Yay! Well together we appear to have a whole set! Getting good photos is extremely time consuming I know. Please use the peach pot pic on your Trinket Site if needed. :)

The biggest issue is finding the space as well at the moment, as my house is crammed full of boxes with nowhere to unpack them to until I get stuff sorted out.

Aww that's a shame, don't worry, you'll get there in the end! :)

Here's a set in 'peachy' pink with what appears to be a well-matched tray (for colour anyway).

Any help?

Measurements of the pieces in the peachy pink set from my last post are:
tray – 2cm x 29.5cm w x 20cm d approx.;  lidded trinket pot – 13.5cm x 11.5cm approx.;  candlesticks – 8cm h x 5.5cm rim diameter approx.; small trinket tray – 3cm x 8.5cm x 5.5cm approx.

I think the set could easily be described as of ‘bright diamond design’.

Is there any more evidence or opinion yet as to whether this really is a strong candidate for the elusive Sowerby Maid set ?

I’ve seen several similar sets (or pieces from it) on auction sites recently attributed to Bagley (and one as Bagley Victoria 1032-2, which it patently is not).

With not quite half-closed eyes, though, it seems to me that there are some similarities to the candlesticks and lidded pot of Bagley Victoria 1032 -2 set shown by Anne at
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=106&Itemid=72
although the differences are quite striking…  The tall knob on the pot lid of this set is faceted, and each facet decorated with small raised diamonds. The lid itself also has a different imitation cut pattern. Although of seemingly similar shape to Bagley Victoria 1032-2, the candlesticks from this set have a different imitation cut pattern and the shape of the foot is not the same - indeed, these candlesticks still look to me to be just the same as Sowerby 2501.

If not the Sowerby Maid set, might it perhaps be a Bagley Victoria 1032 – set 3 (written with tongue partially in cheek)?



I’m now adding a photo of the set in sea-green from the eBay link in Jayne’s first post of this thread (in case the eBay link disappears eventually), and also a photo of a part set in clear to show it comes in at least four colours.
