Two Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Vases

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


Two Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Vases, Bellaire, Ohio, early 20th century, both form 771, one with aventurine drag loop on white with orange overshot, the other with aventurine on white hearts and vine decoration with orange overshot, both with polished pontils, both unmarked, ht. 6 1/2 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. (

Provenance: From the collection of Ronald L. Casebier.
Estimate $200-400
