Imperial Glass Cathay Lu Tung bookend, Virginia Evans
Lu-Tung bookend, part of a line of frosted glass giftware called Cathay designed by VIrginia Evans for Imperial Glass. The bust is 7 1/2" tall. The base is hollow, the head is solid glass. Some of these are marked, "1949" but I cannot find a date or mark on this piece. Excellent condition, no chips, cracks or repairs. A little dust in the creases, it had sat on a bookshelf for many years. I did a little light cleaning to it.
