Old Glass Blogpost - featuring Chance Brothers Pattern D!

This popular Victorian glass was manufactured by Chance Brothers in clear and tinted versions. One of a range of figured rolled glasses; smooth on one side and patterned or 'figured' on the other.

Pattern D - blue.

Pattern D - yellow.

Pattern D - green

Pattern D - yes you guessed it pink!

Unlike Muranese, Pattern D is hard to find for matching purposes, the closest match being Muranese.
