Hi,
Any information appreciated.

Lead/crystal glass - embossed mark.
Its base would probably have had some sort of mount.

Wt 890gm
L.  23cm (9.5Ē)
Ht. 2cm

Thanks for looking  :)

Hi Moderator, would it be possible to shift this one to ď Glass Trinket Sets ď ?

Many thanks

Hello,

It's the tray, part of a liquor set, without decanter or glasses obviously.  ;)
I haven't got the pattern number or description but the item number is 726, as you can see and it's from the 1908 catalogue, available in clear and a blue version. No trinket sets that I've spotted in the catalogue.

Actually, I have to correct myself, it is also just listed as a 'Plateau' or tray, but as the image is quite small in the catalogue, I missed it.

Just hold your hand over the decanters and glasses and you have the same image  ;D

Hi,
Many thanks for identifying it for me - much appreciated.
Itís been used as a trinket tray ( for cosmetic jewellery ) for the last few weeks, however on receiving
your reply it did cross my mind whether to repossess it, but.....................!!
I suppose it could be on the move again back to its original site !
Thanks again  :)

I've moved this back out of trinket sets as it doesn't appear to fit there, but if trinket sets appear in the same pattern I'll be thrilled.  This is a good example of the versatility of some pieces - trinket set tray, decanter tray, or serving platter. :)

Hi Jayne,
Thanks, yes itís a great piece of pressed glass - and yes it was so good how Anne Tique
managed to identify it for me.

Anne, moving it back seems a good idea  - although it does seem very much at home looking after bits
and pieces of jewellery  - but then of course it doesnít have much choice, does it !

Hi Scott, it probably doesn't... of course if you found a really nice trinket set to replace it with you might be able to reclaim it!  ;D
