any id for trinket parts - possibly Cambridge Glass, USA?
« on: September 30, 2010, 06:40:02 PM »
the tray I bought because I thought straight lines seemed unusual, and the clear part set I grabbed a bit too hurriedly as I thought it was perhaps Krys-Tol.  Not my scene at all really, and they will go out again fairly quickly - but just before they do, anyone think they maybe of any particular interest.   I have looked through both Pamela's and Anne's pics., but don't think I saw them. :)

I can't find ID's for any of these pieces. Christine, where did you see the top one as Walther please?

thanks for your replies.    Accompanying the clear pieces was a small (about 75mm/3" long) scalloped-edged pin tray, with 'C' in a diamond - which I understand is for Cambridge in Ohio (US) - and think they ceased in about the mid '50's.    The woman at the boot sale would not let me buy this pin tray on its own, so had to purchase all of the pieces  -  and then had the thought about 'Krys-Tol'      Did still wonder whether these clear pieces might also have been US production - but now fairly sure they aren't 'Krys-Tol'.    They have a simplicity of design unlike the usual very fussy patterns of most trinkets that I see.   But then again, as we know, they could be from anywhere. :)

Christine, I'll go re-check, Ta!

Paul, my gut feeling was American, very Chippendale / Krys-Tol in style - I'll go rummage and see what I can find but it'll be a couple of days before I can - have a busy weekend ahead here.

Anne - yes, agree they do have a rather Chipendale 'ish look.   No hurry whatsoever :) as a MAN, I don't really 'do' trinkets sets (bit like 'swans' - they seem girlie ;))  -  just that occasionally I pick one up if it looks unusual.   I do of course have the 'Krys-Tol' book, so I will go back and have another look.   Thanks for your help as always, have a good weekend and hear from you next week perhaps.

 :hi: Paul,

Christine's right, here is Greta: http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Walther-1933.34+B6YmFja1BJRD0zNCZwcm9kdWN0SUQ9MTM0MyZwaWRfcHJvZHVjdD0zNCZkZXRhaWw9.0.html

If it really has to go, can I please purchase it for my collection?  :rah:

thanks Pamela  -  will send you an email off the board if I may - tomorrow please.   Trying to post something else desperately, so that I can then go and sit to watch tv with my OH.    She has this funny idea that I'm ignoring her by spending evenings talking to other women. ;)
Just been trawling your Master Books - re the clear part set above  -  and hadn't before realized that some of the early Brockwitz designs also had a simple sort of 'cathedral window' panelled look (with a curved top to the panel).   So guess it is possible that these clear pieces might even be Brockwitz.    Head ache now so will look again over the weekend - unless my wife demands even more of me. :phew:

Paul, the clear items could well also be a marriage - this pattern is global, who can tell ?  :-\

German only:
Walther: Rheingold and Roland
Streit: New York
Brockwitz: Chicago
Adlerhütten: # 9016
Bernsdorf: Ilse and Schlesien

Your tray is 'more even-sided' octagonal than any other I've seen and the star in the base is different from those in the boxes...

Same as 'wickerwork' patterns I gave up long ago to attribute these Chippendales  :pb: :pb: :pb:  :ooh:
