Let's start the thread off with a 1962 Chance Glass 'Candystripe' 7 inche hankie vase. Nic - I seem to remember you had one of these in a different colour but yours was a very special opal flashed one - is that right? ...

Mine was screenprinted onto opal-flashed glass, rather than the white being screenprinted on to clear glass with the rest of the design and leaving a clear border around the rim - as with standard items. It was probably an early production piece using up opal glass blanks left in storage. Additionally, it was oversized at 8" tall.

I'll have to access my sister's collection of these vases at some point - she's a near-complete array of colours, sizes and patterns, including some of the very early ones of block colours printed onto solid opal glass.

A question for the Chancer's:

My Dad was in the army (Gurkha Rifles) and I remember an ashtray similar to the above with their regimental emblem on it, long since smashed / lost - could that have been Chance Glass?

Yep it could well have been chance. They made all sorts of commercial, commerative and advertising bits of glass.

Officially Chance was absorbed by Pilkington in 1981 when they moved North. They started in 1824, so a long history.
