The candlesticks, tray and ring tray I would say are definitely from the Walther 'Nymphen' set! (I had a set myself and sold all but one pot which was chipped and the tray, which had a repaired crack
However, I have now obtained a perfect tray!
I love this design! :shock:
AFAIAA, the mermaid candlesticks came in two versions, one with both arms raised and one with only one arm raised.
I have seen this set in copies of 'Millers Guide' described as both 'Walther' and 'Czech' and I queried this with a gentleman (whose name I am sorry to say I have forgotten :oops: ) at Broadfield House Glass Museum, where they have examples of this set displayed. He informed me that although they are frequenlty described as 'Walther', the moulds were apparently passed around in the German / Czech area and they could be attributed to several glass houses around at the time they were made! :shock: :roll:
His view was that the 'Walther' attribution was as valid as any other, therefore I have always described them as Walther!

:wink: ) would be unduly worried about that attribution.
Gareth, if we were being pedantic (who, us? :shock: :wink: ) I suppose we could question the accuracy of the attribution but, IMHO, if Broadfield House are happy with it, so am I
