chance spiderweb ??
« on: December 07, 2015, 12:20:44 AM »
Hi, every so often I look through eBay for pieces that take me back to when I was a child... (my granddad worked at chances Smethwick and that was what they pulled out at Christmas and other special occasions)  Today I stumbled upon this set, which I bought because l like it, but is it chances?

  I am familiar with the plain spiderweb and amethyst crinkle as they owned these, I have also seen the blue, green and yellow crinkle. I have not seen clear before tho.
  Cheers Sue  :)

Hi and welcome to the GMB. Thanks also for your e-mail, which I have replied to.

These and many other variations are all by Chance: green, yellow, blue and pink seem to be the stock coloured bands, but teal and amethyst are less often seen.

Sorry, should have said that white crinkles are in the less-than-common bracket as well.

David, thank you for getting back to me.
  That's lovely news... I was expecting them to be fake because of the colour and how many pieces in the set, I didn't think I could be that lucky  :D  I'll still keep looking for the amethyst footed desert bowls that enchanted me as a child tho  ;)

Hello Sue and welcome to the board. Have you seen the orange crinkles version too?

Hi Anne, I haven t seen orange before either  :o , tho I had seen something similar a while back not sure what colour but the flowers made me think it was something else... I didn't realise the pressed glass designs could also be painted... v cool.  I must get those books of David's... got a copy of Additions I found second hand that is coming for Xmas from me to me hehehe...  ;)

The floral decorations on virtually all Chance glassware are enamel transfers, not painted, although plain stripes, edgings and rims can either be sprayed or hand-applied. Close examination will reveal which is which.

Did anyone watch the Great Pottery Throw Down on BBC2 last week (the final is on tonight - Tuesday)? This showed the contestants applying stripes by hand. A really interesting series.

Ah, I didn't realise the floral designs were transfers, they look so intricate. I knew the pictoral designs were as I saw lots of examples such as the car pin dishes. I would love to know how they made the floral enamel transfers, they are so beautiful. I wish I had asked my granddad when he was still with us.
