Hi Yesvil.  It looks to ME that what you got there is a china-pressing trinket set item by Brokwitz. I looked at my own complete sets and the molded glass is the same and you are correct to assume the painting has been added. Signed by the artist.  I will say though, that your item is large, but then again most trinket sets were sold as seperates. Hardly any of the range paterns "fit" upon their same patterend trays!  Hope this helps you!  Jazz :huh:

I'm not entirely convinced it's Brockwitz Chinapressung; there looks to be too many differences apart from the size. See here and here

Hmmm I'm with Christine... not Brockwitz Chinapressung.

Yes Christine & Anne . . .  On reflection I may have been to hasty, however even though the glass itself is larger than I have seen for the china-pressing trinket sets, including my own, I am aware that many of these items were produced by Brockwitz and not all can fit their tray.  As like numerous so-called trinket sets. Many of these being produced as saleable separates perhaps???  A full set of china pressing (for example) comprising of say one large, two small boxes with lids (once placed upon the tray, leaves no room for ANY other item from this pattern, such as the candlesticks etc.,   AND although the "Knop" and the "Lid handle" are indeed unlike the Brockwitz, I have perhaps based my own view of Yesvil's item on the fact that the additional paintwork compliments the mouldings, which at first glance appear to be china-pressing.  Not many have been item-recorded.   The moulded pattterns upon these Brockwitz items are rather shallow and subtle to say the very least.  It is indeed a quite fascinating item of glass that Yesvil has presented us all with!  :P

 :huh:  China Pressing, then it most certainly is not.  "Sorry to you all!".  Perhaps the butterfly will help you/us to identify the piece with more certainty?  I may be stating the obvious here, but Sowerby springs to mind.  Judging by the roses and all, the piece sure looks to be English now!  :spls:  Jazz

It's not Sowerby. To me it looks like some of the very modern pressed pieces found in giftware or homeware shops. Italian perhaps?
