THE SPOTLIGHT ON HEISEY
Photos and article by Martha McGill

1405 IPSWICH IN STIEGEL BLUE
An HCC member recently found this set at a small flea market in Southern California. It consists of two footed center pieces with vases and “A” prisms and a footed floral bowl. All pieces are in Stiegel Blue (Cobalt), except for the prisms. Very few pieces in the pattern were made in Cobalt. The small vase inserts for the center pieces are especially difficult to find in Cobalt.

Heisey’s 1405 Ipswich line was inspired by a Sandwich Glass pattern known as “Comet.” It was produced from 1931 to 1946 and reissued in Crystal only from 1952 to 1953. Production in Cobalt would have occurred sometime between 1933 and 1941. It was made in Crystal, Flamingo, Moongleam and Sahara in addition to Cobalt. Not all items in the pattern were made in all colors. The goblet was made in Alexandrite and is considered rare in that color. The center piece and floral bowl were not reissued by Imperial.
