Thin Rib and Drape, Imperial

Similar to Imperial's Morning Glory miniature vases, this one has a drape effect between the six ribs. With a base size of 2 1/2 inches, the heights range from 4 inches to 6 1/2 inches. The pattern is occasionally referred to as Morning Glory and Drape, but the correct designation is Thin Rib and Drape. The pair above are a rare light blue with marigold overlay and a purple example, courtesy of Dick and Sherry Betker.
