Imperial Glass: Volume 1, covering patterns A-Cane, is the research product of the National Imperial Glass Collector's Society - you couldn't ask for a more authoritative source! And yes, vintage Candlewick is covered in great depth. Below is a PARTIAL listing of patterns included in this volume:

  • Imperial marks sometimes found on glass, including NuCut. (NuCut is often found in Early American Pressed Glass, also known as EAPG.)
  • Acid etch glass. (Glass with a satin, soft finish rather than crystal clear)
  • Ameila
  • American Always
  • American Beauty Rose
  • Americana
  • Animal figurines
  • Anniversary Goblets
  • Antique Buttons
  • Art Glass (Imperial made some really exquisite art glass, including some gold & blue iridescent finishes normally attributed as Stueben Aurene glass.)
  • Aurora Jewels
  • Atterbury
  • Bambu
  • Beaded Block & Frosted Block
  • Black Glass
  • Bedroom Glass (night set tumblers & bottles, dresser dishes)
  • Cambridge
  • Cambridge Caprice
  • Candlesticks
  • Candlewick, No. 400 (the original vintage Candlewick, a huge section, about 30% or so of the book)
  • Glass Baskets

--- John Kincaid, Collector Bookstore


Imperial Glass produced millions of items, many un-attributed by collectors today. Imperial did it all -- blowing, pressing, cutting, etching, and more.

This first volume is packed with information and photos featuring art glass, animal figurines, covered dishes, and patterns whose names begin with A, B, and C (through Cane, including Candlewick). About 1,000 pieces are shown in color (including ad/catalog reprints), plus hundreds of other items in black and white.
