Some Beautiful Miniature Irish Glassware....Stunning!

Just put up for sale yesterday was some gorgeous old miniature glassware, all over 50 years old and all were purchased in Ireland just after WW2, over a period from 1947 to 1952. 
 This has to be one of my is truly delightful and stands at a height of 2 1/4" high. It would look rather splendid in a vintage dolls house, either 1/12th scale or in an old dolls house where scale does not matter. The little orange tips gives the impression that this is lit.....exquisite!
Then there is this all glass fireside companion set, complete with stand and four tools. I have never seen anything quite like this before. It is also believed to be Irish Glassware.
I found this so difficult to photograph as I kept getting a reflection each time I had a go....sorry but this is the best I can do....the photo simply does not do this justice.  It is amazing how the previous owner took such great care with this glassware, considering she was given this as a child. She told me that she was given all these by her father between the years of 1947 and 1952, as he used to visit Ireland a lot on business back then and each time, would bring her back something for her dolls house.
Now this glass clock with paper dial is fascinating....simply because Dol-Toi used to sell these but they were made by another company, which is unknown. So...I wonder if the glass company was Irish...who knows? But I love this little clock, is so stylish with the tubular triangular glass base.....again, this is exquisite.

These can be found for sale on the following page:

Various jugs, glasses etc. have been added to the following page....all useful for the vintage dolls house kitchen:

Thanks 12Create....yes, the clock is rather lovely and have been in two minds whether to keep it, but sadly I have nowhere it can go it must. Hopefully someone else can enjoy it. Celia
