For sale is a piece of Carnival Glass made by The Imperial Glass Company of Bellaire, Ohio. The item is a Flower Vase and the pattern is known as "Ripple".

The exterior of the Vase depicts crisp horizontal rings that start at the base and soften in definition nearer the top.

The interior of the vase has evenly space vertical ribbing to give more depth to this pleasing pattern. There is a ruffled rim with six ruffles and the color is Marigold that graduates to a clear base. There is stong iridescence and you can see hues of Blue/Purple Gold, and Fuschia. The iridescence is "Brilliant".
The Vase is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no chips, cracks, nicks or dings. The piece is not signed but guaranteed to be vintage Imperial. There is a 16 point star on the bottom of the vase which is the norm for this lovely collectible. The is the smallest Mini Ripple Vase I have ever owned. It is quite hard to find these smaller than 8".
