Imperial Art Glass "Lead Lustre" Vase, Bellaire, Ohio, early 20th century, form 618, vasiform with cased blue on white blown into an optic mold, orange rim, polished pontil, unmarked, ht. 5 3/4 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. (Imperialglass.net)
