Walther PRISMEN - and this only because of the powder pot up in the middle ;o)) I would not dare to name the rest - sorry

Might I suggest that the problem here might be to question whether this IS 'a set'?

I suspect we're looking at a 'marriage' of pieces possibly from the same factory or even series, but then possibly NOT a 'set' and possibly three different factories altogether?

I've seen stranger things happen in antique shops (for instance);-)

Hmmmm...

I bought this from a reputable English seller, who said it was a mustard jar and pair of salt and pepper shakers, plus tray, They really do all look like the same colour and quality glass and the pattern is repeated in all too, plus each piece fits the tray perfectly in the indents. The lid of the jar has an opening for the spoon too, so it sure seems to be a condiment jar :roll:

sure looks like a set rather than a marriage but.....stranger things have happened..... :lol:

I was hoping it may be in one of the old catalogues that you lot have on that side of the pond.

soooooo

hope someone finds something definitive as I have it listed as Brockwitz Prismen and dont want to misrepresent it if that is incorrect. :?

I don't know if this might help at all, but I noticed this Ebay listing which seems to be for Brockwitz Prismen - 6617827093.

Hi WhiteRabbit

thanks,yes, that is definitely a Brockwitz Prismen bowl.....Pamela has a pink beauty on her site. :)

Pamela, when I compare the prism points of that pink covered Prismen box you have listed under Brockwitz...it sure looks like this mustard jar :?:

Hi Cheri, this is the Walther Prismen pattern which comes a little nearer I think...

Manufacture and style remind me of Adlerhütten (this is not the pattern of yours but style)
http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/deckeldosen/00022.html

IMHO your set is far from being Brockwitz. You can see the 'in and out' of their Prismen pattern here better

Thanks Pamela

well, I think until I know for sure who made this set, I am going to remove the attribution for Brockwitz from the listing and just call it Prismen, unknown maker  8)

I do appreciate your help on this. :)

You're always welcome, Cheri and I think that's the most elegant way to offer it  :D
