The lidded pots have plain horizontal disc-shaped knobs/finials. The lids are grooved circumferentially, and the bodies have three sets of vertical ridges alternating with plain panels. Large lidded pot 3 inches diameter; pair small lidded pots 3 inches diameter.

Pair of candlesticks 4 inches high x 3 inches square, with sets of vertical ridges at the angles.

Ringholder with circular base 3 inches in diameter. The base has upturned sides with 6 sets of equally-spaced vertical ridges (and alternate sets of ridges extending from the edge to the centre of the underside of the base).

ID, comments or suggestions, please?
