Flute and Cane, Imperial

[column-half-1][/column-half-1][column-half-2][/column-half-2]

Flute & Cane is pretty much as the name says; a band of flutes below which is a cane pattern. Although many shapes were made, only the pitchers are seen very often. There are two sizes of pitchers; one about 10 inches tall and the other about 8 1/2 inches tall. The candlesticks are quite rare; one of these in marigold sold for $100 in 2004. Other shapes reported are two sizes of tumblers and 6-inch plates.

This 8-inch blue example on the left is courtesy of Tim Cantrell. In the center is the first report oval relish measuring 6 5/8 inches long and 4 inches wide in smoke. Thanks to Mike and Cindy Ostrosky for the photo. And on the right, Steve Fink sent this photo of a very nice clambroth Flute & Cane ruffled bowl in 2006. It's 8 inches across with a 4 3/4-inch base. The star on the base appears to be similar to that of the oval relish above.
