Lucky to have come across this on Facebook Marketplace. Just a quick call to my son who picked it up for me. Had to wait until two visit (forgot to pick it up the first time) and was happy to bring it home to display with my other coloured items with Corn Flower.
I thought this little piece was so cute. It is Imperial’s line no. 780 – Laced Edge. I believe that the production period for this piece would have been between 1935 and 1950.
The cutting is the Corn Flower decoration by the W.J. Hughes Corn Flower Company of Ontario, Canada. The cutting appears on both sides of the piece.

These pieces are very common – see them all over the place! Crimped edge bud vase. This was cut by the Hughes Company. Krista Taylor – Canadian Identification & Price Guide to W.J. Hughes Corn Flower (neat book) – indicates that the blanks were produced by the Louie Glass Company and West Virginia Glass. Her sources were a 1951 company catalogue and a 1981 catalogue.
In 1951 the vase cost $1.00. In 1981 the price was $7.50. I can’t recall what I paid for it!
