I particularly want to acknowledge here the many contributions of Wayne and Pamela Balash and the late Ron Casebier. Early after this website was established in August 2009, they became my partners in this effort. Their advice, enthusiasm and many hours spent providing photos from their extensive collections have had a significant positive impact on the development of this site.


Also invaluable is the ongoing support of my wife Mary Ann as well as early conversations with Richard Ross and Doug Archer.


In more recent years, also greatly benefiting and sustaining this website were the large number of photos contributed by Jeff Easton, Frank Ford and Neil & "Eddie" Unger, as well as individual photos provided by many other Imperial Art Glass collectors and enthusiasts. When so desired, individual gallery photos are attributed to those so gratiously providing them.


On behalf of all Imperial Free Hand & Lead Lustre collectors everywhere . . . thank you.
