Yup, got one  ;D

They are not that uncommon and crop up occasionally. They were made for some Ladies Society (can't remember which one now) based in the Midlands. The bear is the symbol for Warwickshire (which is why the cricket team is called The Bears)  ;)

What a peculiar thing!
I would think it would be some sort of commission, probably related to the logo.
Regency is a pretty, lacy printed pattern that (IMNSHO) clashes violently with the modernity of the strong Cotswold texture...... and the poor bear illustrated is horribly muzzled and with a bit of a tree, something you only see illustrated in things of antiquity, when such cruelty was rampant. I find it very disturbing.
Cheers, Sue (M)

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Thanks David,
Sue,I don't mind the two patterns but can't say I'm keen on the bear logo either.

Are we sure that's a bear. Looks more like a horse to me. And a cartoon horse at that. And certainly doesn't go with the pretty lace pattern.

Carolyn

Added after looking at it again, okay maybe the paws, rather than hoofs, but still...

Definitely the Warwickshire bear. Here a link to the Wikipedia page on the county and you'll see the flag there with the bear and staff.

Personally, I don't think it's a piece that really inspires, to be honest, except to someone interested in Chance glassware. I have also placed the caveat in the new book:

Scarcity does not necessarily equate to collectability
