yes they are one of  the two weirdest, not nicest, things about glass that I've come across - only superseded by  that icey type effect that looks like glue has been sprayed on and then a frosted coating which has all been pulled into v or fan shaped shapes at different angles all over it.  I couldn't actually bear to handle a piece of glass with that on.

When I was very young, our juice glasses were covered in bands of matthey crinkles.
I keep telling folk mother was a sadist.......... ;D

my uv green one wasn't marked at all and it was a different mould to the blue one I think.  It had a sort of textured band round it.  I don't think the blue one has that - will go and check.

Not seen a yellow one,how many colours did they do? ;D
Just adding to this thread as I have a little more to offer (missed it first time around).

A yellow one is unusual, so was this opaque or clear, M?

But of the colours I know of:

OPAQUE
Blue
Green (Keith, if your other green one isn't uranium, this is probably later)
Yellow
Opal White

CLEAR/TRANSLUCENT
Blue
Amber
Green
Clear (flint)

MATTHEY CRINKLES
Yellow crinkles onto clear

Apart from these there are many variations to the embossing on the base: Parker; Chance; Fibreglass; With Compliments of Chance (plus others). I also have two examples where the top ring is embossed. Additionally, there are some with transfers affixed and a few that are (ahem) tetradecagon (OK, that's 14-sided  ;) ) in a translucent blue. These appear in this thread.

ANOMALIES
A very deep-amber, which borders on being ruby. It also has a slightly different base, so could have been an early trial glass mix.
A clear glass one that's been engraved!

More will be revealed when the second book's released.

the yellow was opaque David.  I'm kicking myself now but it was chipped on the handles ends so I left it.  Darn it  ;D

Very, very few are undamaged. The design, unfortunately, lends itself to getting chipped!

oh that makes it worse.  Why didn't I know that then  ;D
I've missed quite a few pieces because in the early days of collecting my instinct said 'buy' and my head said 'no'.  Now I go with my instinct and hope for the best  :)

Darn, just realised I missed off Opal White as well - could a mod please update my little list?

Thanks.
