A bit of a mystery this time – another ‘fish scales’ set in green uranium glass, but this time with a quite different tray. The straight sides of the tray measure approx. 20cm.

At first sight I thought that the tray was a mis-matched piece from the Sowerby ‘Sunray’ set because the overall pattern on the tray base looks quite similar, but the shape of the tray is quite different, and the panel in the angle of the tray, the source of the ‘rays’, is patterned with ‘fish scales’ to match the rest of the set (whereas the Sowerby Sunray tray has a clear panel for the ‘sun’).
I can’t recall seeing a tray quite like this before – has anyone else seen a similar tray, or perhaps has this tray in a different colour to show?
