butterfly candlesticks ID = Bagley 3003
« Reply #10 on: September 08, 2010, 08:10:25 PM »
Had a mooch around the net and cannot find anything that resemble these.  I do remember acquiring a pair of these  many moons ago, but I can hardly remember what I did yesterday let alone many moons ago. Any ideas?  Swinging towards Czech

We believe these to be Bagley pattern 3003.  I have a pair of them, and Angela Bowey and I compared them with the Bagley butterfly pieces in the Pontefract Museum collection, as shown here:
http://www.wakefieldmuseumcollections.org.uk/index.asp?page=item&filename=bagley.mdf&itemId=WAKGMP%20:%20P2005.492 and they seem to be a match pattern-wise.

They are not shown in the Bagley Glass book by Angela Bowey and Derek and Betty Parsons but there's an earlier topic about them here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3980.0.html

TC asked if we'd confirmation of this ID, and the answer is yes. It's in Angela Bowey's Bagley Glass (3rd edition, page 58) and was included after Angela attended an event with ex-Bagley workers where she discussed it with them, and where several workers confirmed it as being made by Bagley, probably carrying the no. 3003, to match the Bagley butterfly lamp. Pontefract Museum have had a set listed as Bagley for a while, which is what prompted the discussion.

Here's an amber tray in the same pattern.

P.S., great to have a dedicated 'trinket sets' section.

Thanks Fred, is that the big tray or the small pintray? 

Thank you also for all your wonderful pics that keep arriving. I'm slowly working my way through them to see what we have and what helps ID other pieces, but my time is limited due to work commitments atm.

Sorry, Anne, forgot to put the size on the post.

It's the large tray (13 x 10 inches).

Thanks Fred, that's useful to know. I have the candlesticks to match this (in clear) but haven't seen any more of it anywhere yet.
