I just spotted this whilst looking for trinket sets pieces, but it doesn't look like anything I can find in Bagley Glass (Bowey, Parsons and Parsons), does anyone recognise it please? (It looks too deep for a trinket set tray as the seller says, but what else might it be for? My dearly beloved said it looks like a serving dish - pheasant pie was mentioned - but I think he's just hungry and hopeful!!!  ;Dhttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280291148563

It's a serving dish with handles and feet, seems a little exotic for English. Australian  :huh:

whom of you is going for it?
I won't because it is definitely not German, I think
but you should rescue it for further investigations, because it is pressed, please

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

I didn't as I went out to a meeting after I posted earlier, and have only just returned home, and the auction's ended. I'm intrigued to know who this was made by though. If Australian perhaps Cathy B will know it?

It is gorgeous, Cathy. Thanks for ruling out Australia, what else might it be I wonder?

That's so pretty!  I love the bird of paradise - made me think Australia, too!

Can't be for any type of pie. How on earth would you make the pastry shape properly?

I doubt it'd be oven-proof either somehow, Carolyn. Perhaps more a server for cold foods/salad etc...?

Or a tray for a pitcher and tumblers?  Wouldn't it be nice to have a matching set?!
