Imperial Glass also called their opalescent colors "Sea Foam" which is a general term. The color of this lovely fruit bowl is Moonstone Blue Sea Foam.
Production of Lace Edge items began around 1935 during the Depression Era. This blue color was among the first offering.
It has been noted that individual items may exhibit different motifs on the exteriors but the differences did not seem important in the 1930's. Lace Edge items can have many different exterior decorations. They were known by Lines rather than names such as No. 743, No. 749, No. 780....etc. Hazel Marie Weatherman called the Lace Edge pieces "Katy".
My Imperial book, "Imperial Glass Encyclopedia Volume II, authored by the National Imperial Glass Collector's Society and James Measell, indicates this fruit bowl or one like it in a different color is No. 207F. See page 469.
This bowl measures 8-1/4" diameter and it is 2-1/2" to the top of the lace.
CONDITION: I do not feel or see any damage. There is some variation in the coloring which is the way it was manufactured.
The opalescence has a lot of fire in it.
