A rather chunky trinket set of smoky-grey pressed glass comprising a pair of short candlesticks, a lidded pot, and a kidney shaped tray. The tray is approximately 12 x 7 inches, and the lidded pot is 6 inches tall to the top of the lid finial.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by Tony Simmons).

The decorative pattern is mainly geometric panels of chevrons (sometimes combined with crosses).

Not a pattern I can recall seeing before, but looks rather Czech to me.

ID, comments or suggestions, please?

Fred.

Lovely set! I have the tray in green. I had always assumed it was a crescent salad side plate/dish. Also seen the dish in a deep turquoise.

Something about this sets reminds me of this Sowerby Cake Plate/Stand Pattern 2563

https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,44802.0.html

I'm also reminded of a Federal Glass Snowflake Star Cake Plate.

Lastly I noticed the Mystery Set #107 page intro states the candlesticks are thought to be Czech Rudolfova Pattern 11480

Colour also known as Smokey Topaz or Smokey Grey or just Smoke (useful when using the search function).

Fabulous find, Jayne, well spotted thank you. Inwald of course became the Rudolfova glassworks post-WW2, which explains the later Rudolfova catalogue image for the candlestick.
