Thanks to Pamela showing the S. Reich & Co. ca.1934 musterbuch online, I can now identify some clear glass trinket set pieces on file as from Reich’s set 8974, illustrated on page 65:

The first photo shows the really distinctive tray, candlesticks, large lidded pot, and ringholder.

The second photo is from a separate source

and confirms identity of the pieces as in the first photo. In addition, there are two smaller lidded pots that would seem to match the larger pot, my only reservation being that the lid finials on the smaller lidded pots are basically circular in cross-section whereas the finial on the lid of the larger lidded pot is ‘squashed’ rather that circular in section (though the illustration in the musterbuch does not assist in clarification).
