Cambridge Glass / Farber Brothers Holders

by Gwen Shumpert
Issue 37 - May 1976

When I first started collecting Cambridge glass, I thought all pieces in chrome holders marked Farber Brothers were Cambridge - but not so - and since there is not much information around on these items, I decided to show you some Cambridge/Farber Brothers this month.

First of all, though, I want to thank the Board of Directors of the National Cambridge Collectors Club, Inc, Bill and Phyllis Smith and Harold Bennett for their help in "weeding out" the non-Cambridge items. All photographs shown here have been positively identified as Cambridge/Farber Brothers items. Photographs by Billy Shumpert.
