    Picture 1, left to right:

    Decor #14: This is cased glass. The base glass is transparent light blue that was then cased in a mixed/marbleized layer of darker blue and opal. Then a final thin film of glossy/iridized metallic yellow-green lustre was applied as a top coating - inside as well as on the exterior of the vase.

    Decor #11: This is cased glass. The inner layer is bright blue. This is
    covered in a mixed/marbleized layer of blue and opal. That is then covered with a pale blue satin lustre. The throat has a sprayed on, iridescent dark blue finish with yellow and green highlights. Note that the satin finish is a lustre; the glass has not been acid etched.

    Decor #21: This is cased glass. The base glass is bone white glass that
    was then covered in a mixed/marbleized layer of darker blue and opal. Then a third layer (a thin, glossy, non-iridescent lustre of very light blue) was applied as a top coating. The throat has a sprayed on, iridized orange finish.

    Pictures 2-4, bottoms respectively. NOTE: Lead Lustre pieces did not have the beautiful Imperial label applied to them as did Free Hand - but handwritten oval "stock number" labels with shape & decoration numbers were used by the factory on both FH & LL. Such a stock number label is shown above.
