Your tray is from the Tiara party line of Indiana Glass (USA). They called it the Empress line from Tiara Exclusives circa 1984. Tiara was like Tupperware...they had parties for women only at Tiara parties glass was sold. Ken

Ken, thank you, that's really good to know. So it would be a serving dish for nibbles or salad or whatever then?  Nothing to do with a trinket set after all.

Anne it was called a Tiara Empress Bird of Paradise Dresser Tray. There was an optional Bird of Paradise Trinket or Powder Box available that sat on the tray. I'll post a link below that should take you to the 1984 catalog (just click on the 1984 on the list). Picture isn't great, but 1/2 way down the page you should see the Bird of Paradise items. Now Tiara didn't make the glass, they had it made for them primarily using molds designed by the Indiana Glass Company in the 1920's, but several companies made glass for them under contract including Indiana, Fenton, Dalzell-Viking, Bartlett Collins, Pilgrim & a couple of others.

Ooooh yes indeed, thank you Ken, really useful info. May I quote you and the source for the Glass Trinket Sets site please? I've very little about American trinket sets as yet. (Link to Trinket set site in sig block below.)
