I have acquired a pressed glass vanity set from my family, I am trying to research it and found details of Service 42000, Brockwitz Chinapressung. My set has the same tray , 1 large and two small trinkets (1 of the small trinkets has a lid missing) and matches the Brockwitz Service 42000 except mine is not coloured glass. Do you know if they made it in uncoloured glass or where I can find out more information about this set?

Welcome to GMB !

Here is the tray in their 1931 catalogue

Brockwitz' Terms & Conditions state 'hell' = clear white as generously available colour, and as the shape and pattern is so special, definitely Brockwitz, I'd say

Your set is the first I see in white, so thank you for sharing!

Hi and welcome to the board. I've collected some details about this set on the Glass Trinket Sets website here:
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=38&Itemid=162 but I've not seen any examples in colourless glass. Could you add photos of yours for us to see please? If you need help with adding pics please just ask below, or drop me an email directly. :)

Many Thanks Pamela & Anne, Ive added the photo now and looked through the information you have kindly collected, it says Known colours are:
 
rosé, seegrün, luftblau, goldgelb, igual  (pink, green, blue, amber, uranium green)

Is there anywhere where I could find out if indeed they did produce a clear glass version?

Your pic is much too small for us to see it. You need to make it about 700 pixels along its longest side and then the board will make the smaller thumbnail for you and we can see the details. If you're having trouble resizing pics to fit the board do feel free to send me copies by email and I'll sort and add them for you. glass @ yobunny.co.uk will reach me - close the spaces round the @ first though!

The colours I give are taken from the catalogue produced by Brockwitz, so are known colours. If you have them in clear too then that adds more to what we know. :)

Hi Jill, yes have just picked them up today.  Here they are for you:

May I also add them to the GTS website for reference please? Full credit for the pics would be given of course.

And I missed that Pamela above, who has access to lots of catalogues too, says that clear is a colour option, but as she's not seen one before they may have been less popular than the coloured versions?

Hi Anne

Many thanks for sorting the pics for me and yes of course you may add them to the GTS website.  Thanks Pamela for more information, I wonder has anyone else out there got a white one to share ?  I'm Going to get an idea of its value today as I have no idea - has anyone?
