Inverted Thistle, Cambridge
This pattern is not seen as often as Cambridge's other intaglio pattern Inverted Strawberry. There are also fewer shapes known. Shown above is a marigold tumbler, one of the few known. It sold for $525 in 2000. The water pitcher is purple, and courtesy of Steve Morrow. Water sets have been reproduced.

All table set pieces are rare. Shown above is the covered sugar in amethyst. It sold for $325 in 1994. At the right is a nut bowl. Note the feet, typical of this piece. What's not typical is the shape--it has been whimsied by pulling out two sides with the other two up. It's in green and sold for $600 in 1999. A similar example sold for $350 in 2012.
