Uranium pressed glass tray - Mystery Set 20
« on: April 20, 2012, 04:16:30 PM »
This is similar to patterns by both Walther and Rudolfova (Inwald), but I haven't seen any trays that match.

Walther certainly made trays with this asymmetric style of handle.

Any ideas?  Ta.

Unknown I think. Have a look at Anne's trinket site

Yes, still unknown at this time, Chris. It comes in various colours including a rather curious toffee / cinnamon brown (not amber!), which I'm hoping might be a useful pointer to who made it.

These are the other parts of the set:

Oh wow!  Are you collecting trinket sets, or just documenting them?  Sorry, I've been out of circulation for a while (not at Her Majesty's Pleasure, don't worry  ;))

The strange brown colour:  is it like the UGB Kingfisher bowl? Or more of a dark amber like the various bits of Czech that are often thought to be Rosice (I have a couple of rocket vases)?
Or cinnamon like Whitefriars?  Or completely different?

Hi Chris, nice to see you back!  :-*

I'm both collecting and documenting them. I have around 80 trays and 15 boxes of pots, candlesticks and other parts so far (probably around 300 items.)  I've probably got enough to be a small exhibition somewhere!  ;D

I'm also collecting images sent to me by kind folks here and elsewhere to add to the GTS site. It's a bit behind at the moment as I have little time to spare to update it, but it'll get done bit by bit.

I don't have a piece in this cinnamon colour yet, I have green and clear so far, so have only seen an image of the colour and it might be a trick of the camera and not cinnamon at all! ;D I've just checked and it is made in amber as well, as I found a set listed in amber on eBay.
