Dear Charll,

    I envy you on two counts:
1. A superb bottle and definitely Imperial Glass Works
2. From the collection of the late Kim Green of Alexandria, VA,
and a dear friend, who is sorely missed.
I last saw her at the LA Convention in 2016. A few days afterward, s
he collapsed just after arriving home, and died in January 2017.
We'd first connected in the Chicago convention in 1989.
And Kim Green, her husband Jim Pastorick, Clare Chu [then Lawrence]
and I, along with a number of other collectors, became good friends.
I even went to visit Kim & Jim in Old Town Alexandria VA., a few times.
My last visit there was to honour Kim's memory at a memorial in May 2017.

But I would date the bottle to ca. 1690 - 1750, since the Kangxi Imperial
Glass Works were founded in 1690.

If you are ever selling this bottle...
Best Wishes,
Joey
