Tonight I saw and handled
my first piece of Orlak! :shock:
Because the only prior reference was oven-to-tableware, having a slight orange tinge, I was quite taken aback. I knew Chance also produced this range as tableware, but this was a clear glass tumbler, quite thin, measuring about 6" (15cm) with an interesting optic effect - like tiny pinches - that makes it look a little like optic-ribbed. BTW, there's no mistaking this ID as it has a quite large acid-etched 'ORLAK' logo on the base - suddenly everyone's an expert!
The good news is that I'm OK to take photographs and the owner is quite local (and a Chance collector!)
Sadly, they saw the protrusion in my jacket pocket as I walked out of the door... :roll: :lol:
