Imperial Grape Bowls and Plates, Imperial

This was Imperial's equivalent to Northwood's Grape and Cable and the line includes most of the common shapes found in Carnival. There is one large gouping of grapes and leaves in the center of plates and bowls. The 9-inch low ruffled bowl is in electric blue and sold for $2,200 in 1994 and again in 1997 for $5,000. Blue is a rare color for Imperial. On the right is a small plate in purple. Small plates measure about 6 inches across. Imperial (and it's successor companies), reproduced many items beginning in the 1960s.

Here are a couple of Imperial Grape items you don't see every day. On the left is a ruffled bowl in peach opal. Imperial made so little peach opal, one wonders if this was intentional. On the right is the nut bowl shape in Helios.
