The Nudes-Royal Blue figural comport by Cambridge is simply breathtaking! As a reminder for those who haven’t reviewed their tableware glossary lately, a comport (or compote) is shallow bowl on a stem which can be used as a serving piece. The 8 1/4-inch high comport offered here will look gorgeous placed on a nightstand, hutch, or dresser, making a wonderful conversation piece that will be a great addition to your home or office. This comport also makes an ideal gift for a friend or loved one, and is especially nice for the Cambridge glass collector. Produced from 1931 to 1958, the Nudes pattern by Cambridge is extremely popular.
The Cambridge Glass Company was founded in 1873, when a group of businessmen from the town of Cambridge, Ohio chartered a glass producing facility. Most of the company’s early designs were heavy, pressed-glass patterns. The company achieved steady growth during the early part of the twentieth century, and during the 1920s, 30s, and 40s the company released its most successful shapes, colors, and etchings. In 1931, the company debuted its very successful “ Rose Point” etching, as well as the popular “Nude Stems” collection. Many of the company’s most famous colors were developed during this period, including “ Carmen,” “ Crown Tuscan,” “ Royal Blue,” and “ Heatherbloom.” Soon after the end of World War II, the company began to experience declining sales. In 1958, the company closed its doors, and Imperial Glass acquired all of Cambridge’s molds and equipment. While the Cambridge company is now closed, its legacy lives on at Replacements.
