A selection of trinket pots in amber and green pressed glass, all apparently in the same pattern.

All the domed lids have a flattened octagonal finial (with a depression the centre) atop a flattened horizontal circular boss. The lids and bodies of the pots are decorated with wide tapering ribs of smooth glass alternating with panels of stippled glass.

The base of one of the pots has smooth horizontal side handles.

The smooth ribs alternating with stippled panels remind me of the Walther Hubertus and Greta pots, but the finials are different.

IDs, comments or suggestions, please?
