GTS Mystery Set 47 with variant tray pattern
« on: November 10, 2012, 02:51:44 PM »
Photos of two part trinket sets, both having candlesticks as shown in Anne’s GTS Mystery Set 47 at
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=203:mystery-set-47&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52

Anne’s photos show rectangular trays with ‘toothed’ edges to the slightly flared sides, and bases with a ‘garter star’ centre within a clear border.

My photos show trays with the same basic shape, but with the bases decorated with starburst centres having rays extending right to the edges of the base.

Presumably a simple variant, but does it help with the attribution of the sets?
