I have part of this set in frosted flint and would I be right in thinking it is 'Rebecca at the Well' I found information online that Bakewell, Pears & Co made such pieces in 1876 and was reproduced by Fostoria in the 1970's. She is a standing lady holding a similar pot, this could be a copy of that. I have seen it called the Egyptian set because of the Pyramids on the tray.

That candlestick in it's general form is not unusual...I think mention of Fostoria and Bakewell, Pears just muddies the water.

I have teal blue pots and they are uranium

Didn't mean to confuse issues mentioning the other makers, my thinking was the theme of the set seems to be Rebecca at the well with her handmaidens a very popular religious, in particular Jewish theme.... might suggest the country of origin. ;)

I have obtained permission from the owner of the labelled pots to post permanent reference photos of them on the GMB once the auction has finished, and I will do so in due course.

Excellent, thanks Fred, that is very useful. The next task is to figure out who used that label! :)
