A Charming English Art Deco 1930s - 1940s Blue Glass Trinket Vanity Set


Sweet & Petite, is a good way to describe this charming example of an Art Deco glass boudoir trinket set.

It is an exquisite example of such items without being overwhelming or intrusive. It is also a product of good quality having been press-moulded using fine blue crystal.

Much research remains on going to establish the makers of many of these charming items, and the maker is unknown to me.

The glass as used,together with from where & when it was purchased would point towards an English glass company but only as a guess,I cannot establish this with guarantee.

It is however an original vintage item which dates circa 1930s 1940s.

Rarely are these sets so charmingly-small Not by the number of its components, but by its size.

It makes a statement all of its own without having to be bold and with its tray dimension size can be displayed upon the most smallest of display areas such as a window sill or even as I have, upon a bathroom shelf where it can capture diffused natural light to give beautiful optic effects.

One has to accept that most glass trinket sets of this period were produced to be available as separate items which could be added to if required. This is often made evident by their tray sizes, as not all can accommodate each and every component piece of their range.

Vases,Candlesticks,small pots & large pots,ring dishes,powder boxes etc Not all could be placed within the confinement of their glass trays. It was left to the purchaser to choose which items they required and so to suggest that this trinket set is incomplete without candlesticks or whatever,is quite incorrect.

One purchased a tray (if required) and then chose items from the range of pattern-types available to suit individual requirements and of course, subject to cost.

The set is as complete as it was from the date of its purchase.

Purchased by late mother from The Army & Navy Stores here in England where she worked during the pre 2nd World War years.

My photographs display all that one needs to see the charm & style of this beautiful blue glass set. From its crisply moulded tray to the twinned lidded dishes & its accompanying ring dish, each piece has been lovingly produced to give pleasure & usability.

The set is offered to you here free of any damage and it Sparkles like a dream.


The addition of cobalt to the crystal glass batch together with slight additions of uranium & hints of copper oxide have awarded this set with a wonderful aqua blue transparent coloured tint.

It could have been made yesterday,for it looks like brand new however this is a genuine period example and most worthy for your collection and at a ridiculously low price.
