Queens Choice Bagley
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:26:36 AM »
Sometimes you have to.....!  Cleaning my big showcase in the hall with hundreds and hundreds of glass ring holders, a very clear  Rd number caught my eye : Rd 698049. I stopped cleaning and started searching. Not that difficult!  Herewith a photo.  Anne, feel free to use it for your GTS. Saw  too that in october an amber coloured  Queens Choice power box was offered at eBay.  No bids though.

Wow! I had no idea that there was a ring holder in Queens Choice, Eugénie!  That's a super find... in the Bagley Glass book (Bowey, Parsons and Parsons) Angela says there was a powder bowl in Queen's Choice, but no other parts of a boudoir set in that pattern, so I am sure she will be delighted to hear about this one.  I will add to the site as soon as possible, thank you. :)

Brilliant Eugenie! I read this post and it inspired me to check an amber tray and candlesticks I have for an RD Number, and lo and behold there it was on the top side of the tray RD 698049! The candlesticks are stylistically matched perfectly with the tray and a Queen's Choice bowl which I already owned, the glass even feels the same.

While surfing around the GTS Mysteries section I then spotted the same set in Amber, Blue and Frosted/Satin Uranium, the Amber images are the actual set I purchased a while back, and there with the blue items is a Queens Choice Bowl in blue and what appears to be a ring holder in blue exactly the same as yours!

So there we are, it seems Bagley DID make a full Dressing Table Set / Trinket Set / Vanity Set in the Queen's Choice pattern, comprising at least a Tray, Powder Pot, Candlesticks and Ring Holder.

I will upload some pics of the RD Number and Set asap.

Actually the Bagley Queen's Choice lidded powder/trinket pot/bowl pattern number 1122 came in 2 sizes, 7 inch and 5 inch, so you could easily make a standard 5 piece set with just one large pot, or a 7 piece set with one large pot and 2 smaller pots.  8)

Also it may be worth noting the lid of my 5 in bowl and the candlestick base are exactly the same size.

Wow! Jayne, that is a fabulous find! :) <--- a smiley doesn't seem sufficient, I want a bouncing up and down with excitement emoticon!  Let me email Angela Bowey now - she is working on the Bagley eBook currently, so will be keen to see these I am sure!

Yes Anne, I am also rather excited by this find! However I managed to crack the tray right across the middle just before taking the pics, I've never had this happen before and was quite surprised as I laid it quite gently on the cloth covered table. It's still in one piece (just) and the crack doesn't really show in the pics, but I wondered if its somewhat more fragile than it looks, it's rather solid and heavy, and could this be why this piece seems fairly rare? Anyway my excitement faded slightly after this disaster, but still at least I got the pics before it falls into 2 pieces!  ;D

Oh no, that's so sad Jayne... but if it does crack with a clean break you should be able to repair it with some of the UV curing glass glue that dries clear. I've fixed some mishaps with that myself. :)

That's good to know Anne, thanks. And yes I hope Angela Bowey is as excited as we are by this find! :)
