|Star Medallion - Imperial|
|Star Medallion is aptly named with a large multi-point star on an octagonal medallion resting against a cane background. Lots of shapes are found in this pattern. While predominently found in marigold; clambroth, a rare purple or smoke are found on occasion.
Shown above to the left, is the most available piece of Star Medallion; a 5 1/2 inch tall milk pitcher. Also shown is a 2 1/2 inch tall custard cup. In the photo to the right are a 6 inch tall ruffled compote, a 4 inch tall sherbert with a 5 inch diameter top, a 6 1/2 inch tall goblet and a 9 3/4 inch chop plate in clambroth.
|To the left is a photo of the two tumblers found in Star Medallion. The standard tumbler is 4 inchjes tall while the lemonade tumblers is 4 1/2 inches tall and has a slight flare at the top. It is curious that with two tumblers known, no matching water pitcher has ever been found.
To the right is a Star Medallion 6 inch tall celery vase in marigold.
|Bowls come in various shapes in Star Medallion. They are typically small in size. The bowls below are square, round with collar base, round with flat base, round flared with collar base and a two-handled bonbon.|
|Star and File pieces are often mis-identified as Star Medallion by auctioneers and thus some older pricing guides may have shapes listed under Star Medallion that do not in fact exist. There are no water pitchers, 6 inch plates, wine decanters, wines, cordials or handled celery vases in the Star Medallion pattern. These are most likely Star and File pieces.
Compotes in an ice blue or pink color would be contemporary pieces.
