A green uranium pressed glass trinket set  (or perhaps just a part set). 

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

The hexagonal tray has a base decorated with an 8-armed star, the horizontal and vertical arms having a single central longitudinal ridge, and the two diagonal arms being heavily cross-ridged.

The candlesticks have a horizontally-ridged stem, and a circular, slightly-domed foot decorated with alternating radial and circumferential ridges.

The lidded pot has a body and lid decorated with bi-directional ridges to match the feet of the candlesticks, and the lid has a distinctive crested finial with a heavily-ridged border

The pin dish matches the design of the tray.

Looks very Czech or German to me – does anyone have an attribution for it, please, or photos of similar sets with more pieces or in different colours?

Fred.

Some more photos showing the pieces in detail and that the glass reacts strongly to UV light.

A couple of photos of a lidded pot in the same pattern, but this time in clear glass.

Photos of a part set from yet another source showing that there is presumably a pair of small lidded pots to accompany the large lidded pot. Incidentally, the photo makes the pieces look as if ther are bi-coloured (pale uranium green and clear) but I am assured that this is simply as a result of the particular background and lighting setup and that the pieces are, in fact, uniformly uranium green.
