Tigerchips:
I'm buying Chance glass now :lol:

Is this Chance glass? It's got the same pattern as DenCill's Chance dish in a previous post. 4.75 inches by 3.50 inches.

I'm also buying things that remind me of Chance glass.  :lol:

I saw this tray in a charity shop and I could not resist this stylish retro design. I was surprised to find that it had "Portmeirion" printed on it. I didn't even know they did glass. 11.25 inches square.

I've looked on their website and it says that they have only recently designed glass. I can't find this pattern on the site though?
Portmeirion glass

Many thanks for listening.  :)

It's David's fault... he's got us all at it TC!  :lol:

That looks greatly like the dish David posted...very nice find indeed. :)

Tigerchips:
The seller had lots of nice things like Baccarat and littala but when I saw this nothing else mattered.  :D

I'm going on Ebay now to see what fortunes I've missed.  :)

David E:
Hi 'chips,

Yes, the design is the same as mine - great find!

See: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,4026.0.html
Nigel writes an excellent appraisal. Can be dated anywhere from c.1950-1955?, although I'm not sure how long these were produced before giving way to screen-printed Fiestaware.

If you ever want to sell... :wink:

The Portmeirion link is very interesting too. Cool dish! Is it screen-printed though?

This Link does list all their glassware and I note the 'Surf' pattern is similar in the way yours is produced, but there aren't any clues as to how it's made.

Tigerchips:
Yeee haaaaa.  :D

Thank you DenCill, i'm just surprised really as all the dealers were crowded around the table looking at everything but that ruby tray. After spotting it I had a little bit of difficulty reaching for it. It was like watching Medusa with all the arms outstretched trying to pick things up.  :shock:

My mum bought me this today.

It's just under 5.50 inches wide and just under 14 inches across. Nearly 1 inch high.

Grantleigh pattern, I think.

The Portmeirion plate is printed on the back but it doesn't have that white background like the one on the Grantleigh dish/plate.
