A trinket set in clear pressed glass. The unequal hexagonal tray has vertically-ribbed sides, and the base is decorated with a pattern of large diamonds. Perfume flasks and lidded pots of square section with four small ribbed feet to bas; the bodies are decorated with diamonds and vertical ribs to match the tray. The trinket pot lids and the stoppers for the perfume flasks have distinctive  asymmetric ‘plumed’ finials.

Also, a photo of a pair of candlesticks from a different source which I strongly suspect are in the same pattern.
