Candlesticks with elongated hexagonal bases, and stems of hexagonal cross section.

3 circular lidded pots (1 large & 2 small), the most distinctive feature being the flattened lid finials which have a stepped ‘podium’ top profile with the centre section vertically ribbed.

Photos of a part set in pink, showing that the base of the tray is not, in fact plain, but gently 'quilted' diagonally on the underside.

Unidentified trinket set

Hi I'm having difficulty trying to find the maker of this set. It consists of 2 candlesticks with diamond shape bases & fluted column stems. The tray has a diagonal design with end holders similar to those made by Walther. Can anybody  recognise it?

Welcome to the GMB.

This trinket set pattern (in several colours) has been discussed on the GMB at
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,50039.msg282700.html#msg282700

Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, a firm attribution is still awaited.

Fred.

captaintee welcome to the board. I've merged your query into the earlier topic Fred referred to in his reply above to keep all the images and info about this design in one easy to find place. :)

discusses and shows, among other things, the similarity of the basic shape of the pieces making up various Walther sets. Of particular significance to this topic thread are:

A green uranium glass Walter Mary variant set with short candlesticks having an elongated hexagonal base and a prominent horizontal ring or platform between the top of the stem and the candleholder cup; a tray with short two straight sides and two ‘curved’ sides, and a sort of diagonal quilted or chequerboard base with the ‘squares’ scalloped underneath; pot lid finials like a flattened fishtail with 3 ‘scoops’ at the top.

Walther Poseidon set with the overall shape of the tray being similar to the Walther Mary variant set, and the overall shape of the candlesticks and pot lid finials also similar (though they obviously differ in the detail of decorative surface pattern, and the top edges of the Poseidon pot lid finials are flat).

The sets shown in this current topic thread have so many features in common with the Walther Mary and Walther Poseidon sets that it they just HAVE to have been made by Walther – don’t they?

Fred.
