Aurora Jewels: Contemporary Imperial Carnival Glass
This is a wonderful four page catalogue of Imperial's Contemporary Carnival Glass in their beautiful "Aurora Jewels" (cobalt blue) line.

* The 3-Swan vase was originally a Duncan Miller mould - it was their "Swan Vase (No. 3)", as shown in this 1934 ad. Like many glass companies, Imperial acquired mould from other factories.
Duncan Miller did not make this piece in Carnival Glass.
