The Cactus pattern was introduced by the Indiana Tumbler & Goblet Company (Greentown) produced in Greentown, Indiana and was known as pattern No. 375 which was produced in the early 1900s, around 1901-1903. This Greentown pattern has been called both "Cactus" and "Paneled Agave," with "Cactus" being the name preferred by collectors since the 1930s when J. Stanley Brothers coined the name "Cactus" when he was writing for HOBBIES magazine. Most of the original Greentown Cactus pieces were made in Chocolate Glass but the four colors Cactus was produced in include Canary, Chocolate, Clear Opalescent, and Nile Green.
This is a seldom seen, Greentown Chocolate Compote. This is the smaller version. Perfect to add to your collection of chocolate glass. Yours to enjoy for years to come! Wonderful compote in that it has no cracks, no scratches. It does have a firing flaw on the stem near the top to the stem - see the last picture. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
