The display was drawn from the Circaglass collection along with some scarce examples loaned by David Encill.

The exhibition was curated by David Encill, who wrote the book Chance Expressions, assisted by Patricia Coccoris and Dr. Malcolm Dick (History West Midlands).

The location of the exhibition was stand number seven in Hall 1.
