Two Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Iridescent Vases

Auction: 20th Century Design - 3400T Location: Online Date / Time: June 17, 2020 12:00PM


Two Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Iridescent Vases, Bellaire, Ohio, early 20th century, both form 418-22, white on blue drag loop decoration with orange overshot, the other blue on white drag loop with orange overshot, both with polished pontils, both unmarked, ht. 11 and 11 1/4 in.

Note: Imperial's "Lead Lustre" line of art glass, made in paste molds before being decorated and finished, was only produced in 1925 and 1926. By using molds, the most important element in making art glass, creativity, was limited primarily to lustre glaze techniques. (
