The middle inside of this paperweight has SCA 2000. Does anyone know what the SCA stand for?

Christine, thanks for your thoughts on this. It had me puzzled! 

Angela, there is now a blue frosted Nymphen ringholder on GTS - one of Eugénie's magnificent collection - here: http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms3/german/walther/nymphen for colour comparison...

I have never heard of any faked Willie Manson weights.

Thought I'd put my pennyworth in, ::) wear  is not always something to go on for ageing a piece, as to the shape I did read somewhere that those 'square' finishes your bowl has was common to one of the Stourbridge makers, which one I cannot remember, sorry. ::) ;D

Thanks Christine, I guess that any I.d. of glass that doesn't have a distinct style, pattern, signature or label will always be a bit of a qualified guess. Generally the qualifications of the average person on the net being so much poorer than those on here.
In your opinion would you say the plates were late Victorian? They are rather delicate so I'm not sure that they had a practical use.(No loss of threading and minimal signs of wear)
Kind regards
Nick

In that case it probably is sand blasted; the standard Walther finish is acid etched. You can often see where the "painter" has missed tiny areas. VEB Sachsenglas certainly made the Nymphen tray...
