Three Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Iridescent Vases, Bellaire, Ohio, early 20th century, forms 655-22, 412-22, 618-22, all in blue on white drag loop decoration with orange overshot, all with polished pontils, all unmarked, ht. 10, 6 1/2, 7 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. (Imperialglass.net)
