Chances blue 'regency' pattern??

Carolyn Preston:
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.

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

keith:
The head is a bit horsey or is it just grizzly ? ::) ::) ;D ;D
I got it from the RSPCA shop the woman behind the counter thought it was pretty! :o :o

David E:
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.

Hi Keith
I have been tried to flog this plate in box for 1 in table sale two weeks ago. But no taker. Wrong people????

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
