A flamboyant clear glass (looks like pressed crystal) trinket set - pair of candlesticks, tray and lidded trinket pot.

The pot lid and body, and foot of each candlestick, are hexagonal, and the tray is octagonal .

The body, lid and large fan-shaped lid finial of the pot, and the foot and fan-shaped stem of the candlestick, are heavily decorated with alternating angular plain and rounded ‘feathered’ ridges.

The underside of the tray is decorated with angular radial plain ridges grouped in panels of four alternating with single ‘feathered’ ridges.

I’ve seen other examples of pieces from this set, and they have always been of clear glass.

ID’s, comments or suggestions, please?

Oh isn't that super, Fred! A lovely set, and this new Buder catalogue is providing answers to some of our mysteries...  I'm delighted! :)

By the way, there's a help post about how to do the short links as well: Short URL Links  8)

Thank you for the tip about the short links, Anne - it should enable me to tidy up my posts in future.

The old catalogues certainly are a fantastic resource - it's just such a shame that copyright on their reproduction seems to be so problematic.
