Thanks Jayne, I spotted that last night and forgot to go back and sort it - I've moved it out now. I've also relocated a couple of other images - one of which was a m/s #27 candlestick shown with other pieces in the m/s #163 album - the colour looks like a spot on match, so that might give us another clue as to who made both sets if we can find a catalogue entry for either. 

Also, m/s #027 has three different candlestick styles shown with other pieces, so perhaps these were (as the late Bernard Cavalot was wont to say) mix and match sets depending on what the retailer wanted to offer for sale?

PS sorry I forgot to mark the dead link above as merged, Paul.  :-[

Another GTS Mystery set 27 in blue but with more conventional ‘stick’ candleholders.

Thanks Anne, well done sorting the images etc. You could be completely correct about the mix and match style of making up sets in this case however; what I would say about Fred's post regarding the conventional candlesticks is firstly they are 2 different types of candlestick, secondly I believe I recognise the candlesticks from 2 other Mystery sets.

Regarding the pink set in Fred's post the sticks appear to be well known as part of the podium shaped finial set (see link below).

Regarding the blue set in Fred's post, I believe the sticks in the set belong to the set in the second link below, they match very well stylistically. (I also believe this set could be another Junior Miss type set - the pots are tiny, I have some at home)

Thirdly I know from experience that the eBay seller (whose permission Fred obtained for the pink set images) sometimes matches trinket items colour wise and makes trinket set marriages, and lastly that I have seen the set with the looped sticks at least 10 times in all colours and clear.

Interestingly the tray in your Mystery set 163 appears to be the same tray as in the possible Junior Miss Set, so yes many of the pieces could be from the same maker, but regarding this one I also suggest the stick has been randomly added in a marriage.
