Imperial Flute and Cane
Imperial FLUTE and CANE
Imperial Catalog #104A designates this pattern to be 666 ½ . In addition to a 4 piece table set, 2 pc. breakfast set, there are 31 additional shapes which were produced in crystal. (Our descriptions coincide with the names applied to shapes shown in the catalog.) There are 6 different styles in the collar based bowl shape displayed in that catalog, ranging from a 4 ¾” berry to a 9 ¼” shallow round nappy.
Shapes known in marigold carnival glass: Bowls from 4 ¾” to 8”, 23 oz. Milk Pitcher, Tumbler, 9 oz., Tumbler, 12 oz., 6” Plate, Stemmed Sherbet, Custard Cup, Stemmed Goblet, Stemmed Wine, Stemmed Cordial, Breakfast creamer and sugar (open), Stemmed Champagne, which the catalog calls “footed jelly”, and the piece collectors refer to as Compote is actually a 6 ¼” footed bowl.
That footed jelly, or compote is displayed in one of our photos in clambroth color. Steve Fink graciously sent a photo of his clambroth 8” bowl. That same shaped bowl is offered in the catalog in a 9” size, as well, but is not known to have been produced in carnival glass.
All iridized shapes are considered scarce, very scarce, rare or extremely rare. Even the bowls do not make an appearance very often.
The 6” plate is considered an under-plate for the sherbet, or the custard cup.
