Clear pressed glass trinket set with tray, 2 candlesticks and a single lidded pot.

The candlesticks have a distinctive 'stirrup' shape, and the lidded pot has unusual radially-ribbed finial (rather like an upside-down open Chinese fan). I'm simply presuming that the tray is a match, but the radial ribbing certainly echoes the decoration on the other pieces.

I've seen similar candlesticks many times before (but I can never remember them being attributed to a particular manufacturer).

ID's, opinions or suggestions, please?
