Cosmos and Cane, U.S. Glass   More

This pattern has a combination of delicate flowers interspersed by areas of cane. Pieces are found in a rich marigold-type color with a honey tinge (that collectors call honey amber) as well as marigold and white with a few pieces appearing in amethyst. There are many and varied shapes in this pattern, most of which can be called whimsies. Most small bowls are found in shapes other than round, square or tricorner for example. The tumbler and pitcher above are both in honey amber.

Bowls in the Cosmos and Cane pattern were often formed into shapes other than round or ruffled. While they are called whimsies, in reality there are enough in the various shape that it is safe to assume they were actually production items. Above are a square bowl in white, 5 1/4 inches across and 3 1/8 inches high that sold for $255 in 1998, and a tricorner plate or bowl in marigold, 9 to 10 inches across, that sold for $200 in 1999.

Table sets consist of four pieces; a two-handled spooner, a two-handled covered sugar, a covered butter dish, and a creamer. Complete table sets are very rare. Breakfast sets (also rare) are made up of a squatty two-handled open sugar and a creamer, both smaller than those in the table set. They are known in marigold and white. Note the difference in the shape of the handles.
