|Most collectors refer to this pattern simply as Acanthus, but some call it Acanthus Leaf to distinguish it from Imperial's classic era pattern. The two are nothing alike. This one has distinct leaves with pronounced veins. These were first made in 1968 in Sunset Ruby (red), white (compote only), pink, Meadow Green (ice green), purple and yellow. The bowls vary in width from about 7 inches to almost 9. The red compotes are usually more extremely ruffled than the white one shown. Also known in a creamer and sugar set.
