Imperial vase
« on: May 25, 2014, 07:11:20 PM »
Hi friends, I stopped at a barn sale after church. I found an Imperial clear glass small vase. The sticker say's Imperial 51757  5 in.  C8Y.

I do not know what the latter means. It looks slightly like candle wick beads but, i'm sure it is not.

Thanks for any help on the pattern number. Bob

Hi Bob, I believe this is a retail store label and not the glass makers label. With that said the vase appears to be  pressed glass with the manufacture unknown to me.

Sorry Bob, I stand corrected, after further research I think your vase is "Imperial" but other than that...an exact match has not been found.
