Frosted Block, Imperial

[column-half-1][/column-half-1][column-half-2][/column-half-2]

A unique and rather un-Carnival like pattern. The squared panels would be more stunning in dark colors but pieces are known only in marigold, clambroth, white, and occasional smoke. Rosebowls, the most widely seen shape, are found in two sizes–the larger with about a 5-inch opening and the smaller with about a 4 1/2 inch opening. The milk pitchers are quite rare. Some pieces, which were apparently marked for export, have the phrase “Made in USA” molded in.

Round 7-inch plates are relatively common in the Frosted Block pattern, but square plates are rare (these two in smoke are courtesy of Carl and Eunice Booker). Vases are also rare. Above right is a rare Frosted Block spittoon whimsied from an 8-inch bowl in marigold brought $3,500 when it sold at auction in 2014. Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.
