Who said Chance glass wasn't collectable?

K, as a suggestion you could use Anne's Glass Gallery - it's there for the benefit of GMB members. The problem with TinyPic is that the photos have a limited 'shelf-life' and will eventually be discarded.

The vase you show is the type I have seen before so I'm assuming this other one is an oddity and have asked the seller for use of the photo. Yours will still get a good price though!

Yeah I thought it would be more 'natural' to go dark colour at bottom then lighter colour. Wonder if all the wide band models have a 'dark side'!! Or do you think someone at the factory had a sense of humour & thought they would leave the rest of us puzzling over oddities for years!! Purchased a 7" black cordon recently which exactly fits the transfer (no clear glass at edge) Wonder who spent the time getting an exact fit???

Chance were always experimenting and these oddities can often be test pieces. The 'correct' way is white, light colour, dark colour, so this one is very odd.

As they were silk-screen printed, it could just have been someone using the wrong enamel at the wrong time!

With respect to the Cordon vase: it is possible these was enamel sprayed rather than silk-screened, which doesn't allow printing to the edge. Difficult to tell the difference, but if you use a magnifying lgass you may just detect a slight texture of a regular pattern (the screen). Sprayed vases would not have any definable pattern.

However, if the white portion is smooth as a babies botty, then you're looking at opal glass (very rare) - see Nic's topic...

This vase is rare on three counts: opal glass, no pattern and 8" tall  :shock:  :D

well have had a good look at it & am really none the wiser!! It's definately 7" & appears to be clear glass (although it is really hard to tell with nothing to compare it to!!) the pattern feels the same as all the other cordon vases I have (7" & 4") am in the process of borrowing a magnifying glass & my husbands eyes for a closer look!! Have looked at Nic's & it does have the similarity of the pattern to the edges though so at least I'm not completely odd!!!!  :?

When you are measuring the handkerchief vases, are you measuring height  to the highest point or across the widest part of the rim?

Measure vertically to a point. This is only a rough guide but it does help to distinguish between the four sizes: 4", 5", 7", 8" (10, 12.5, 17.5, 20 cm)

Well done: now get the 4" and 7" ones to accompany it (I have both, but not the 5" one!) - but I do have a complete set of rrd polka-dots :D

K, if you can supply a photo of your oddity I might be able to tell you a little more.
