This lovely piece of Pressed Glass was made by Imperial Glass in the mid- 1970s. The name of the pattern is called Collectors Crystal. This bowl was featured in their 1975-76 catalog and this is what they had to say about the pattern;
These hand crafted, fire polished clear crystal items are hand pressed replicas of early cut glass. Intricate molds are so finely detailed that each piece sparkles with shimmering reflections of a hand cut original. Imperial created these moulds over 50 years ago (this was written in 1975 so now more that 80 years ago) and today finds more nostalgic interest in these designs of yesteryear, than when originally introduced.
This beautiful Collector Crystal Center or Salad Bowl stands 4 7/8 high and is 11 ¾ in diameter. This bowl was also used as a small punch bowl with the addition of a base that it sat on.
Our bowl is in excellent condition without any nicks, chips or cracks.
