Found this in the back of the cupboard shame there are no pieces to go with it,Keith.

Actually not quite, it's the Davidson No.5 tray, one of two optional tray styles offered with the 8283 trinket set, as I said in an earlier post:
the 8283 - an 8 piece set consisting of tray, two pintrays, two short candlesticks, one large lidded pot and two small lidded pots, but with a choice of either the no.4 oval tray, or the fancier-shaped no.5 tray like yours.

Colour is Amber Cloud (not just Amber as that is a plain colour.)

Keith, there's a picture of an almost complete 8283 set  in Jade glass here:

For more on Cloud Glass colours see here:

The rest of the pieces in the set would also have been amber cloud, they wouldn't have mixed amber and amber cloud in a set.
