They are lovely Angela,  I used to collect this set when I first started to collect green glass...then when I 'migrated' to animals & birds,  I sold all my Jeannette Poinsettia on eBay.... who knows,  some of it may have 'done the rounds' and ended up with you. :)

I have some desert bowls and saucers - they were a present from my friend (now 80) whose mother brought them back from the states after she got married there.
I simply couldn't bring myself to part with a gift from Norma, ever.  :)
She was delighted to hear they are now collected and highly rated bits of pressed glass, although just a little alarmed to learn they are radioactive. (I've put her mind to rest over that.)  :)

 I have been lucky to find some in charity shops who don't seem to value it very much and the bits I bought on ebay weren't described as depression glass. I just found them when browsing green glass (which has to be my favourite). I have restricted myself to just two patterns one in pink, Cherry Blossom and this green Floral or Poinsettia. Why do they call it poinsettia when the pattern is of a passion flower ?  :)

So are the trinket tray and the candlesticks and possibly the tumblers depending on size.

Really  :o   I bought them on Ebay for a few pounds for the tray and the candlesticks about £5.00 I think. I see the trinket pot sold on Ebay for a vast amount !! The tumblers are 4 inches high. I love them they glow so brightly under UV.

Here are mine
The 4-in tumbler is not one of the valuable ones but I do have six of the scarce 3.5-in ones. My trinket pot went back to the Us for lots of dosh too.

Lovely collection...I would have loved that trinket pot to go with my tray !! I just read that the dresser set consisted of the tray and one 4" powder bowl and one 3" rouge pot. So I will be keeping a look out for them now  ;)
