Not A Chance
The title says it all. This is all the other slumped glassware from around the world – mainly continental – that is definitely not by Chance Brothers.
The White GooseA new Dutch company called 'The White Goose' has been realised since this tray was found. The decoration is quite thick and applied to the top.
The White Goose, labelA close-up of the label. Anotehr item in Chance Additions, shown on p.111, are also believed to be the same company: the diamond pattern and the deep textured plate. TWG also made the large slumped lightshades.
Phoenix TumblerQuite reminiscent of the Orlak tumbler, with the wave-ribbed optics, which preceded this model although the metal frame is quite different.
