 8) There's a lot of glassware out there with the vintage and veteran car transfers, but I only know of Chance that used them on trays (18 in all), although there are some anomalies out there - see pp.81,105, Chance Additions. All other glassware appears to be made by other companies.

Also worth remembering that the trays were being produced from 1959 until c.1990 (by Fiesta Glass) so there's plenty of them out there.
