Art Deco Trinket/Dressing table set - Classical figures

Hello
If you look at the middle figure on the tray she is just like the lady flower frog by Mueller that sometimes comes in a bowl with 3 winged feet.Even down to the belt on her dress and the folds down the front of the skirt.Anyone else notice this?
Nige

John Smith:
Well spotted Nige...

These sets are often desribed as being the "Egyptian Pattern," but there is nothing Egyptian about them.

The three 'pyramid' shapes are in fact a part of the landscape...
The Three Graces would perhaps be a better description... ????

Also, the trinket dish of this set has an intaglio profile of a MALE, unlike the other component pieces of this set.

These dishes are also lids of the pots upon certain examples of complete sets.
"COMPLETE" being a personal requirement at time of purchase,
as with like most so-called trinket sets, produced by most factories of the period... Walther included.

NYMPHEN and also PIERROT & PIERRETTE (for example) both had their trays introduced as stand-alone items and were made available long before any other component items for each were then produced...

An interesting read, I searched for the flower frog you refer to Nige and I see the strong resemblance. I also notice the Black Poppy site has the frog in the unusual green/blue shade (teal?) I have seen photos of the "Egyptian" / "Three Graces" Dressing Table Set in Teal as well.

The Czech labels on the Uranium set on page 3 of this thread are not the same as the Czech label on Pamela's site (although I realise labels can change over time) but still this may be an indication that labels can't be relied upon as John said a few posts back.

Four reasons why the "Egyptian" Figural Lady set may be by Schweig Muller.

2. This set comes in the unusual Teal and very deep Turquoise shades as do other Muller pieces.

3. The Mystery Junior Miss set also comes in both of these unusual shades.

I have also noticed the similarities in the Junior Miss pots and the pots in this set.

This Muller piece is worth a look
