The Indiana Tumbler and Goblet Company was only in business for nine years, its impact in the world of glass and the collecting community has been enduring. Their glass chemist, Jacob Rosenthal, created a number of unique new colors and treatments, of which Chocolate is the best-known. Of the Greentown patterns this color was manufactured in, the elaborate molds of the #375 Cactus pattern suited it extremely well, showing off the variations in color Chocolate could attain.
This is the cruet in the Cactus pattern. This color on this example is quite good, light in color on the handle and neck with good dark coloration at the high points.
Size: as it stands, this example is 5" tall, 3.25" from handle to spout and 4" wide at the widest.
Condition: Lacking its stopper. Several cooling lines in the handle and at the shoulder. Moderate wear to the bottom. No chips to the chevrons or other raised areas of the pattern, which is unusual.
