Clear Amber pressed glass trinket set (or most of it - perhaps missing a small lidded pot? ) in clear amber.  The pots are certainly similar, if not the same, as the green one shown in Anne's Mystery Set 09.

http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=93:mystery-set-9&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52

Dimensions of the amber set:
Tray 29x22cm
candlesticks 14cm tall
Large trinket box 12cm high x 10.5cm across
Small trinket box 10cm high x 9 cm across
Ringholder 29cm tall x 22cm across

Opinions, IDs, suggestions etc., please?

Hi Fred! A mystery no more. :) Mystery #09 we now know is Brockwitz #5942 pattern, (it's been waiting to be updated), the ringholder is pattern #5940, the candlesticks are pattern #5946.

The trays appear to match the one which Jayne asked about here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,43097.0.html but isn't shown as being related to the 5900 series set, so I can't add more above that as yet.

Thank you, Anne - nice work.

I will pass on the ID to the original image 'donor', and I'm sure she will be delighted.
