I can't find a flaw on it. Can anyone help me identify the make and year, possibly pattern? Is this eyewinker?

Thanks!

    it's Imperial Glass #505, 'Bellaire' and had very long production period of 1910-1980. The later ones may be marked with the Imperial Glass logo. I have a decanter from '69 or '70 that is marked.

    It is Imperial, but was not part of the company's No. 505 Bellaire line. Many mistake it for that, but if you look closely you'll see the pattern is quite different. This vase is shown in original catalogs as part of Imperial's NuCut line. I believe it was reissued in the 1970s as part of their Collector's Crystal line, along with other pieces from their earlier NuCut line. Later made pieces will be marked IG.

    Alien~Vaseline glass is yellow -green color, originally called Canary. This piece is clear glass.

    This has a odd green hue to it. It's clear, but has a greenish tint to it. There are no markings.

    Make SURE you test it with a backlight. I have a vase very similar to this that I bought years ago that was supposed to be Vaseline. Unfortunately, I waited to test it some time later (I thought for sure it was under natural light) only to discover it wasn't.
