I've never seen one like that for real but have seen them on eBay. I would say it was a scarcer variant, but that's just from my Chance hunting experience  :)

Welcome Stuart, you must let us know about your Chance collection sometime.

Nice find Keith. I have found some plates with gilt 'lenticules' (yup, that's what they're actually called!) so I've got this new variant earmarked for the new book.

The second book is close to completion, but the delays have meant some great new finds will be included - even now I am including new data. The text is written (but Christine needs to run her beadies over it again) and the layout started, but I still have the usual mammoth task of all the photography.

I will also try to include as much illustration from the catalogues that I have photographed, but there is so much of it! I mean, does everyone want (or need) to know what every piece or Orlak (1929-33, oven-to-tableware) actually looked like?

Anyway, like Chance Expressions, there will be plenty to look at  ;)

David, I've contacted you via email so you've seen most of my collection, I know I still owe you a few pictures and will get them done, it's just been difficult to take good shots with the bad weather.

I only now feel qualified to offer an opinion on Chance now that I have a few years collecting behind me. Looking forward to the new book too!

Hi Stuart!

I have indeed seen most of your collection and many pieces will be appearing in the book. You certainly have a good eye, so keep on looking!

And true to word, tonight I just included new information on a double Fiesta sandwich set, in two different patterns, in a single box. I've written this up, but I'm just waiting for photographs from Sue C who we haven't heard from for a long time.

Thanks Sue! Hope to hear from you in GMB any time soon.
