A rare and stunning Imperial Glass Co ice bucket. Imperial Glass Co. made a number of Mid-Century glassware patterns that included real 22k gold in the paint. This particular pattern mimics a "barrel" right down to the nail studs and wood texture. This pattern came in an amber colored glass and a clear glass. Heavy in weight, this Mid Century ice bucket is nothing short of spectacular.
The Imperial Glass Company was founded in 1901 by Edward Muhleman, with production beginning in 1904. Their handmade glasswares were sold worldwide and were typically made of pressed glass patterns. This Hollywood Regency line, which was manufactured from 1965 to 1974, gilded with real 22k gold and is the quintessential style of the Hollywood Regency Era.
Hallmarks: The IG (Imperial Glass) hallmark can be found on the bottom of the ice bucket
Measurements: 5" tall by 5 1/4" in diameter
Condition: Excellent condition. This ice bucket appears to have never been used. The gold is vibrant. The glass is perfect. There are a few spots where the gold didn't get "filled in" when the ice bucket was made (completely common with Imperial Glass Co glasses and it is very, very minimal...we like to be nit-picky and thorough when describing our vintage glassware). In short, this ice bucket is in excellent, near pristine condition. Cheers!
