|Fruit Band, Piccardo|
|This set was photographed while in the collection of the late John Britt and, although he referred to it as Berry Band and Ribs, it is most likely a set called Fruit Band. Because the design is so similar, this pattern is often confused with Berry Band and Ribs.
In 2012, a marigold wine set with six wine glasses and undertray, listed as Fruit Band, sold for $150. It was, however, the pattern known as Berry Band and Ribs.
In 1998, a blue decanter sold for $185 and a marigold example for $100. The same year a tumbler-shaped cordial in blue sold for $95 and a marigold for $60. In 2019, another sale of marigold tumbler-shaped cordial was for $30.
The pattern is also known in a tumble up (guest set) with tray. One of these in marigold sold in 2013 for $200.
