Hobbs & Brockunier Cream and Sugar Set – Goat Head Pattern

My obsession with my Cambridge Glass Rams Head Bowls, and my lion collection, has me looking for animals in glass.

My husband and I drove more than 3,500 kilometers recently out to Atlantic Canada.  I hardly bought a thing, but picked up this set less than an hour and a half from home!

I really like this set.  These old Hobbs & Brockunier pieces are so interesting.

This is pattern number 79 – Goat Head.  Introduced 1868.

Unfortunately the lid to the sugar bowl is missing.  There is a goat head finial on the lid, which would have been cool to find.

This is a huge sugar bowl – good for a big sweet loving family!

I have no idea of what happened to the blue version below.  I would have sworn that I had never owned this piece before.  This is obviously a sign of a ‘problem’!

This is the carnival version.  Piece 2914 – the Covered Candy Box – of the Harvest line.  Very pretty colour on this piece.

Re the age.  Hard to tell, Indiana made these pieces for many years.

This is a Depression era (I think) covered candy dish.

The edging has an open lace pattern.  These pieces aren’t uncommon and can be found in a large range of colours and finishes and pieces.  I likely bought this because it is blue.  I have had a number of blue serving pieces.  I like to display them in the summer.  Blue seems like a summerish kind of colour!
