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

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...

They are probably English but Internet attributions of Stevens and Williams tend to be a bit suspect, especially when originating from the US - it's go-to attribution. They may be, I don't know

Hi Sue,
Thanks for looking. Sorry about the pics, I'm a collector of mostly flint/clear glass and have got into the habit of taking photos with a black background. I hope that these are more helpful.
Kind regards
Nick
