Anne’s Mystery Trinket Set 15 – even more mysterious now?

Anne’s Mystery Trinket Set 15
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=165:mystery-set-15&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52
is usually seen with a distinctive floral tray, candleticks with a large floral boss to the stem, a similar large floral boss as trinket pot lid finial, and smaller floral decoration to the pot body (as in photo 1).

Now I have come across two separate sets in clear amber glass, both with the characteristic 8-sided Mystery Set 15 tray, but both with variant pots.  Both sets have trinket pots with a tri-lobed lanceolate finial instead of the large floral boss, The pot bodies still have floral decoration, but the flower heads are now smaller and more discrete.

One amber set also has a ringholder that appears to be the same as that with Anne’s ‘original’ Mystery Set 15.

The other amber set also comes with a set of branched ‘double-holder’ candlesticks which may, of course, not necessarily have been standard to the set (though the colour match is good).

Another Mystery Set 15 tray in green uranium, this time also with the variant branched candlesticks (also in green uranium). So it looks as if the branched candlesticks were indeed sometimes standard with this set.

Plus picture of the amber branched variant candlesticks in more detail.

I suspect these were either all made by one glassworks and mixed and matched depending on what the buyer wanted, or they were made by several glassworks and mixed and matched by one wholesaler depending on what the retailers wanted. Until we can find any of them in a catalogue somewhere we're a bit stuck with them. They are a fairly commonly seen pattern, at least in the UK.

Another coincidence, known as unknown set 15 for now (I think). I picked up a set 4 days ago and haven't got round to posting yet. I have the tray, large and small lidded pots, 2 candles and Ring Holder. I think I am missing 1 small lidded pot. I have searched and found nothing else.
Pete. :-)
