What a stunning example of gorgeous depression era glass.
We have a lovely, complete dressing table set- in a gorgeous green; such a classic example of glass produced in the Art Deco era. As a bonus, this glass also has a uranium glow.
The pattern name is 'Waltraut' and has been confirmed via original catalogue pictures.
This art deco set dates back to pre WWII, circa 1930s.
Included in this spectacular set is 6 pieces - rectangular tray, two candlestick holders, a ring holder, a small round trinket dish with lid and a large round trinket dish, no lid.
Overall this set is in great condition with only a small amount of surface wear and a couple of small chips on the glass tray and base of the candle holders. It has some bubbles in the glass, as expected from manufacturing.
For a set which is just shy of 100 years old, it's in pretty good nick really.
Approx measurements are:
- rectangular tray, 33cm long x 20cm wide x 2cm tall
- candlestick holder, 15.5cm tall x 8.5cm diameter (base)
- ring holder, 5.5cm tall x 7.5cm diameter
