Imperial Glass Company
made the Cape Cod pattern from 1932 to 1984. Cape Cod is a lovely pattern, combining
rings of diamond-hobnails (like English Hobnail and Miss America patterns) with large open diamonds and thumbprints. Due
to the many facets reflecting light, Cape Cod is a very sparkly pattern.|
Cape Cod displays well with the English Hobnail and Miss America patterns. The goblets are shaped much like English Hobnail goblets, with a very similar square foot. And although the bowls of the goblets are a different shape than Miss America goblets, the stems and feet are very similar. The band of hobnails around the top accents both patterns very nicely.
Capacity measurements are filled to the rim. Cape Cod was made in clear or crystal glass and a few colors. Minor variations in the shade of clear Cape Cod glass are common, and usually not bothersome. I don't have any documentation for the following, but I have been told by collectors that the clear glass may be old but hasn't been exposed to much sunshine, the glass turning purple (actually a very pale lavender) is old, and the glass turning faintly yellow is older still.
