To my surprise and delight the vanity set has been identified as Harrach. Thank you, Brian Severn.
Having declared myself a purist when it comes to Tango Glass I've had to call this a 'Decorated' Vanity Set! However I'm not certain what type of decoration this is. There is certainly relief....incised lines for stems and etched dished areas for petals and leaves. The colour is a problem and the floral motif is matt though the rest of the surface is glossy. If I take my nail from the glossy yellow into a leaf or a petal my nail goes down into hollows. However in some petals/leaves there are raised ridges (see image three).
The body is yellow with a thick clear outer casing. Would incising/etching into this clear layer make it matt/change the colour? Or is there something going on I haven't understood/recognised?
The comb tray is the same shape as the red /spatter one I posted recently, though all else is different. Both these recent sets are different again from the one I posted here five years ago.
At least it arrived in tact though as you see there are parts missing.
