Grape Imperial Purple Carnival Glass Wine Decanter
A magnificent example of highly iridescent carnival glass. While it is very hard to capture in photos, the decanter reflects light beautifully, revealing variations from deep purple to an turquoise-like blue, enhanced by stippling on the leaves and bottom. The decanter has its original stopper which has the same level of color depth and iridescence.
This is a re-issue of the original, as it is clearly stamped with the "I" superimposed over the letter "G", dating it to the early 1950's. The decanter measures 12" with the stopper. There is no damage and the item is in "like-new" condition.
