Title: Chance Glass 7" Candy Stripe - opal-flashed
Post by: Anne E.B. on April 21, 2011, 06:52:32 PM
My OH bought me this to go with my collection :kissy: and if I'm not mistaken its a 7" opal-flashed Candy Stripe model dating back to 1962 according to David's book :thup:
Just love the Spring colour!

Candy Stripe is a scarce design, so it's a good find. If it is also opal-flashed then these are rare!

Hi CherryT ;) Pleased to hear you like it.

This is my latest addition acquired yesterday http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/DSCF2521.jpg  I can't make my mind up if it is Bandel Type 1 or Bandel Type 2 (shown in David's book) in maroon.  Its a whopper though at 8" high and the biggest I have in my collection of 30+  It really is very striking looking and only just fits on top of my wall units :o

Perhaps David can confirm when he looks in :X: :thup:

Aww thats lovely, the 8" are a bit harder to come by aren't they?  I have two 7", one is  brown/amber coloured glass with a bark effect, and the other one is a red grid.  The others are all 4", mix of amber hammer, blue dimpled, bandel, cordon, polkadot, gingham, mixtures of colours!  Yet to find an escher or Psychedelic!  :D

Type 1 I think, because it has four sets of stripes.

It will be a bit difficult for me I'm afraid, as they line all the top cabinets on three walls, and I don't have a wide angle camera which would help (or a step ladder :thud: ) but I'll see what I can do Rosie :thup:

Thanks Christine.  I couldn't make out the difference no matter how much I looked and compared.  :-[
