About the Imperial Glass Iron Cross Mark:

Application was filed on May 19, 1920 for the 'Iron Cross' and Unknown 'IM PE RI AL' used in combination. Approval was granted on August 16, 1921.

This mark was in use sometime prior to the date of filing the application. The Company ceased using this mark in the late 1920's.

NOTE: Although unconfirmed as a possible initial date of usage, Imperial may have combined the registered 'Double I' with a variation of the IMPERIAL letters used in 1913 and registered in 1914. If so, this new mark may have replaced the earlier version and been put into use as early as sometime in 1914.
