Clear crystal trinket set – German, Czech or … ?
« on: November 14, 2014, 03:54:20 PM »
A moulded (and then with some cuts?) clear crystal trinket set comprising: rectangular tray, pair candlesticks with square feet, large lidded pot, pair of perfume flasks, and a pin dish. To some idea of scale, the tray measures 12 x 8.5 inches.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by Alex Barber).

To me it screams German or Czech, especially with those flat-banner-shaped stoppers from the perfume flasks, and probably post-WW2.

Comments, suggestions or ID’s, please? – or is it just another addition to the growing number of ‘unknowns?

Fred.

Thank you for the lead, Angela.

I must say I hadn't looked at that catalogue before, but stylistically the pieces seem in the right 'ball park' for place of manufacture, and about right for date too. A pity that there is not a direct match.

Fred.
