Can you tell me what this is, any info history, estimated value?

It is light blue with a lot of pattern and fine texture. It is also thick glass.



Mystery Solved

    in my Imperial Glass catalog this is noted as NUCUT #537. The motif could be generically called hobstar and fan. At 4 1/2" it is called a footed jelly.

    Imperial Glass catalog this is noted as NUCUT #537... is there a pattern Letter?
  4. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
    no letter designation; Imperial often only assigned numbers at that time. The page is headlined Moulded NUCUT Glass. There are several numbered pieces illustrated that were included in assortment containers. On Replacements they have one under 212; but then "R" does have multiple errors in their listings that sometimes causes others to replicate same. The 212 is illustrated in the same catalog; 212 is very similar to 537. Try a google image search with: Imperial Nucut

    Ok thank you TallCakes.

    I found it similar but not the same color.... just similar. Ebay seems to be all over the place as well... does not indicate if is any valuable etc. I will keep looking Something should turn up eventually. I will love to encounter more of this pieces is this color ice blue? Aqua Blue? they are just gorgeous.

    unfortunately the catalog reprint is black and white drawings for the NUCUT and no mention of colors that I see. The valuation section list $18-$23 for this piece; but then in today's market book valuations are almost meaningless. Probably best not to be too specific and just use blue for color as many folks will have a different name for the same shade of blue.

    Imperial's Nucut was introduced around 1911. It was made in clear only at that time. In the late 1920s some pieces were made in Rose Marie, Imperial's name for their deep pink glass. Imperial reissued many of their patterns, and this is one of them. Other colors were not made before the 1960s. If you look closely in the bottom of the bowl, you may find Imperial's logo, I G. Pieces in various colors were made even later when Lenox bought out Imperial in the 1970s, they added an L to the IG mark.
