Been to the Flea Market again and came back with this dear little ring dish, it has a very strong glow under UV and is in perfect condition but I have been unable to identify it from Pamela or Anne's webpages. Can anyone help ? :D

A trinket set in pressed green uranium glass, comprising a tray, pair of candlesticks, a large lidded pot and a pair of small lidded pots.

Measurements:         
tray  11¾ x 8  inches
candlesticks:  6inches high
large pot:  4 inches diameter x 4 inches high (including finial & lid)
small pots: 3 inches diameter x 3¼ inches high (including finial & lid).

The unequal hexagonal tray is probably the most distinctive feature, with the base decorated with an all-over patter of small squares bordered by triple parallel ‘pointed wavy’ or scalloped lines. This wavy line pattern is also found on the regular hexagonal lids of the pots and the regular hexagonal tops of the candlestick bases.

A set in clear glass (this time with the small pots lacking their lids).

I am a bit confused now since I thought... I had the matching ring holders (although in green and apricot/pink satin). But in your description you are talking about hexagonal and those are nonagonal.....  but the wavy/scalloped decoration looks simular to me. So, nevertheless  2 pictures.
If anybody wants to use the photos, feel free to do so.

Very nice ring trees Eugenie, I would say they are a match.

Frosted uranium trinket set

Has anyone any idea of the manufacturer of this lovely trinket set. I have owned the ring dish for a while and recently bought the tray and candlestick. They all glow very strong under UV but the ring dish is a lighter shade of green. It is a nice quality set and heavy. Any suggestions welcome :)

Already discussed in some detail on GMB at

Attribution apparently still not resolved.
