Just so people are aware, I have now published the second book on Chance Brothers, called Chance Additions. See www.ChanceGlass.net.

There is also a new website: www.chanceglassware.uk (not .co.uk) to include those pieces of glass that were not available at the time of publication. This website will just keep growing as more items are found.
