due to the way the base was fixed?

Sue, see above: I'm sure the example I have is the 'ivory inserts' variety and will post a photo shortly.

I've now posted the photos of the Ivory Britannia on the site, but here they are for convenience:

(http://www.encill.abelalways.co.uk/glassy-eye/photos/british/chance/pressed/britannia-ivory1.jpg)  (http://www.encill.abelalways.co.uk/glassy-eye/photos/british/chance/pressed/britannia-ivory2.jpg)

The surround is chrome-plated with filigree decoration and either resin or bakelite handles. The glass measures 8" x 6½" (20 x 16.5), 2¼" (6) high.

I think you can see why I thought it was frosted at first... :wink:

David - check this white bowl with metal rim out.  This is very similar to the bowl that I had in the past  (lost pictures) - now thought to be Britannia pattern.   This one too might be Chance, although I think the pattern is very slightly different from the Britannia ones you have.  What do you think?

Lol!  Just spotted your picture - it is the same pattern :P

Yes, I thought it was frosted on eBay as well, David. It was only when you said about the de luxe range that the penny dropped. :)

Anne (B): Yes, definitely Britannia, but curious it has a green tinge. It's also very interesting how they adapt the pattern to suit the shape and it does create a lot of variations. I missed the auction anyway, but am wondering where I can put all the piggin' stuff :D

A milk jug with matching sugar bowl from the De Luxe range, dating from 1950 and featuring ivory inserts.

Thanks, Anne!

 :lol: Thanks.  Goodness knows what I'm going to do with all of it????  

David - here's one to add to your list "Plates: Fluted Edge" - i.e. Summer Melody 4.75" diameter.  (got no fractions on keyboard :roll: so if anyone knows how I can do them please let me know :P )

Did you notice the unremarkable Spiderweb bowl that went for £21 on eBay recently?  Are prices going up?
