Glass makers always sought to offer ordinary folks beautiful glassware that they could mass produce, that faithfully mimicked more expensive art glass made by Tiffany, Steuben, and others. Stretch glass definitely had a similar look and feel of much more expensive Favrille and Aurene glass. This Imperial Jewel vase is richly decorated in metallic color, with subtle stretch variations from working it after the glass was doped with metallic salts. A very pretty, and old example! Old Imperial cross mark on the bottom, likely dating this example to the 1920s, but this type of glass began to be manufactured in 1916. Condition: Some minor flaking around the bottom where the glass was ground to sit flat, and a mold or "straw" mark near the bottom. These are all shown in the pictures. Measures 6 1/2" tall and in 5" diameter at the widest point of flare.
