Chance Fiestaware Shapes & Sizes

A page attempting to catalogue Chance Fiestaware shapes and associate them with a photographic example (work in progress). Compiled with the help of Max, Anne, Anne B, Sue, Robbo and Tony H from GlassMessages.com. Other data was sourced from Lesley Jackson's 20th Century Factory Glass and Smethick Heritage Centre Trust (SHCT).

All sizes are given in inches as originally specified by Chance, to the nearest quarter (¼"). Due to the way the glass was manufactured it is subject to slight variances (range given in italics), probably due to the initial size of the blank and/or variances in the slumping process.

KEY:
Those patterns showing the 'F' logo indicate these have also been noted with a 'Fiesta Glass' label (hence 1981 or later as produced by Fiesta Glass Ltd).

Plates: Plain Edge (see below for Dishes)
Note: Those measurements in green indicate they could also be used with add-on handles or bases.
