I've seen this pattern before (also in amber) and although it reminds me of Stölzle, I'm not convinced it is. There's a pattern with a similar shaped tray with a patterned base, on Pamela's site: http://pressglas-pavillon.de/toilettenservice/07024.html which I've seen attributed to Reich (although Pamela doesn't state this as the case), so my gut feeling (and that's all it is at this stage) is this is yet another Czech glassworks.

I can't imagine that one glassmaker would make two patterns so similar, and as we probably have two glassworks with similar styling, it's not beyond the ken for there to be a third. It was clearly a popular design of the time.

I've scoured the catalogues I have access to for it without success, but we do know there are still loads of catalogues and even glassworks we've not yet pinned down patterns for. One day it'll appear, with luck!

I'd be unhappy with an attribution to any maker at this stage.

Ah yes I remember seeing that set now you mention it Anne. It certainly looks like the same tray shape and even same size, and the pots and sticks show similarities also. As before we also know (or have assumed) that moulds were shared and/or sold, so another one to stay as just Czech for now like you say. :)

Thanks so much for researching it for me, you're a star!   :-*

Pressed glass trinket set (amber and pale blue examples).

Plain D-shaped tray (with short side-handles) is 13inches x  6½ inches.

The lidded pots have plain horizontal disc-shaped knobs/finials. The lids are grooved circumferentially, and the bodies have three sets of vertical ridges alternating with plain panels. Large lidded pot 3½ inches diameter; pair small lidded pots 3 inches diameter.

Pair of candlesticks 4¼ inches high x 3 inches square, with sets of vertical ridges at the angles.

Ringholder with circular base 3 inches in diameter. The base has upturned sides with 6 sets of equally-spaced vertical ridges (and alternate sets of ridges extending from the edge to the centre of the underside of the base).

ID, comments or suggestions, please?

Also for reference a set with the same D shaped tray but patterned and also similarities in the other pieces:
