Yes, probably in Dover or over the rainbow.  :D

I think Chance defined the smaller 'bowls' as dishes, and the larger 'dishes' as bowls (IYSWIM!  ;D ) But the dish and bowl are both recorded in my book, with photo, p.59, Paul.

So:
Smaller than 6-in* then it's a dish (what you would eat from)
Larger than 6-in* then it's a bowl (what you would serve from)

* Or thereabouts (6-in = 15cm)

The blue are definitely scarcer, but the ruby ones still seem to fetch a good price - I'll always buy them as long as Patricia's not looking...

thanks David  -  I only mentioned this one as the size didn't appear on page 59 - and wondered if I had something rare ;).

quote............. "I'll always buy them as long as Patricia's not looking"...         heaven forbid, do I detect a man under the thumb ;D  ;)

I'll send you an off board note about my proposed commercials dealings re the Yasmin plates and this one :)

that's it Anne :-[

Ah, this is the Dowl, sometimes called a Bish... ahem...  ;D

Sorry, my cronky eyes saw that as 6-in+, not 7-in+ and so this is the interim size, and as you rightly say not recorded in Chance Expressions. At the time of writing I recorded that size on p.38, but not in Intaglio. The following is correct:

No. 16        7-in (19cm)        Nut Bowl

So the full range of Dishes and Bowls as taken from a 1969 catalogue is:

11.   6-in (16.5)   Fruit Dish
16.   7-in (19)      Nut Bowl
12.   8-in (21.2)   Fruit Bowl
51.   10-in (25)       Fruit Bowl
32.   12-in (30.5)    Bowl

Because moulds never changed (apart from the radical design swing in 196970), these sizes would be pretty close over the years and would never alter that much (the odd +/- -in would be the most I suppose).

The trouble with the quoted measurements is that Chance rounded it to the nearest -in, and they would inevitably alter slightly from batch to batch. So I was either measuring examples or being quoted dimensions by other people, and that leads to some minor discrepancies. I'll be re-issuing tables in Chance Additions based on the catalogues now that I have this documentation.

sorry, not putting my nuts in it for anyone...........it's too small ;).          Thanks for the explanation. :)

this is the Davidson bowl I use for nuts at Christmas - I forget what the pattern No. is - got to be one of the biggest bowls I've ever seen - it's 13" across and about 6" deep. :)
