Athenia or Panelled 44

This pattern is US Glass No. 15,140 Athenia also called Panelled 44 or Reverse 44 by the collectors.  Introduced c1912.  

This looks like a creamer and sugar but the double handled piece might be a spoonholder.  They appear to be gilded with a 'maiden's blush" or pink stain.

The pattern has four different types of creamers and sugars and I don't which you have.  They all list in the range of $25 to $40 dependent upon size.  The decoration would add something in the range of 75% to the value.  As always, condition is critical and as is finding a willing buyer.
