Another Imperial Glass pattern, mostly made a bit later than the depression era is Vintage, full of grapes with leaves and twining vines. The only piece we had was this dinner plate in milk glass (no longer available).I recognized the mark on the back to identify this as Imperial Glass; otherwise it would have been difficult as many companies produced grape designs in milk glass. (Other companies called their patterns "Vintage" too, just to add to the confusion!) If this design intrigues you, you may want to check Replacements who shows the pattern in milk glass - three different listings for milk glass in fact - plus iridescent colors, and red, green, blue, smoke, pink and clear. I tried eBay to get a feel for how common this pattern is but searching for "Imperial Vintage" results in thousands of hits for any Imperial Glass piece that is vintage, not necessarily "Vintage" pattern. From what I could see Imperial made this as both a dinnerware/luncheon set and as decorative accessory pieces. My plate was dinner size and there are cups and saucers, smaller plates and place setting bowls listed. Most of the pieces Replacements shows in colors are decorative such as candle holders or comports. When we think of milk glass we don't automatically jump to Imperial. Westmoreland and Fenton made a zillion pieces in several patterns; Indiana and Hocking and a few others also had multiple patterns. But Imperial did produce some milk glass that has a sheen and in a few interesting patterns. Most of their milk glass dates to the 1950s-1970s, when white opaque glass was so much in vogue. If you enjoy milk glass or embossed flower or grape patterns then take a look at their interesting pieces.
