    just bought this pretty vase at a thrift store.
    there are no markings.

    can anyone identify its year or maker or value?

    thanks in advance for your help.

      Imperial Glass #488; collectors usually call this "Poppy Show" or "Poppy Vase" tho' Imperial only gave a number in their catalog; made for many years so hard to pinpoint a date; might check completed auctions at eBay or other online sites for value.

      i see 2 listed on ebay one for $79 and one for $89. thanks.

      can't seem to find a year.

      without a makers mark it's difficult to date; unfortunately not all pieces got marked.

      one site I found did list white as produced 1974-1976

      looking thru the Imperial catalog I found a page of milk glass that had this vase shown; the catalog is 1914-1937. If you vase has no markings there is a good chance it is from these earlier productions.

      the top of that one is different than mine. the one in the book has many more dips.

      crimping is typically hand tooled and therefore does vary; wouldn't say that the number of crimps is necessarily indicative of age.
