Great job :)

Next will be the Galleon set, also often being described as Walther. Don't know where the sellers got the info from, but I do strongly believe that this set is also made in Czechoslovakia.

Cheers

I think the 'galleon' set is often attributed to Walther because the sailng ships on the galleon set tray do have a passing resemblance to Walther's Segelschiff centrepiece, shown on Pamela's site at

though, without any firm evidence it's very much a case of '2 + 2 =5'.

Hi there

The colour / shade of the Galleon dressing table set is not right for Walther. The shape of the tray is very similar to the lady dressing set as discussed in this post and the moulding of these pieces are not as good as those made in Walther I have to say.

Walther Segelscliff centrepiece doesn't look like the Galleon dressing table set at all  :).

Cheers

... Just want to add, that I also have several of these sets. They have often been mistakenly termed as Egyptian pattern due to what appears to be pyramids, but is in fact a landscape. I only 'assume' that the image is of the three graces perhaps? They are very nice though, particularly the candlesticks which unlike the Walther Nymphen's, are oposed left & right. They are also noticeably smaller in height. As for the maker? A mystery.

... also, my sets are slightly different with their components. One has two small pots with lady lids and one larger, and with the intaglio lid as a trinket dish. The other set has no lady lidded pots, but the intaglio ones. Again, I presume that like with many sets, one purchased what they required from the range at time of manufacture??? erm, just a pause for thought: I never rely upon labels. Particularly Czech ones. They have been faked & forged even to this day and stuck upon all manner of glass, but that is not to say that I question the integrity of the seller. Just my own observation.

Art Deco Trinket/Dressing table set - Classical figures

Hi All,
Thought I would post a few pictures of this deco dressing table set, as far as I am aware this set hasn't been attributed to date, please correct me if I am wrong. Not my usual thing, however, nice to encounter fully complete.

All thoughts welcome, more than happy for photos to be used if desired by other GMB members.

Thanks
Greg
