|Floral and Optic - Imperial|
|The most prominent feature of Floral and Optic is the floral band around the exterior of the pieces. The paneled interior is what is referred to as optic. These pieces have a collar base but actually stand on three toed feet. Rosebowls and plates, sometimes called cake or chop plates, were made from the bowls. Oddly, this is one of the few Imperial patterns in which red appears with any regularity. Many pieces in this pattern have a stretch effect and are usually more desirable.

Other than the red, smoke and MMG pieces shwon, other colors include clambroth, marigold, purple, teal and white.
