Smoke glass punch set

Any ideas what this might be would be much appreciated.  It seems a quality set.  The glass is quite thin.  No marks.  It has a Scandi look to it, but could be anything....  As to age, I'm stumped and don't have an idea from its design.

Applied handles to the cups and ladle - which also has a polished pontil mark.

TIA :wink:

Hi Anne,
colour and shape is very much Wagenfeld-ish of Lausitzer Glas
just a guess  8)

I immediately thought of Wagenfeld when I saw it but looked up the Weisswasser book and found the pre-war set produced there is quite different. But it could well be post-war production from WMF, the colour is correct and the design is very fifties. Unfortunately WMF post-war production is not documented.

Thank you so much Pamela and Ivo 8)  

I did a Wilhelm Wagenfeld search and found this http://www.designhandlung.de/esites/estart.html  -  go to g43
This lidded bowl is dated 1935.

IMHO I would say the shape of the lid is identical to my punch bowl lid.

Thank you so much Pamela :P   I will try too.
It is a stylish set.  Only five cups unfortunately, but just the punchbowl and ladle are a find, I'm sure.
