A pressed glass trinket tray in uranium green. A sort of rectangular 'dumbell shape, with offset compound handles to short sides (the handles being made up of a flat horizontal plate with a thicker octagonal vertical section).  30cm overall x 13cm.

Also a pink trinket tray in the same pattern.

The pink tray came with a lidded trinket pot of a similar colour and similar stylistic details (but which may not necessarily be a match, of course). The pot base has raised lettering to the undeside near the rim reading 'CHOLSLOVAKIA'.

IDs, suggestions or comments, please.

Photos of a blue lidded pot like the pink one (still not entirely sure if matching the tray or not). Shows that the pink lidded pot had a broken lid finial.

Plus photos of a  blue perfume flask to match the lidded pot (and showing the Czech marking to actually be CZECHOSLOVAKIA).

I don't have the evidence that this tray matches any of the pots I've seen it with so far Fred...  I've seen it with four different ones so far including the ones above. :)  I've not seen these pots before though... but I'm pretty sure the tray is Czech...

Yet another set showing the dumbell-shaped tray with the lidded pots in the same pattern as those above.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by heritagegroup2008).

This amber set shows that there was also a matching perfume atomiser.

In fact, the perfume flask and the atomiser still retain traces of their original printed foil labels, the label on atomiser revealing the word BOHEMIA .
