Hi,
Thought you would like these pictures. The first one is the Filey cigarette box, lid and two ashtrays. The second one is a blue crystopal Filey tray, bowl and candlestick. I have also seen the little bridge set of ashtrays in blue crystopal. But I have never managed to find any blue crystopal for sale. Let me know if anybody comes across some! It is truly gorgeous.
Incidentally, the crystopal version was introduced around 1947 but the Filey pattern goes back to 1935 and was originally made in Bagley's crystaltynt glass. These pictures are from our Bagley Glass book.

Thanks for sharing the picture of the Blue Crystopal I have never seen any of that !! It is gorgeous. Though I think I like the green best and I am still very excited that I have found a Trinket set and box that is in perfect condition. Can't wait for my Ashtray to arrive.... I will definately look out for more now  ;D
