Jul 24, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a two-piece epergne in the Imperial Glass Corporation’s Crocheted Crystal line. It stands 11 ½” high and has a diameter of 10 ¼”, making it quite an impressive centerpiece for the table. This pattern was originally bought out in 1935 as Lace Edge, but became Crocheted Crystal from 1943 to 1950, when it was sold exclusively by Sears as part of their Harmony House line.
