Davidson 340 pattern, Kaz.   May I add your photos to my Glass Trinket Sets reference site please? So far I only have the candleholder shown in this pattern. Full credit would be given of course. :)

Nice as it is, bear in mind that it is incomplete. The pot should have a lid and there should be two of them, there should also be another candlestick and a pin tray.

In their book Davidson Glass a history, Chris & Val Stewart shows the 340 set as a large tray, 2 pots, 2 candlesticks and the pintray. The text doesn't clarify if the pots were made in 2 sizes as they often were - this usually means a set was 1 large and 2 small pots, but we've no such information about the 340 as yet.  (But watch this space!  ;D)

Quite often the sets didn't all fit the tray anyhow Kaz, they would have been spread about the dressing table with the tray often holding, e.g. a hairbrush and comb or other suchlike. I remember my mother (now age 80) and grandmother using them like that. :)
