Imperial Peachblow

This line was introduced in 1964. It sought to imitate the color and design of the 1880's glass line of the same name done by Hobbs-Brockunier of Wheeling, WVa. That firm had itself drawn its inspiration from the Morgan vase, a famous 18th-century Chinese "peachbloom" porcelain vase.
