Farber Brothers Krome Kraft Cambridge Arms Centerpiece with Green Inserts

An unusual piece showing how closely Farber Bros. worked with the Cambridge glass company, this is a large, multi-tiered, convertible centerpiece in glass and chromed brass. It's based around Camrbidge's patented "Arms" system, which allowed items to be used in various formats as candlesticks, serving dishes and even vases.

This piece is based around a single pressed crystal, three-armed piece. It sits in a Krome Kraft base which could be used on its own as a single low candle holder. The armed piece holds four metal holders which each hold a glass insert. In this case all the inserts are green.

The piece is x" across and y" tall. The dishes are z" in diameter.

Condition: two small (0.125") rim chips to two of the glass inserts, some minor corrosion to a couple of the metal holders, otherwise fine.

Mark: stamped Farber Bros Krome Kraft on the underside of the base.
