On the weekend I stopped in at Under the Toadstool. I was looking for some Christmas inspiration, and a ‘bunny’ gift. Had a nice chat with the ladies there and one of them asked me if I knew who had made these holders.
The colour and the clarity of the glass grabbed my attention, so of course I had to buy them!
I thought they might be Fostoria, but turns out that they were from Duncan and Miller’s Canterbury (#115) line. I saw these pieces numbered as 115-2 and 115-122, but I can’t verify either.
The are a bright colour. In my ignorance of shades I would have called them limeish-yellow!
Nice pieces…..and luckily I got the ‘bunny’ gift too!
The stand of this piece is chromium. It was made by Farbers Bros. of New York, between 1939-1955. The stem closely resembles the work of Cambridge and its statuesque line. Farber Bros’ chrome line was called Krome-Kraft. A key feature of the Krome-Kraft line was the patented snap-in/snap-off feature of the inserts. They all come out. I am guessing htis was to clean the glass without getting the chrome wet all the time.
The glass insert was made by Cambridge Glass Company of Cambridge, Ohio.
I don’t know anything about Art Deco, but this reminds me of a piece of that design (don’t really know why).
