    The above photos are from my website. I invite viewers to visit/revisit it at This week I posted a milestone 500th unique example of Free Hand & Lead Lustre art glass.

    I've just added a new Section XV. "Imperial and Its People", of which I'm proud. In contains photos and profiles of Imperial workers/key people, all marks used by Imperial over its 80 year history, examples of some popular glass lines (the rest of the website is devoted to Free Hand & Lead Lustre art glass) and a great slideshow on what Imperial made, when and what was going on in world at large at that time.

    I also highly recommend sections IX. "Groupings" and X. "Exceptional and Rare Examples".

    All sections of the website have been given a cleaned up "new" look.

    I always welcome questions about Free Hand & Lead Lustre and am constantly looking for new photos/material.

    I believe you will find no better reference anywhere on this subject.

      Love that vase by Telesphore Naome, who worked at Val St. Lambert in Belgium before moving to Imperial in 1925!

      Phil, nothing new made in the 1980's, all production stopped in 1984. Owned by Lenox from 1977-1981, then a guy named Archur Lorch bought it in 1981 (later repossessed).

      Some tableware and animal figurines from old Heisey molds. See the last couple of pictures in this slideshow -

      My best to you,
