Imperial Glass Purple Slag Lidded Dresser Box (Mold #6992) Vintage 1971 Only
This is a lovely, balanced example of slag glass. The dish is glossy deep purple moving to swirls of gray and blue. Top moves from lavender to gray and white with the handle reverting back to deep purple. It measures 8" L x 5-1/2" W x 4-1/2" H.
Design details: beaded sides with bar handles, channeled edges and legs, embossed ivy leaves and vines on undersides of both lid and box, and large oval incised starburst on the bottom with stylized outer edge.
Imperial Glass introduced 33 slag glass products between 1966 and 1975. Imperial was one of four American companies to offer the popular slag glass introduced in Britain in the 1850's; some of its patterns resemble those early British designs. Imperial acknowledges this borrowing in the form of blue stickers placed on its major pieces.
This dresser box is one of Imperial's best pieces in the slag glass category. I am pleased to be able to bring it to you in my Affordably Collectable store.
