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.
A 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 emblem points to a continental manufacture. Features a Greco border, that was popular with Chance in the 1950s, but copied elsewhere.
This label was used by Heye Filigran GmbH in Germany This helps identify other pieces with a similar, or the same pattern.
Light shade with a continental light fitting. A similarly decorated shade has a label 'The White Goose', so this Dutch company is probably the maker. Courtesy Patricia Coccoris
