Light Blue Trinket Set - Updated Pictures

I was sold this as Walther Greta, but after looking at Pamela's site I don't think that identification is correct.  Another one of my finds this week  :wink:

Whole Set

trinket showing pattern

Candlestick

body of candlestick

Foot of candlestick

If not Greta, any idea the maker and/or pattern?

Connie, this is one of my items I'm having for years and cannot find the maker - it just drives me crazy sometime!

Glad to see another one with this three stepped foot and six sided matt section!

let's wish us luck here  :roll:

Yes, Pamela the ring holder and 2 trinket boxes have 8 tab feet. The tops of the trinkets have a 8 ray design.  The tray has a 12 ray design.

I will try to take better pictures tomorrow, including one of the tray.

Another view of tray

The pattern is moulded into the glass, a pebbled texture.  It is not applied.

Hey Cheri  8)

Doesn't this set remind you of your Ollie May set?  Not the same pattern but the same color, same layout of pieces (I am missing 1 small trinket box) and the trays are very similar.

Hi Connie

yes, there are similarities! although the Ollie May is all transparant ice blue.
I have actually just upgraded my photo of the whole set

I KNOW I have seen either your set or something very similar to it Connie, and have actually been trying to jog my memory on where. Will certainly get back to you if I remember.

BTW the Ollie May is on page 393 of HMW 2

Thank you, Cheri.  I would be appreciative of any information that you uncover.

Yes, I looked in HMW 2 and saw Ollie May.  HMW tended to make up names for pieces she didn't know.  I tend to think both Ollie May and my set are either British or Continental, not American.  :?

I contacted the person from which I bought this set.  They claim the covered dishes and candlesticks are pictured in the 1934-35 August Walther & Sons catalogue.

Does anyone have those catalogues that could  check this information for me please?

I dont have any Walther catalogues...maybe Pamela or Glen can help there.

I did want to mention that my Ollie May set sold yesterday! :) Sad to see it go, but real happy with the sale. 8)
