These moulds were Cambridge Glass originally and they were part of the Everglade line.It is frosted then the metallic carnival spray is added creating this very rich finish. These particular items were made for only a few years - between 1971 - 1972. Aurora Jewels was made by Imperial from June 1970 until April 1972. Please see full description, from the book "Imperial Glass Encyclopedia" by The National Imperial Glass Collectors' Society, Edited by James Measell, in the last picture in this ad. It is a very heavy set, weighing 6 lb. And requires a 12x11x13 box. There needs to be adequate protection to prevent breakage as well. We use bubble wrap, peanuts, tissue paper and boxes big enough to keep the items safe and secure. When your item arrives, PLEASE do not rush and open it up immediately.
Let the box adjust to the room temperature of your home/office, etc. For about an hour or so, then open it. Changes can affect vintage glass and porcelain and so allowing your package to come to room temperature before opening it is a wise idea especially during the very cold winter months and the very hot summer months.
