GTS mystery set no. 3
« on: June 15, 2012, 08:10:53 AM »
This Ebay Listing shows 2 pieces from Mystery Trinket set 3 http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=96:mystery-set-3&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52

along with a Bagley Bamboo vase all in the same unusual Pinkish colour. I realise the colouring in the photo is somewhat dark, but it seems a good match. Perhaps Mystery Set 3 is Bagley?

But the green is nothing like Bagley green; it's a yellow green not a blue green

It's not a set which anyone's claimed as Bagley Jayne, Angela doesn't think it is, and as Christine says, the green is a very yellowy green, unlike my other Bagley pieces. You're right that the eBay pieces are a good match to the vase for colour though, so it's another of those pesky puzzles still to resolve.  I have ref pics of a whole range of colours, info which I must add to the page as well.

but this time in clear green uranium glass, and with candlesticks to perhaps aid ID.

id request for uranium tray
« Reply #5 on: October 14, 2012, 10:32:54 AM »
Seemed to be knee deep in trays yesterday morning, but kept hands in pockets until I saw this uranium one.     Bit busy just now so have looked at Pamela's examples only - although couldn't see it.      Interested to know if this is a named pattern, also factory if possible.        The rectangular area around the mitre decoration has been ground down  -  presumably this was to remove some sort of existing mould seam attachment possibly??       thanks for looking. :)

thanks for taking a look Anne  -  must admit that the frosted effect does make the uranium sets look very attractive.    Will keep mine for the time being, just in case someone does find a maker's name. :)

Amber set (which would seem to be complete - unless there is a ringholder found anywhere) and a part pink set. I've also seen the tray in blue.

I quite like both the frosted and the unfrosted ones of these, Paul... but the frosted one is very tricky to get good photos of, as the frosting seems to confuse the camera's focusing ability. :(
