Nice set!

Anne, the pots and sticks seem to match your mystery set 18: http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=169:mystery-set-18&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52 which I have long considered may well be Sowerby County, since I have seen the set a few times in frosted white and uranium with these same sticks pots and tray. I know the sticks don't match the catalogue picture, but maybe a design change to the sticks happened at some point?

I'm pretty sure this is all Sowerby County yes. The candlesticks are a similar shape to those of the Sowerby Minor set, but are a different pattern. I believe that either the County set had updated candlesticks or the set as shown in the catalogues wasn't issued with the sticks show. Have we ever seen the catalogue version of the County candlestick?

The mystery set 18 needs to be updated to reflect this.

No I've never seen a catalogue depiction, probably updated or unshown sticks is likely.
