Is this a variant of the Libochovice 1860-184 trinket set?

Some photos of a pink glass trinket set comprising a tray, pair of candlesticks, lidded pot, and a pin tray/dish.

(Permission for the re-use of these photos on the GMB and GTS sites granted by jackson47-123). 

The lidded pot looks like the Libochovice pots 1862/1863 from the Libochovice 1860-1864 set shown on the GTS site at
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms3/czechoslovakian/libochovice/1860-1864
and the candlesticks appear to be short versions of the Libochovice 1861 candlesticks shown on the same page.

The tray is obviously completely different in design and there is no pin tray shown on the GTS site.

I think that this could well be a variant version of the Libochovice 1860-1864 set (rather like there are several versions of the Walther ‘Mary’ set).

I have more photos of a similar pink set from a different source that contains the same short candlesticks, variant tray, and pin tray, and I will add them to a follow-up post for reference.

Does anyone have photos to show of a similar variant set (or sets) in other colours to show, please?

Comments or ideas, please?

Fred.

Firstly, a photo of the whole set shown as individual pieces in my initial post.

Secondly, a photo of a similar pink set from a different source for comparison, but showing 3 lidded pots  from the Libochovice 1860-1864 set (1x1862 + 2x1863).

Thirdly, a photo from another source showing the tray, short candlesticks, a large lidded pot and a small lidded pot (also in pink glass).
