IMPERIAL CARNIVAL GLASS, TALL RIPPLE VASE, PURPLE, ELECTRIC IRIDESCENCE - For Sale
IMPERIAL CARNIVAL GLASS, TALL RIPPLE VASE, PURPLE, ELECTRIC IRIDESCENCE
For Sale is a piece of Carnival Glass made by The Imperial Glass Company of Bellaire, Ohio. The item is a Vase and the pattern is known as "Ripple". The Vase is a tall size as it stands 12 7/8" tall and has a 3 1/4" base diameter. It measures approximately 4" in diameter at the top opening. This is considered a "Middle" size Vase in Ripple as that is determined by the base diameter.
The exterior of the Vase depicts crisp horizontal rings that start at the base and softens in definition nearer the top. It is meant to simulate the rings or ripple from a pebble hitting the surface of a calm pond or water. 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 Purple. There is an Electric Blue/Purple Gold iridescence as you can see extremely strong hues of Golds, Fuchsia and Blue/Purples all over the exterior. My camera cannot capture the brilliant iridescence this Vase has. The Iridescence runs the entire height of the Vase. It is very strong at the bottom and the top.
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 20 point star pattern on the bottom of the vase which is the norm for this lovely collectible in this size.
