Orange & black tango glass dressing table set
« on: September 13, 2012, 03:37:40 PM »
A striking (presumably 1930s) orange & black tango glass dressing table set.

Recently sold on eBay for £63.

I would love to have seen it with a matching tray.

Thank you for the interesting links, Dirk.

Because of the colours, I had assumed that the set would have been Czech or Bohemian, but certainly the French shapes shapes and especially the stoppers and lid finials, are remarkably similar to the eBay set.

Just such a shame that was no tray with this set.

That looks Bohemian but it's a pale imitation of the other one; wishy washy orange and black enamelling not black glass

In all the above sets the glass seems to be solid (uncased).

Here is a (presumably part) set with pieces of similar shape, but the tray, comb or pin tray, lidded pot and perfume flask are of cased glass, with a transparent honey-coloured outer layer over an opaque white body producing an attractive yellowish-amber or citrine appearance.
