Welcome back to another edition of Vintage Fascination. This find is from a couple of months ago but I am just now getting it unpacked and ready for use.
As my daughter and I walked into our local Goodwill I spotted a huge lot of milk glass in the display case. I hustled over to check it out. It is a luncheon service for eight with lots of extras to go with it in Imperial Glass’s Vintage Grape pattern. The price was good and it was senior day with 25% off so how could I not take all this milk glass goodness home with me.
Imperial Glass Corporation founded in 1901 was located in Bellaire, Ohio. It became a subsidiary of Lenox, Inc., in 1973 and sold to Arthur R. Lorch in 1981 eventually going bankrupt in 1984. Imperial Glass produced this pattern from 1950 until 1980.
First up are the luncheon plates with an all over grape pattern. The plates are 8 inches wide. The bread and butter plates are identical to the luncheon plates but only 6 3/4 inches wide. With an all over pattern, they are simply stunning.
The saucers have an embossed grape leaf in the center
and the footed cups are so sweet.
The set includes eight Champagne/Tall Sherbet glasses. Won’t they be perfect to serve something pretty and pink?
The set also includes eight 5 3/8 inch water goblets.
The extras include:
Quarter Pound Covered Butter Dish
Footed Creamer and Open Sugar
Salt and Pepper Shakers
I wonder if originally the set included dinner plates or maybe it was always just a luncheon set. I can’t wait to do a tablescape with these dishes so be looking for it soon.
By purchasing the set, each piece cost me less than fifty cents. Of course, my daughters just roll their eyes at me and remind me that I already have too many dishes and it’s true.
Thank you for visiting today and come back soon!
