bit of a postscript to the 'unknown part set above  -  and picked up another almost complete set mid week (lacking I think a lid only to one of the twin pots).   Whilst the tray shape and the star outline are different - the pin tray is again present, and it is impressed with the same 'C' at the part set (sorry, it's not in a diamond  -  it's in a triangle) - so, think this should prove conclusively that both sets are States manufacture by Cambride Glass Co. (1901 - 1957).      This most recent acquistion is slightly 'sun-purpled' - I'm seeing it everywhere now.   Question please........in the oval shaped pot there are two supports with cut outs to support what......anyone know.    The entire set is pressed - no grinding or cutting anywhere.
Hope of interest, and thanks for looking. :)

I would defer to your wisdom any day Pamela  -  but today is not the day :24:   No, I would have thought not  -  these little crescent cut outs appear to be specifically for something 'pencil' shaped possibly :huh:   But I don't really knowl. :)

Paul, how unusual to find more of the same pattern when it's such a stranger to us.  The dish with the supports: like Pamela I thought of soap too but the indents have me puzzled. Are the cut outs both the same size? It's hard to tell from your picture.

If these are Cambridge I think one of our US members would know... let me tweak the title to catch their eyes.

thanks girls  -  I'm sure you're right.   And here's me thinking that real ladies never needed to shave :24:  Am I right in thinking that this particular accompaniment to the set is unusual, or was it a States thing only. :)

I think what you have are table pieces that someone used for the vanity. The scalloped bowl or nappy could hold butter or berries. In old catalogs trays were offered alone as "candy trays" and of course people could use them however they wanted. Vanity sets here were perfume bottles, and a dish sometimes on a matching tray.
