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.

Yes was there with PC. Bought about 7 pieces, including a new dining table, but no Chance bits that I wanted! Beautiful day and crowds of people, but we got there when it opened and took advantage of an early start. Crikey was it cold early on!

We got stuck in the queue for nearly half an hour and were a bit late arriving, also picked up a large 'arctic' hanky vase in blue  ;D

I also saw a large amber handkerchief vase in hammered texture being sold. Might have been Newark though, from which I returned from on Friday.

But I did find this tray at Newark, which appears to be a very early c.1951 promotional tray. I'm judging this from the diagonally striped border, which can be seen (just) on p.46 Chance Expressions - the promo photo. Whilst this is not clear, the original photo definitely shows an identical border.

That's the one - a little OTT price-wise when you can buy them off eBay, plus postage, much cheaper.
