Help identifying pink glass lidded powder pot please
« on: October 15, 2016, 01:00:16 PM »
Hi,

Hope you can identify this pink glass. A friend has asked me to find out a little about it, as she's hoping to sell it.

There are a pair of each item.

The two lidded bowls are 5 inches high including handle and are 4.5 inches in diameter.

Any idea on pattern, usage, maker etc would be appreciated.

Regards
Dee

Hi Dee  -  would suggest that the lidded powder or cream pots, at least, are possibly part of a trinket set, and if it's a known set then someone here may well be able to tell you the maker and an approximate date of manufacture.             Always possible the colognes are also from a dressing table set, but I'd suggest not, and they are more likely to be stand alone items - but these things not my area, so really only guessing.

Of course if they're unrecognized items then regret to say you are quite likely never going to find out any information.    Dressing table accoutrements - during the first half of the C20 - were made in prodigious quantities in most countries.             As a totally uneducated punt I'd have thought somewhere around the 1940's give or take a decade.

They are not part of the same set, so we could do with splitting them out to 2 topics. I'll do that for you now.

OK, so now they are split I can respond better re this one...   this is a powder pot from a set by an unknown maker. I have seen the set as oval tray, powder pot, two candleholders and a pintray.  It is very similar in shape and size to Bagley Victoria (2nd version) set, but it's not the same. Plus Bagley Victoria was (we know for sure) only made in pink with an oblong tray, whilst this set above is also known in blue, green and amber.  So far I have not found evidence of who made this, but I am still looking.  May I add your images to our Mysteries gallery on the Glass Trinket Sets website please Dee?

Hi Anne,

Thank you for splitting my post. I should really have done two posts, as it's obvious the two patterns are different. Please feel free to post my pictures in the Mysteries Gallery.

It was lovely to see the picture of the green trinket set, and I can see the comparison drawn between it and Bagley....let's hope they can be identified soon.

My friend would like to sell them as I mentioned, and is keen to sell them as a pair. Given they are missing other items from the set, is this the best option?


Regards

Dee

I doubt they'd sell for much, if at all, as a pair. They aren't even the same shade of pink. They would sell better individually but probably not for much

I thought Dee meant she was asking about selling the two lidded bowls together as a lot, not a bowl and a perfume (the perfumes have been split off to a separate topic). Her friend has a pair of each she said at the top post...

Christine is correct that these are not high value items though, Dee. I see them in charity shops from time to time for a few pounds. As each set appeared to come with one lidded pot it might be better to sell them separately as there may be people looking for a lidded pot to complete a set, but either way they are not going to make your friend a fortune, sadly.

The candlesticks in this set are a ringer for the Sowerby 2501/Cadet Candlesticks.

GTS Mystery 175 Link

(The Amber candlesticks in the link look like the Bagley Victoria Short candlesticks but as you say Anne it supposedly only came in Pink...hmm)

http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/Gallery/thumbnails.php?album=181

Still a strong candidate for the elusive Sowerby Maid set.

Edit

Thread for merging here please Mods, lots more pics and talk on this set there, no wonder I had deja vu, I said the same things years ago haha.
