Glass Trinket Sets / Re: Help identifying pink glass perfume with stopper please
« Last post by Bluebell17 on October 17, 2016, 09:10:16 PM »
Hi Dee  -  would suggest that the lidded powder or cream pots, at least, are possibly part of a trinket set, and if it's a known set then someone here may well be able to tell you the maker and an approximate date of manufacture.             Always possible the colognes are also from a dressing table set, but I'd suggest not, and they are more likely to be stand alone items - but these things not my area, so really only guessing.

Of course if they're unrecognized items then regret to say you are quite likely never going to find out any information.    Dressing table accoutrements - during the first half of the C20 - were made in prodigious quantities in most countries.             As a totally uneducated punt I'd have thought somewhere around the 1940's give or take a decade.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your imput, I had a feeling they were from a dressing table set. I remember my grandmother having a similar set in clear glass. I've scoured the internet for information to no avail, so hence the reason for my post. Fingers crossed that someone may be able to identify them. The two bottles are of sligtly different sizes in girth and height.
The girths are 7 and 6 inches and heights are 4.5 and 5 inches.

Thank you

Many thanks everyone for your help and comments!
The confirmation on date and provenance was very helpful, Peter. Actually I was hoping you´d have a look - much appreciated.
Thanks for the additional info as well, Anne.
Glad I bought it, because you hardly come to handle things like these so easily.

thanks Keith  -  this photo set up is courtesy of Dirk's advice ;D  -  and agree it's a lovely piece.                    It came from the PDSA charity shop this morning, so I guess my contribution has helped a little pussy somewhere along the line ;)
Glass Paperweights / Re: Caithness Swirly Paperweight - but which pattern & year ?

Many Thanks - I was looking on Scotland's Glass originally but assumed it was a modern weight so was looking at more recent years.   ;D

M, I have the entire book as a PDF (legitimate copy) if you want it. Same applies to anyone else - just email me using the envelope icon.

Glass / Re: Powder Jar 'B' mark
« Last post by Anne on October 17, 2016, 01:18:02 PM »
The glass is very similar to the  Baccarat Bamboo Tors pattern as seen in the 1916 catalogue - page 043 has a lidded powder box with a similar metal part...  the one illustrated is the Rose teinte version not clear like yours but we do know the pattern was made in clear also, but.... the lid on the Baccarat one appears to be flat not patterned like yours, and the intro page of the catalogue states that each piece carries the usual Baccarat stamp displayed on the same page (which isn't a B).   

Tous les articles de notre fabrication portent une étiquette, une estampille ou un poinçonnage représentant la marque ci-contre.
which Google translate helpfully converts to:
All products in our manufacturing carry a label, a stampille or punching representing the above-against mark.

So I suspect not Baccarat but possibly a lookalike for what was a popular pattern at the time...

Thanks Anne. They are compressed files in jpeg format from Photoshop. This signature is really difficult to photograph. I can barely make it out using a 7X mag eyeglass.

Wow! Dirk that is stunning!  :o

Have you seen this page about the Bremen arms?
...  The first supporters appear in the 16th century , two angels holding the shield. From 1568 they are replaced by two lions. In 1617 a helmet appeared on the shield. The helmet was never officially granted, but is still used on the great-arms of the city (see below). The crown appeared first in the late 16th century ...
