Comments On Imperial

Posting Number 2679   Date: 03/29/17     Return to Posting List

WOW! Beautiful Imperial vases. I have dealt in a lot of Imperial glass over the years and have never seen the Cintra one.

There are so few Imperial glass collectors left that it is sad but on a positive note, the simple ones go in new houses nicely because of their clean lines and classic shapes along with the shiny finishes. People that know nothing about glass absolutely LOVE the shiny finishes so Imperial glass has basically turned into decorator glass.

Thank you for sharing the vases and also the information about the open salt convention. It is great that we can cross over into new and fun areas of collecting.

Back and Forth On Open Salts

First, John Styler responded yesterday, tongue in cheek, about open salts:

Open Salters; They are dangerous if you have unknowing help. Our maid poured all the open salts into the sugar bowls after a dinner party we had. A week later at another dinner one of the guest said "sorry, but this is the worst coffee I have ever had" after he added what we thought was sugar. We should have known when we saw the empty salters; now how do you explain something like this tactfully to help.

Jan Baer responds to John,

The woman cleaning had no problem putting used food back. Did she pour the half-drunk milk glasses back into the carton? Yuck.

Three Shelves--Part 1

Let's Start with the top shelf of David Chadwick-Brown's secretary

From the top down, a dark blue jade grotesque (7535), green aurene lamp base (915), with brown aurene shade (822) and citron bowl (2942) with companion twist stem candlesticks (686).



Color:Dark Blue Jade


Size:12 in wide

The green aurene is somewhat unusual, for it is iridized, as are blue and gold aurene. Usually, it is only the leaf and vine decoration on top of red, brown, green, yellow, and turquoise that makes them into 'aurenes.' This green, however, shows the same tin chloride sheen that blue and gold pieces have (and which sheen several other green aurene pieces I have do not exhibit).

The citron bowl never passed muster, apparently, and was never put on the website, the suggestion being that it was not Steuben! The brown shade on the green base also met a similar exclusion.
