A trinket set in pressed green uranium glass, comprising a tray, pair of candlesticks, a large lidded pot and a pair of small lidded pots.

Measurements:         
tray  11¾ x 8  inches
candlesticks:  6inches high
large pot:  4 inches diameter x 4 inches high (including finial & lid)
small pots: 3 inches diameter x 3¼ inches high (including finial & lid).

The unequal hexagonal tray is probably the most distinctive feature, with the base decorated with an all-over patter of small squares bordered by triple parallel ‘pointed wavy’ or scalloped lines. This wavy line pattern is also found on the regular hexagonal lids of the pots and the regular hexagonal tops of the candlestick bases.

A set in clear glass (this time with the small pots lacking their lids).

I am a bit confused now since I thought... I had the matching ring holders (although in green and apricot/pink satin). But in your description you are talking about hexagonal and those are nonagonal.....  but the wavy/scalloped decoration looks simular to me. So, nevertheless  2 pictures.
If anybody wants to use the photos, feel free to do so.

Very nice ring trees Eugenie, I would say they are a match.

 :)Is it just me wishful thinking or is the pot just like the Elite pot  pattern 37004 on page 126 of the Walther 1937 catalogue ?  ???

Thank you, Angela.

Certainly seems to be similar to the lidded pots in the sets (and the 1937 date is in the right sort area for a green uranium set). Shame that there are no other pieces with a similar pattern elsewhere in the catalogue.

I'll reserve judgement for the time being, but Walther is worth considering as a candidate.

Fred.

Definitely a ringer for the Walther Elite Pot No 37004 Angela, the colours and look of the satinised pieces look right for Walther too IMO.
