Now this is an interesting one, but may not be Chance. At least, I'm pretty sure it's not a Chance design and the size isn't quite right: I've noted a 3" and 4½" square dish, but not 3½".

Of course, if Chance didn't make it, who did? It may be a later Fiesta dish during the 1980s and the style seems to suggest this era.

Thanks Hil, I've corrected the link length.

THis one is almost certainly by Houze of the USA, but it goes to show that Chance didn't corner the market when it came to quintessential British sights! As a tourist item, I wonder if any of these dishes were sold in the UK? Otherwise, why did Houze make them in the first place?
