It came without its screw top - which may well have been metal.         A broad band of Matthey Crinkles around the midriff - above which are two gold coloured bands, and with a similar band around the base.          The wording underneath reads.........'HYGENE WARE - MADE IN ENGLAND' - and in the centre is.........REGD. NO. 873612  -  which is beyond the cut-off date of my 'Blue Book', so unable to check and see to whom this was registered, although would imagine it's somewhere around the mid 1950's.
Can't see anything indexed in David's 'Chance Expressions' book under 'Hygene Ware', so may well not be anything to do with Chance.
The shape makes me think of a pickle jar possibly, although I appreciate that traditionally pickles always had glass tops  -  height is about 4" (100mm).
So  -  all thoughts welcome please, and thanks for looking. :)

ah yes, thank Mel, now I do remember having seen these plastic lidded things before (probably when they first came out, unfortunately).   So probably nothing to do with Chance then  - do you know to whom the No. was registered Mel??
thanks very much for finding the links. :)

sorry Paul, don't have any references to that reg number either.

Have you seen this 1955 pottery gazette ad ?

no, I hadn't - very interesting, and thanks again, and since they call themselves 'Industries', it's quite probable that they made these items.           I'll look at this Rd. No. on my next trip to TNA at Kew, and if there is anything further of interest I'll add it here.

Nope, nothing to do with Chance, as you surmised  ;)

The Crinkles effect is seen not only on Chance but also many other glassware, as seen here. There is also some glassware that appears to come from Czechoslovakia, which has the Crinkles effect.

That's because the board runs on GMT - or more properly UCT. ;)

thanks Anne.             No - I didn't .............not clever like that, plus the fact that my interest in this sort of glass is not as passionate as other areas, but thanks for reminding me of the facility.
I know the Rd. No., but until I visit Kew I will not know the exact date, and would like to see for myself exact details of the registration name  - so will abstain from making an entry until then.
If anyone has an unresolved question that needs the assistance of TNA - think Fred did mention something but I've now foregotten  -  let me have details  -  I'm hoping to visit later this week, hopefully.
