Rubigold / Peacock / Rubigold &
Carnival on Milk Glass
These three different colors were applied over milk glass. Some of the glass items were made only in one of the three over sprays and other glass items were made in two and maybe all three of the over sprays. This glass was made as samples for Sears Dept. Stores, but Sears never approved the glass. These samples were then sold through the Imperial Gift Shop to sell it out. These colors never showed up in Imperial's Regular line of glass ware. Below is a list of know items made with this type of carnival over spray. The overspray varied from one to the next, the value below is based upon the quality of iridescence on each piece.
|1.) #10D, 10 1/2" Open Roses Plate, known in all three over sprays.||$95.00 - $250.00|
|2.) #21, 6" Footed Grape Vase, known in Rubigold and Peacock over spray.||$85.00 - $150.00|

Amethyst Carnival Glass
There were three items that were made in Amethyst Carnival before 1973. All three items will have the (IG) Imperial Glass trade mark. These items are;
|1.) 10 1/2" US Capitol Plate that was made for Ward Russell's Carnival Glass Club.||$125.00 - $175.00|
|2.) 4 1/2" tall Zodiac Open Compote, made for Ward Russell while visiting the Imperial Glass Factory, only 13 made.||$225.00- Plus|

All these items can be considered extremely rare and hard to find pieces of Imperial Carnival Glass due to the very limited production of each item. The Amethyst color was later put into the line when Lenox took over Imperial , but all the pieces were then marked with the (LIG) trademark.
