 :hi: and beg to apologize, I kept you waiting - had a busy week.

Thank you for investigating my pages so thoroughly  :clap:

Anne is right, the trinket set is still unsafe with its attribution to Libochovice! Same as is the vase which also appears in Rosice catalogue 'before 1958' of  Marcus Newhall's Sklo Union book CD.

However, when comparing these items and putting them all together, I strongly feel that these were designed by the same person for either Libochovice or Rosice.
Handling the glass, touching it makes an easy but risky assertion, I know  :pb:
I would not dare to judge from the photo of Mike's blue powder pot, very sorry  :-\

 :ooh:

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

The lady that gave me the pot have given me another larger pot and the tray and they are obviously all from the same set as the birds are all sat on branches and the textured areas all are the same

I would love to find the candlesticks now and thanks for everyone that has contributed

‘Lovebirds’ / doves / birds trinket set

Despite much discussion, the attribution of the pieces still seems to be unresolved (though Libochovice or Rosice are mentioned as strong contenders).

I have reference photos of odd pieces from sets in amber, blue, pink and green uranium glass, but now I have come across what appears to be a complete set for the first time (which happens to be in green uranium glass) and the owner has granted me permission to show it on the GMB (and for Anne and Pamela to re-use images for their sites if they so wish). [All the images are © vintage-or-antique].

http://www.black-poppy.co.uk/Miscellaneous_&_Unknown_-_Dressing_Table_Sets/fs_68.jpg
shows what is supposed to be a complete set, but actually lacks the matching pin dish. This set is attributed to Libochovice.

Still no definitive attribution, presumably?

I’ve never seen a picture of a ringholder to match this set – now I’m just waiting for someone to show a photo of one to make my day!

Fred.

Thanks for merging Anne,

The matching vase to Pamela's set is in the 1925/8 catalogue http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Libochovice-1925-1928.118.0.html


The birds on the vase in the Libochovice 1925/8 catalogue do seem very similar to the candlesticks I agree.
