Oh heck, why did I start this...? :roll:
In respect to Chance's 'Swirl
' pattern, a few oddities are starting to crop up. Some I already know about, but there are a few that are causing me to query which is which :?
Christine recently posted one plate that I'm confident is not Swirl: smugly I pointed out that the swirl went in the opposite direction, and the fluting was not a Chance shape. Fine. Max also had the dish with a boar's head in the centre 'hole' that we eventually found to be Filigran by Unionglas. Okey-dokey.
However, I've now come across another two examples (one in my own collection :oops: ) where the swirl is in the opposite direction, but the shapes look right, so I feel the need to 'nail this sucker' as it's starting to annoy me! :twisted:
Here's one where the swirl is in the 'wrong' direction (anti-clockwise):http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7419813015
Note the gilt appears to overlap slightly (not necessarily Chance) but the design does not go to the edge (Chance-like). Size is also like Chance, so is it Chance? :?
We already know that Sherdley made a copy-cat design (we assume) called 'Twist'. However, I've still to find a piece that's been positively attributed to this design: a few possibilities but that's all.
I've decided to create a new page on http://www.chanceglass.net
to show these anomolies... but any thoughts in the meantime?
