Floral and Optic, Imperial
The most prominent feature of Floral and Optic is the floral band around the exterior of the pieces. The paneled interior is what is referred to as optic. The rosebowls and plates, sometimes called cake or chop plates, were made from the bowls. Oddly, this is one of the few Imperial patterns in which red appears with any regularity. Many pieces in this pattern have a stretch effect and are usually more desirable. The red bowl above sold for $400 in 1995, the smoke rosebowl is courtesy of Carl and Eunice Booker.
