GTS Mystery Set 04 – more pieces to aid trinket set ID.

GTS Mystery Set 04 – more pieces to aid trinket set ID.

Photos from 2 different sources (so presumably no mismatched pieces) of green pressed glass trinket sets with lidded pots in accord with those of Anne’s GTS Mystery Set 04
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=97:mystery-set-4&catid=28:mysteries&Itemid=52

Now lidded pots in 2 sizes, candlesticks, distinctive tray, and ringholder. The inside edge of the tray is marked ‘Czechoslovakia’ in raised letters.

Any ideas about ID now, please?

Photos of candlesticks and lidded pot in amber glass (hopefully showing candlesticks in more detail).

Pamela has a very similar tray on her site attributed to Stolzle with a decanter and glasses set.

Well spotted, Jayne!

A shame that the candlesticks and pots don't appear to be in the catalogue.

Here is a lidded pot from a set in amber glass, but alternative panels are decorated with an enamelled ‘faux-tortoiseshell’ design.

Interestingly, decorative panels in the same style have been seen on another trinket set pattern discussed at
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,51881.0.html
where a possible attribution of Stolzle / Hermanova Hut was also suggested but without any firm catalogue proof. Well, the fact that we now have a lidded pot that is almost certainly by Stolzle / Hermanova Hut, with an enamelled decorative design that is, to my mind, identical, with pieces from both sets marked as Czechoslovakian, must surely strengthen that putative attribution beyond reasonable doubt.
