Hi all
Starting this off here because I have a feeling this may be Bagley. I have the pattern in both a plate & a bowl which I know to be Bagley but I have never seen the candlesticks before & thought I had seen most Bagle sticks.
Hope someone can help
Thanks in advance

Not something I've seen before, although the colour looks good and so does the low form. Doesn't appear in the Bagley book though.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for looking, I have been searching myself & I would have expected to find a trinket set in the fish scale pattern if it ever did exist but I can find nothing, Im begining to have second thoughts about it being Bagley.

Another which made a fish scale pattern was the former Vincent Schreiber glassworks at Nemsova (part of the Sklo Union conglomerate), but I've not seen candlesticks or trinket sets in this pattern by them (so far!)

Amber trinket set with ‘fish scale’ decoration’ – ID, please?
« Reply #4 on: February 21, 2013, 05:36:34 PM »
An amber pressed glass trinket set:
Rectangular tray; 10½ x 7 x 1¼ inches
Pair candlesticks;  height 4 x Base 3½ inches
Large lidded trinket pot;  height 4 inches x Diameter 3½ inches
Small lidded trinket pot; height 3½ x diameter 3inches
Ringholder; height 2½ x diameter 2½  inches

Distinctive base to the tray, and ‘fish scale’ sides (rather like that on some Bagley pieces). The most distinctive feature of the candlesticks and lidded pots is the ‘fish scale’ decoration’ to match that of the tray sides.

ID, comments, or suggestions, please?

Some photos of the tray from the set, this time in pink glass.

So, amber, blue and pink colourways  so far - photos of pieces in other colours, anyone?

Presumably still no attribution.

Actually, on checking my files, I find that I have some photos of pieces in green uranium glass.

A bit of a mystery this time – another ‘fish scales’ set in green uranium glass, but this time with a quite different tray. The straight sides of the tray measure approx. 20cm.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by kuvuandsimba).

At first sight I thought that the tray was a mis-matched piece from the Sowerby ‘Sunray’ set because the overall pattern on the tray base looks quite similar, but the shape of the tray is quite different, and the panel in the angle of the tray, the source of the ‘rays’, is patterned with ‘fish scales’ to match the rest of the set (whereas the Sowerby Sunray tray has a clear panel for the ‘sun’).

I can’t recall seeing a tray quite like this before – has anyone else seen a similar tray, or perhaps has this tray in a different colour to show?

Fred.

Oooh that's interesting, Fred.... I've no recollection of seeing that style of tray before either...  but it reflects the shape of the pot finial very well.

The fan shaped tray shows some striking resemblances to the Sowerby Sunray Tray.
