|Hobstar and Arches or Hobstar Flower - Imperial|
|Hobstar and Arches, also known as Hobstar Flower, is an exterior pattern and has dominant hobstars with groups of diamond shapes between them. Hobstar and Arches is Imperial's pattern #302. It was not known that the various shapes were all the same pattern until Imperial catalogs were found and the same mold number identified.
Mostly found in compotes and small and large bowls. Large bowls are found ruffled, round and ice cream shaped. Small berry bowls are found either ruffled or round. The large berry bowl is 8 to 9 inches across and the small berry is about 4 to 5 inches across. Colors known in the compotes include green, lavender, lime green, marigold, olive, purple, smoke and violet. Bowls are known predominantly in marigold but a rare purple may also be found.
The 1909 Imperial catalog shows a wine set in mold No. 302 which included a tray, decanter with stopper and six wine glasses. The decanter also appears in the same catalog this time being sold alone as a small decanter with stopper. To date only the decanter, without stopper, has been found in carnival glass and only in marigold.
