Take a look at this :shock:

And whilst I'm on about handkerchief vases (whoops, sorry - Posy bowls :lol: ) David, I've got one that for some reason I thought was Aqualux c.65 but then couldn't find it  when I checked:shock  :roll:   :?  Must be a 'Senior moment'  I'll submit a pic. on the correct link.  I was just in the process of listing in in fleabay and had a panic about it.  Lost my listing now :evil:

Ooh, I've been watching this for days! But it'll be interesting to see what it goes for. You'll also find some others going for surprising prices, like a chocolate & cream 'Wide Band' model that's currently £51.

'Wide Band': anyone got a better name for this pattern? I've been unable to determine the official name, so it may be open to offers.

How about the 'Max Kimber' vase?  I think that's got a ring to it.   :P  :P

Hmm, not a bad idea – would be nice to recognise her contribution!

For a photo, see the Chance section in LJ's 20th C Factory Glass. It quotes the four textures as: Hammered, Flemish, Stippolyte and Maxine, which is top-right in photo (a fine basket-weave that you can just make out). I'll have to see if I can use that photo...

EDIT: If you meant a link to the eBay listing:

Looks nice, I am sure she would appreciate it, so I second my own suggestion. :shock:

The Choc & Cream 'wide band' is the item on eBay* – that might need naming if no ex-worker from Chance can remember, or if it's not documented.

But 'Bowey' it is otherwise.

Edit: * I don't mean the colour, but the pattern type (Wide Band)

And here's the result of the 4" Chocolate & Cream 'Bowey' posy vase :D

7414653500 - £86.21 (the buyer is a serious purchaser of these!)
I've actually got one like this as well  :roll:  :P

There is another 'Bowey' vase coming up soon in blue.

Also:
7414519896: £102.20 - red 7" 'Grid' pattern
7414572961: £36.55 - red 4" Psychedelic
7414312595: £41.00 - purple 7" Cordon

But only £13.03 for a red 'Escher' :?:
