Who said Chance glass wasn't collectable?
« Reply #90 on: September 02, 2006, 10:46:39 AM »
Thanks, those came through fine.

As the white goes to the edge it can be one of two finishes:

1. Opal flashed glass - this is a glass surface, not sprayed, so will be very shiny.

2. Enamel sprayed - this will appear duller than a opal glass finish.

However, looking at the photos, I would say it was spayed enamel and then silk-screen printed with the Cordon pattern. If it were opal-flashed the colour would be a lighter-grey and not the brighter finish exhibited on yours.

But for all that, it's still quite uncommon and probably an earlier model.

Thanks David  :D
Seems in very good nick too if it's an earlier model, no wear on base & a nice black colour
Will have to put it on the 'Do not dust in anger shelf!'

Another posy vase that got a very high price for no reason I can discern apart from two enthusiastic bidders:

Plain black Bandel for £25.10 ???!!!

Hi David,
This is another problem of glass researchers! As people start to learn about companies, they push prices up - and as you say, it only takes two people with rushes of blood to the head.

I wonder if it was shilling? I did look but it all looked above board.

Hmm, "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing"... but they didn't get it from me!

It's very exciting cos I've got this HUGE Chance handkerchief vase sitting on the top of the cupboard, and I have just got to check the pattern and I hope it is worth A FORTUNE .... cos it was worth tuppence when I got it!

Bah!  Bought a honeysuckle triangular dish yesterday in a charity shop.  Forgot it was in the boot of car, and accidently tipped it out onto the drive whilst looking for something today.  

What a waste of £1.50!!!   :x

That depends how the 1.50 gets used from then on, surely?

Ok, I should re-phrase that.  "That was a terrible waste of slumped glass, wasn't it?!".

Hmmm...

Slumped glass has fallen by its nature... so you just helped it to complete its destiny. :twisted:
