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

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?!
