A pair of clear pressed glass candlesticks of geometric form, decorated with panels of diamonds and vertical reeds.

Also a tray also decorated with panels of diamonds and reeds which, because of the similarity of the decoration, I am assuming for the moment to be a match with the candlesticks. The tray measures 32 x 20cm.

Does anyone have photos to share of a more complete set in the same pattern, or even other individual pieces that might make up such a set?

Comments, suggestions, or ID, please?

Candlesticks are Walther Oxford, Fred. http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=234&Itemid=194 :)  I have a pot base to match as well, which isn't on the site as yet.

Forgot to say, yes I'm sure the tray is a match (but I've not checked my file yet.) :)

Thank you for the prompt ID, Anne.

I must say I never considered Walther as a possibility; I suppose the clear glass and stark geometrics made me more inclined to consider Czechoslovakia as a source.

Certainly not common - these are the only two examples of the pattern I can recall seeing on eBay in the past year. Mind you, now that two have arrived, there will probably be another one along any minute.

I don't think they' are as commonly seen as other designs, Fred. They also did a smoking set type thing - I have the catalogue images somewhere. Very art deco designs, and I must admit the candlesticks are quite stylish. I like them!

I can't find the pots or the tray in the catalogues yet though.

Photos of a (part?) set from another source showing the candlesticks with a similar tray to that in my opening post, presumably confirming that the tray is indeed a match with the candlesticks. The tray measures 21x31cm.

This time there is also a matching stoppered perfume flask with a really distinctive geometric stopper finial.

Seems to be an uncommon trinket set pattern.

Does anyone have photos of other pieces (pots, pin tray, ringholder etc.) in the pattern to show, please?

Fred.

Oooh lovely, Fred, thanks for adding the pics. I've not seen the perfume before. Oxford is one of my favourite sets.

Photos of another (part) Walther Oxford set, this time with tray, a pair of perfume flasks, and a trio of lidded pots.
