From my collection here are two examples of Imperial Free Hand with "Lustre Glaze" decors (heavy iridescence and/or metallic lustres), FH 10 (8.25" tall) and FH 21 (10" tall). Both have clear base glass. The FH 10 example is quite rare in that its iridescence is in two almost carnival glass colors when typically these Lustre Glaze examples are uniformly bronze/dark purple in color. Note that the FH 21 example has a wafer/connector between the foot and the body of the vase to connect the two pieces while FH 10 is one hand blown piece with two attached "arms".
