Dear Beth,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I wanted to get back to you on this; without dimensions I am flying a bit blind but it looks as though this is approximately 12 inches long and 8 inches wide, with a height of 4 or 5 inches? I've used those dimensions to value yours but if I am very far off, please let me know what the accurate dimensions are and I will see if my valuation needs to be changed.

Imperial milk glass is selling at very low values these days. I can find no comparable examples selling within the past 3-5 years for more than $100 and in most case, below $50. The following auction sales have been consulted in researching the fair market value of your open bowl:

Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, you have:

A vintage American Imperial white milk glass open-rim oval bowl
mid 20th century
Of candlewick design, with original doeskin finish.
Approximately 5 inches high, 12 inches long by 8 inches deep
PROVENANCE: Acquired at an estate sale in Hoschton, Ga
$40-60 (represents a fair market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary).

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
