It's always and again a pleasure to meet people from around the world on GMB - all sharing their knowledge - thank you!  :-*

For years I've got these two small, non-uranium-green glass trays with wooden frames, each glass plate measuring 30x20 cms. I bought them in Eastern Germany, former GDR.

I think I spotted both on your wonderful pages, Simon - thank you!

The floral pattern is Pilkington JAPANESE

The very dark green rolled glass plate is either un-identified 1 MORISCO   or   RELIANCE china figured.glass_4

Any ideas regarding approximate age, please? My gut feeling was pre-WWII but now I guess these are much younger...

I am glad the page was of interest and useful to you. 
Japanese was a very popular design produced in several tints of green as well as other colours.  The original name for the "Morisco" pattern will turn up sooner or later in a catalogue or sample pack.  In the art-glass market this pattern is sold as both "Orient" and "Arabesgue".  Pilkington's Arabesque has already been positively identified and its not that, but I suspect it may turn out to be "Orient".

Sorry I did not answer your question....The British Archives, stored at Kew London, contain all the registrations for the patterns but unfortunately they have not been digitised.  Without registration numbers dating the patterns is tricky. The earliest reference to Japanese I found was 1908.  As for the age of the original "Morisco I have no idea.

Thank you very much, Simon  :-*
Regarding "Morisco": you definitely seem to rule out chinese "Reliance"?
