Elegant Art Deco / Hollywood Regency style compote made by Farber Bros., New York, ca. 1940s. Amber colored glass bowl, atop a gracefully curved pedestal, sits inside a chrome overly. A classic Farber Bros. style that is perfect for candy, nuts or potpourri. Marked on the bottom, "Farber Bros. - N.Y.C. - Pat. No. 87496-1924011."

There is no marking on the glass bowl, but the majority of glass for Farber Bros. was made by Cambridge Glass Company. Other makers included Corning, Duncan and Miller, Fenton, Fostoria, Indiana and Westmoreland.

The Farber Bros. (Louis and Harry) "clip on, clip-off" holder design was patented in 1932, designed by John Joseph Willmott for Louis Farber. The chrome holder was in use into the 1950s when the styling of the Farber Bros. items began to fall out of fashion.

Louis and Harry Farber sold items under the names Farber Bros. and Krome-Kraft. Louis and Harry were the younger brothers of S.W. Farber, who sold items under the Farberware brand name. Louis and Harry's business was separate from their older brother's, and Farber Bros. and Farberware should not be confused as part of the same company.

This compote is in absolutely gorgeous condition. True to the Farber Bros. "non-tarnish" claim, some 60 years later this piece still shows no tarnishing or scratches. The glass is in perfect chip and crack free condition.
