Breakfast Sets - Part 5
BREAKFAST SETS - Part 5
Cambridge Glass Co. produced these sets/tray in pressed clear glass. This set is marked as such. They were purchased by after-market-iridizers who created a number of color variations.
Vesta, MN Breakfast Set
There are literally dozens of these sets found in flashed-type marigold, having advertising to match the venue where they were sold. This, in many cases was a local State Fair. Again, one of the more affluent producers of clear, pressed glass, such as Heisey or Cambridge sold the rather plain design to after-market iridizers. The very size and absence of glass design, accommodated the lettering aspect. Items such as these were sold at Columbus, Ohio State Fair as late as the 1940s.

LUSTRE and CLEAR in Marigold
LUSTRE and CLEAR in Clambroth Breakfast Set by Imperial.
LUSTRE and CLEAR: This design is shown with 2 other breakfast sets in an old Imperial factory catalog. It is shown in the Archer book on Imperial, Ref: 1904-1938 Catalogs 104F, 101D, Bargain Book, Cat. B. Lustre and Clear sets were designated #609 in the Imperial catalogs.
Marigold and clambroth are the usual colors found. We have never heard of a set in purple.
PANSY - Marigold
PANSY Breakfast Set in Purple - 3.5 in. high
PANSY: Marigold, purple, helios, amber and aqua are known colors in these sets produced by Imperial. Purple examples are breathtakingly lovely and the aqua sets are on the pastel side.
FLUTE & CANE Breakfast Sugar
Very Scarce - 3.25 in. tall x 3.25 in. across.
FLUTE and CANE: As with the other shapes in this obscure Imperial pattern, the breakfast sets are extremely difficult to find. Items within this pattern are reported only in marigold.
GRAPE & CABLE in amethyst.
GRAPE & CABLE Breakfast Set in Scarce Green
GRAPE & CABLE: Somewhat smaller than the full size table set pieces, these have no thumbprint design around the base. Colors are limited to marigold, amethyst and green. Among the numerous shapes within this Northwood pattern, these breakfast sets can be considered quite scarce!
STAR and FILE: Apparently this was one of Imperial's very best sellers, for the list of shapes is extensive and ads displaying the pattern are numerous within the factory catalogs. It is their #612 and appears in their catalogs until late 1929. The pattern is almost exclusively found in marigold. At least 20 different shapes can be found within this pattern.
Dean & Diane Fry - 10/09
My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother;
for they will be a graceful ornament on your head, and chains about your neck.
My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait to shed blood;
let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
let us swallow them alive like Sheol, and whole, like those who go down to the Pit;
we shall find all kinds of precious possessions, we shall fill our houses with spoil;
cast in your lot among us, let us all have one purse”-
My son, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path;
for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.
Surely, in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird; but they lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk secretly for their own lives.
So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its owners.
