Mystery Trinket Set 41
« on: May 05, 2011, 01:31:36 PM »
Anne, I was wondering if your mystery set 41

http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=198:mystery-set-41&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52

is your Libochovice Pattern no 1700

http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=147&Itemid=143

The candlesticks look slightly different, but the pots and tray look like a possible match?

That was what I thought at first too, but there are several other differences so I think it's not the same pattern now. The lids of mine have a pattern which matches their bases, but the Libochovice 1700 has a different star pattern on the lids.

I think I may have found a Lib. example (they are all boxed up at the moment whilst we're doing some sorting out so I can't check). I need to unpack everything and take more photos as I have a lot more than is shown on the site now. I also need a large empty room and 2 or 3 free days to get through it all.  :help:

Oh that's a shame I was hoping to solve a mystery there!  ;D

Aww, you sound like you're under pressure Anne *hugs*.

I know the feeling about wanting a large empty room, and a spare few days to myself!

Hi Anne, it looks like mystery set 41 could be a Walther, this one on Ebay has labels,

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290568573521&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

also appears in 1931 and 1933 catalogues. Prismen?

http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Walther-1931.116+B6YmFja1BJRD0xMTYmcHJvZHVjdElEPTUxNTImcGlkX3Byb2R1Y3Q9MTE2JmRldGFpbD0_.0.html

http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Walther-1933.34+B6YmFja1BJRD0zNCZwcm9kdWN0SUQ9MTM2NCZwaWRfcHJvZHVjdD0zNCZkZXRhaWw9.0.html

Your candlesticks look different to the catalogues and Ebay listing though, possibly a redesigned candlestick? (I read somewhere Walther redesigned the "Mary" candlestick 1936 1937) or from another set?

Also noticed a similar candlestick in the catalogue named "Flora" same shape, but missing the design on the base part in the drawing.

p.s. How went the finding 3 spare days and an empty room?  :X:

The tray design is different too though. Anne also has the candlestick in green uranium, and that looks good for a Walther shade.

Are we agreed then that the pots are a match with the catalogue? The Ebay listing candlesticks also look like a match with the catalogue, and Anne's tray and the Ebay tray look pretty similar to each other too, or am I missing something?

p.s. Where is Anne's uranium candlestick?

The tray is also a match for the Walther Roland cloud glass one here http://www.cloudglass.com/walpots.htm (which I saw later). It seems likely that the catalogue did not match the reality, which is not unknown, or the design was modified.

I suspect Anne's U one is in a box waiting to be photographed, or it is in one of my boxes because I didn't give it to her after all.

Oh I see now about the candlestick, I thought I was missing it on her site.

It seems catalogues not matching the reality was quite common, (we found Century Margaret candlesticks didn't match the picture too well) so we could be on to an ID here. :)

Bump for Anne before the Ebay listing with labels disappears. :)

Thank you :kissy: I'd forgotten this one! I've emailed the seller and asked if we can keep copies of the pics on the GTS website for reference.   :X:

I've still not been able to get to the boxes to check what's still awaiting pics here... which is  not being helped by not being able to lift anything due to this trapped nerve in my back.  :cry:

I've decided that once the 2 events I'm handling at the moment are over I'm taking some time to catch up on the GTS stuff!   :thup:
