Currently on ebay at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181027362125?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

An unusual  pressed glass trinket set in uranium green.

•   Hexagonal tray (a rectangle with opposite corners cropped). 11 inches long. Base decorated with a crosswise heavily-ridged panel flanked by panels heavily ridged at right angles to it. Straight sides decorated alternately with horizontal and vertical ridges.

•   Pair of candlesticks with hexagonal bases (sides decorated alternately with horizontal and vertical ridges). Vertically ridged stems and sconces. 6 ½ inches tall.

•   A hexagonal small lidded trinket dish, the body decorated to match the tray; rectangular lid finial with horizontal ridges.  A matching larger trinket dish (presumably lacking lid).

•   Matching hexagonal ringholder.

ID’s or suggestions, please?
Has anyone else seen one like it, perhaps in a different colour, and maybe has photos to share?

(I have the permission of the ebay seller to post several photos of this set on GMB following the end of the auction, so at least there will be a permanent reference here).
