The National Imperial Glass Collectors’ Society, Inc. was founded to
increase awareness, to encourage learning, to preserve history, and
to understand one of our greatest heritages, the American glass industry
and, more specifically, the Imperial Glass Corporation, one of the largest
and finest of all the hand-made glass houses.

For over eighty years, the people of the Imperial Glass Corporation
in Bellaire, Ohio, produced some of the most elegant hand-crafted glassware this country has known. The popularity of Imperial glassware, highly prized and collected today, is based on the creative artistry and craftsmanship of those people, the quality of the glass itself, and the diversity in the styles of glassware lines offered.
