A couple of photos (apologies for the quality) of a pressed glass (presumably part) trinket set.
The octagonal tray measures 29cm x 19cm has a base with heavy, ‘spider web’ ribbing and a clear centre.

The candlesticks are 16cm tall, with the foot and stem of each blending together to form a bell- or inverted trumpet-shaped body of octagonal section. The body and candleholder cups have close horizontal ribbing.

Two octagonal pots (of different sizes), one with a bulbous lid.  Pot bodies and lid with horizontal ribbing to match that of the tray and candlesticks.

Any suggestions as to ID, please?
