Part frosted trinket set pieces in 2 colourways – ID, please?
« on: October 14, 2011, 06:28:31 PM »
was hoping one of the trinket collectors might be generous and save me trawling through miles of images :)    Quite a deco looking style, so presumably from somewhere in the 1930's, and I have looked on Pamela's pavillon site, but couldn't see the design - ( I haven't checked the Masterbuchs, however).     Sincere thanks in advance for looking, and if this proves unknown at present, I will look some time in the coming days. :)

Unknown to me so far too Paul... this is a pattern I don't recall seeing at all before.

Uncommon for sure! :) There's an awful lot of sets out there we ain't found makers for yet though, so don't get over-excited.  :ooh:

nope  -  you're right of course, rather a slightly less than rational remark of mine  -  actually these things don't excite me in the real sense  -  I just tend to pick up the odd example only if the design happens to look deco  ish.     Had I the space - would have been great to have these things all lined up along the plate rail - would make for a great and novel form of decoration.

Not one I recognise either Paul, and can we move this to the Trinket Section please?

We can and we shall Jayne, and thanks to Paul's kindness this lovely set has migrated north to my house, but despite a lot of searching in catalogues and more than a little drooling over the pieces, I've still not managed to identify it... but I'm still searching!  8)

Lucky lady, Paul is a generous man!

Re the set, I think I've seen the sticks and tray once and only once on Ebay seems quite rare, no concrete attributions though.

A pale amber part-frosted glass trinket tray, 11¾ inches x 9½ inches. Octagonal (a diamond with clipped corners really); the base of the tray has a central ‘diamond with concave sides’ flanked by 2 sets of curved chevrons.

A matching short candlestick, the base measuring 3 x 4 inches, and 3 inches high.

A matching lidded trinket pot 3 ¼ inches high, the lid having a distinctive curved handle.

(permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by eileen_dover_it).

ID’s, comments or suggestions, please.

I also have a tray and candlesticks to show in green uranium glass in the next post.

Fred.
