For over eighty years, the people of the Imperial Glass Corporation in Bellaire, Ohio produced some of the most elegant hand-crafted glassware this country has known. Highly prized and collected today, the popularity of Imperial glassware, is based on the creative artistry and craftsmanship of those people. The quality of the glass itself and the diversity in the styles of glassware lines offered made this glass highly sought after and collectable.
The Imperial Glass Company was founded in 1901 by Edward Muhleman. The handmade glass wares were sold worldwide and the factory was one of the largest glass factories under one roof. The company’s most famous product was their "Candlewick" series.
Imperial hit rough times in the early 1970s and was close to bankruptcy. The company was purchased by another glass manufacturer and began to manufacture everyday glass items, but lack of demand eventually led to its closure in 1984.
