Does anyone know if this is an actual VINTAGE 'KROME-KRAFT' CATALOG by FARBER BROTHERS or if it is a reproduction? This oversize catalog is from the New York Showroom at 339 Fifth Avenue. It measures 9" across X 12" high and contains 48 pages with black and white images of some fabulous Farber Brothers merchandise. Many of the items included in this book include cocktail, cordial, condiment, and decanters sets, salt & pepper shakers, coffee sets, casseroles, platters, service pieces, console sets, ice tubs, sandwich and serving plates, candle holders, serving trays and much more. The catalog is tight and clean with typical light wear to the covers. On the inside it shows that it was published by FARBER BROTHERS, NY with a copyright date of 1941.
I don't see any other publishing names or dates showing that is a reproduction. Any information or help with this would be most greatly appreciated.

    It's a repro - I bought this along with Farber Bros price guide at Collectors Books. It was a go along with the new price guide. Maybe they can tell you more.

    Do you have any Farber Brothers pieces? My wife has an extensive collection, but I'm not finding much here
