Thanks for the update - but I just realised the spelling of 'GOODDEN' in the subject line is also wrong.

The one listed on eBay is not the Goodden one. Chance probably stopped making these in the 1960s, or even earlier, so the date of 1980s (assuming it is correct) would not figure either. I suspect this one was made by Nazeing, but I agree it is similar to the Goodden style (a side view would be quite helpful!)

Is it?   :o
I remember double checking the spelling before posting but didn't use your site to check it.
Apologies.  It is spelt incorrectly elsewhere, which is where I checked. 
There is info on another designer called Robert Gooden.  Presumably that is where the incorrect spelling arose.

It sure is with a double-D. See Chance Expressions, p.14

See his obit here:

Perfectly understandable mistake to make.

So sorry David, I meant to say everywhere 'else' but got distracted.
Shall I report to mods and ask for it to be changed or have you?
Many thanks for pointing that out :)

I haven't reported it, apart from mentioning it in an earlier post (see above, third one down).

But heck, I was looking through my own text for Chance Additions and found that I'd made the same natural spelling mistake  ::)

Title spelling amended at the top and bottom of the topic to GOODDEN, other replies left as Gooden as the search function will then respond if anyone searches on the wrong spelling too. :)
