Another highly collectible pattern in Depression-era glassware is “Cambridge Arms” by the Cambridge Glass Company. The Replacements, Ltd. Museum carries a number of pieces that have been made by this extraordinary American company, including this candelabrum in the “Cambridge Arms” pattern. The candelabrum is made of a number of detachable pieces, including bobeches, prisms, arms, a centerpiece, and a top piece.
The Cambridge Glass Company created the “Cambridge Arms” pattern as a way to diversify their product. The entire candelabrum can be taken apart and individual pieces can be added to or subtracted from the set. This particular candelabrum features a bird as the crowning piece. Each bobeche can have individual prisms added and removed. The “Cambridge Arms” pattern also features a number of vases, bowls, globes, and centerpieces.
