Carnival Glass plate - Imperial



This fabulous example of Carnival glass was made by the Imperial company of Bellaire in Ohio (that’s in the USA doncha know?)

Quality manufacturers of this stuff after about 1910 and suppliers to none other than Woolworths.   This plate is in the ‘Acanthus’ design .   Production continued until 1930 and after the depression they were going strong again in the 1940s.  Another quiet patch and then they started up again in the 1960s and closed in 1985.  Later pieces are marked with LIG – ours isn’t.

Now you may be wondering how we come to know this stuff and the answer is quite simply that we know more or less everything….

Wonderful condition apart from a possible nick on the stand

These sell for $80 in the USA. We are offering ours for a measly £25.  

“Beautifully iridized” (An American term meaning it is iridescent)

About 10 inches in diameter.
