NEW COLOUR FOR PAMELA EGYPTIAN LADIES TRAY
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:35:35 PM »
Hi, recieved this today and the colour is quite striking, i thought the colour may help to identify the maker, although i have never seen this colour in pressed glass before  :huh:
Any idea's anyone? the colour is much deeper than in the photo's and a solid colour, the pic's make it look mottled.

Don't think anyone has been able to identify the "three stooges"  yet, as Anne EB calls them. Can't quite work out the colour, is it a sort of turquoise blue? These are found in ordinary blue

Hi Christine, that's why i bought it, because of the colour, i will take a photo tomorrow in daylight, if you look at the colour wheel it is more like the Cyan Blue.
Thats why i thought it might give a clue as to maker, the colour is so strong !!

I know a maker has'nt been found, just thought this might be a clue, but i have to say i have never seen this colour in what i belive may be part of a trinket set.

Sue, it is the tray from a trinket set - we've seen the pots and candlesticks to go with it (somewhere on the board.) That colour is amazing - is it actually coloured through the glass or is it a surface treatment?

Hi Anne, the colour is through the glass, not a surface treatment, it is very dark blue, strangest thing??

Thanks Sue. I checked my reference picture collection for that pattern and I have pics of it in two shades of blue, two shades of green, amber, peachy-pink, and clear. I've no examples of the set of my own (yet!) but there are two sizes of powder pot, a pair of candlesticks, the tray you have, and a ringholder in the sets as far as I can tell.

Sorry, I still don't understand.  Is the glass all one color?  Are paler areas due to the thickness of the glass and not a change in color anywhere?  Interesting effect, at any rate.

The colour is cyan, BUT not under UV; it goes that lovely bright green. Try yours Sue. I picked up two powder bowls today: one with the kneeling lady and the small one with the intaglio face. They just looked bright blue inside at the boot sale and i bought them to sell on. It was when I was putting them in the car that I noticed the hint of green, out came the light and bingo! ;D
