A page cataloguing Chance Fiestaware 'floral' designed patterns (work in progress). Compiled with the help of Max, Anne, Anne B, Sue, Robbo and Tony H from Other data was sourced from Lesley Jackson's 20th Century Factory Glass and Smethick Heritage Centre Trust (SHCT).

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

According to their 1974 Home Ornaments and Gifts Christmas Bulletin (intended for staff), the Decorative Glass section lists a "Fluted Plate, Coloumbine, 'Chance'" having a price of £1.13.
