    I inherited these pieces from my great grandmother and know very little about them. Hence my reason for turning to this site. From what I have researched they are made by the Imperial Glass Company. The decantur is approximately 12 inches in height and the four what appear to be shot glasses are about 4 inches tall. The decantur is marked on the bottom with an IG embossed together, however the shot glasses do not bear the same markings but are identical in pattern. I've been unable to find any like this so have no idea the background or price range. However I did in fact find a similiar decantur on an eBay link from this site. The pattern was identical but the color was identified as smoke. If anyone is able to give me some insight to this collection I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank You for your time...

      you decanter and cordial (I say cordial 'cause they do appear to be smaller than wines) set is Imperial Glass #612 Star and File in an EAPG pattern that was first introduced in 1904. The superimposed IG mark was used from 1951 thru 1972; check the inside bottom of the cordials for the mark as IG often placed the mark there for stems like wine glasses rather than on the bottom.
