Imperial Cape Cod was the favorite pattern produced by the Imperial Glass Company of Bellaire, Ohio, for many years, from its inception as a Mother's Oats premium in 1932 until Imperial's closing in 1984. This beautiful and durable pattern was produced in crystal and several colors, as well as with a variety of decorative treatments. The wide range of Cape Cod glass included place settings, serving pieces, accessories, and items made for private mold customers. These are shown in over 420 color photos, accompanied by an informative, well-researched text. Each caption provides the mold number, description, significant information, and current value. Collectors will also appreciate the separate price guide listing, which includes mold numbers, descriptions, production dates, and values for all of the crystal items. Imperial collectors and all who admire fine glassware will find this an invaluable reference and a joy to behold.
