No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

I photographed this from the in-house magazine, Chance Comments, July 1951, but would your brother mind sending me a proper scan?

Your grandfather must then have worked for WE Chance Co. Ltd, which was responsible for blowing the globes. I did have one until recently, but flogged it! The Chance ones are much harder to find - normally they are Hailware (Hailwood & Ackroyd) and a few are known from Webb's if my memory serves me right (rather less so these days!) Fiestaware was also made by WEC, up to about 1970.
