06143-M0298EOEE- Catalogue- FARBER BROTHERS, NYC. Copyright 1941. Krome-Kraft holloware glass. Foreword states they had been in business twenty-five years and a patent is shown dated 1933. This would lead one to believe the catalogue is dated ca 1958. However, there is a second booklet included: "Price Guide To Farber Brothers 1941 Catalog". Perhaps they commenced to make the chromium plated holloware and later invented the clip-on/off mountings and holders? Anyway, the catalogue contains extensive line of Krom-Kraft: Table sets of all kinds, cocktail shakers, drink glasses, ice tubs, dishes, compotes, sugars, salt/ pepper shakers, trays, buffet pieces, coffee sets, silent butlers, percolator sets, crumb sets, serving platters, casserole dishes, candelabra, much more.
