Not at all uncommon for glass trinket sets of this period, is that only the tray has a moulded mark to signify its country of origin: CZECHOSLOVAKIA. The base of the large powder box is also country marked, but the factual maker is unknown to me* (please see foot note at end of page and final picture as shown)
Common however among glass trinket set types is the variety of component pieces which were made available and from which to choose from. Not all could fit upon their intended tray at the same time for example and one would simply select from the pattern range to form ones own trinket set to suit individual taste and requirement.
This set is therefore neither complete or incomplete and due to its numerous component items it offers a wonderful flexibility of display possibilities. It is a beautiful 1930's Art Deco glass boudoir trinket set and it captures the period with wonderful geometric hexagonal, diamond and triangular moulded forms.
It is important perhaps to understand that the two smaller trinket dishes are as original and did not possess a lid, unlike its larger powder pot with its very striking moulded crystal handle. Lids for these smaller pots, were produced, but they were also available without, as is evident by the original pattern catalogues of the period.
Each piece of this amazing set compliments each component item beautifully, right down to the hexagonal tray with triangular handles. Thoughtful design continues throughout each individual piece to provide an overall Art Deco beauty in magical uranium green crystal.
The condition is next to perfect however there is a rough edge to the underside base of the powder box which can be felt but is faintly seen. The tray has a hairline as is shown. This set remains a worthy example of its pattern type, which is scarce.
The set also features remarkable qualities of uranium green fluorescence.
* I listed this set several months ago. One of the joys for any collector is to positively identify a piece which has yet to have been. That this set was manufactured in Czechoslovakia, is beyond any doubt, however the pots of this set are as featured in the Brockwitz, Germany catalogue dated 1926. It can safely therefore, be confirmed that the Czech factory which produced this set, did indeed use original Brockwitz moulds for the trinket dishes and would have no doubt fashioned each other component item to produce this set as is here. This is quite a notable feature, for up until now, the designer of this set is unrecorded. The smaller dishes are indeed and unquestionably Brockwitz patterns as is shown and pictured from their original catalogue dated 1926. Most, if not ALL Brockwitz moulds are thought to have been destroyed during WWII, but the design and the Brockwitz provenance of this set,is established *
