thanks for your valuable reply Janice. What intrigued me was the fact that twice within a matter of weeks I had found what had seemed two identical trinket sets (or at least parts of) both of which included one of these small scalloped bowls or nappys - so of course being a bit dim I had rushed to the conclusion that the complete set was designed to deliberately have one. However, as you suggest, probably not intentionally designed as such, and just an optional add on. I really know nothing of these things, but was also intrigued by the fact that one of these sets has something I had not previously seen i.e. the lidded container believed to be for the 'lady's razor'. thanks again. I couldnt purposfully collect these things - the footprint is way too big for me - which bit of a shame, as in my travels I see some really beautiful part sets and trays that are works of art. thanks again.
