Production Slideshow

While this website is almost exclusively devoted to the art glass made by Imperial from 1923 through 1925, the company's history stretches eight decades, from 1904 to 1984. With production to match the Imperial plant's enormous size, an almost limitless array of glassware was made over Imperial's eighty years of operation.


Imperial's "other glassware" comes in every conceivable shape and in a multitude of colors, from extraordinary creations to common utilitarian pieces, from pressed glass to stretch glass to carnival glass and on and on; a truly remarkable range of function and decoration. A vast quantity of Imperial glassware can be found today, e.g. on any given time there are approximately 10,000 pieces for sale just on eBay. 


Here is a limited, "top level" view of some of what was made and when:
