Sorry for the lateness in replying, but I have been finalising Patricia's new book, so haven't had a 'chance' to look at the forum as often.

The white background indicates a later Chance production, perhaps c.1978, but then it was invariably used, as Keith surmised, for Fiesta Glass (so post-1981). I guess this dates between 1978 and 1981.

Hi there:

FOUND another Chance glass with intact label as this one posted...but this one has the RED ROSES on it.  Thought I would just post here since now I have 2 of these same items, same shape, size.....but different flowers and flower colors.

Thanks

This design is Sovereign Rose. The red/orange colouring was always a problem for Chance. This was because the transfers were intended for ceramics, which had a different firing temperature and where the red colour would always come out truer.

My book mentions the problems of them getting true colours, in particular red. Don't have a copy to hand ATM, bur perhaps Keith can help out?
