request for trinket tray for id.

Here is the second tray :)       An attractive pale blue colour, and the motif made me think of the boy scouts ;D

This one's still a mystery Paul. Earlier discussion here:

thank you Anne.
I wonder if the stylized Fleur de Lis has any bearing on origin i.e. possibly French?         I certainly think that Mr. Bagley's idea of giving his secretary one is a good idea, and should be made compulsory.

The French connection occurred to me too Paul for two reasons, the "Fleur de Lys" being one and secondly it looks as though it may have some similar attributes to Anne's Mystery set 46 set of which she found a piece with a "MADE IN FRANCE" label. I have handled neither set though so it's just an idea going by photos.

 :-\ Ahhhh but.... she said, thoughtfully.... the fleur-de-lys also occurs on Inwald items, so not necessarily a French clue.

The weight of this set is a clue though as it's one of the heaviest I have, and the glass is thicker than most other sets - certainly much more so than the ones that are marked Made in France as they are much less substantial.

I'm still idly considering Poland as well as France and the UK and other places!

Still a mystery to me, Mel, but still looking. :)
