Description
This large chocolate slag glass swan was made by Imperial Glass of Bellaire, Ohio. The color on this piece, sometimes called caramel slag, is deep and dramatic with lovely white marbling. The mark on the bottom is the raised I over G which was used from 1951 to 1973, when Imperial was sold for the first of three times before it went out of business for good in 1984.

This swan has a 1 1/2 inch long crack on one side from the edge down, along with several tiny rough chips along the edge, seen when the swan is facing left. These are shown in photograph #2 and close up in #4. The price reflects this damage; as you can see, when it's turned facing the right (or angled when turned left, as in photograph #1) it presents beautifully.

The swan measures 9 1/2 inches long, 5 1/4 inches wide and is about 4 inches tall at the highest point of the body. It weighs 2 pounds 6 ounces and while it looks lovely by itself, it makes a great candy dish.
