FLUTE Toothpick: The little toothpick measures 2 1/4” high with a top opening of 2”. It is 3 ¾” across to the outer most points of the handles. The collar base is 1 ¾” in diameter, having a 14 point star pressed into the underside of the base. The Imperial Iron Cross appears on the inside base. The standard Flute toothpicks have six panels. These are found in marigold, helios green, and purple. Rarely do they turn up in cobalt blue,  vaseline, or lime green.

FLUTE lamp:  Considering the rarity of these punch sets in any of the colors: marigold, purple, helios, green, emerald; it is rather a shame to see one in such a state of “ill-repute”.

FLUTE Candlesticks:  Although these are not listed in Carl O. Burns 1996 Imperial Book, we feel that they were simply over-looked. We believe that these Candlesticks rightfully belong in the Imperial Flute category. They are found in Imperial Catalog 104A, listed as part of the #700 line, just as the other shapes within this #700 listing.  Perhaps marigold was the only color produced? This particular style is not seen very often. Should any of our viewers have additional information surrounding these candleholders, we would appreciate hearing from you.

FLUTE Tumblers:  Flute #1: contains six panels, has a hexagonal shape and there is no collar base. Top and base are flared. It is known in marigold, and purple, with at least one amber example known. The flare alters measurements somewhat, but generally speaking, it is 3 ¼”- 4 ¼” in height.
Flute #2: Has six panels, a hexagonal base, has no collar base. It is much taller than Flute #1, has straight sides and no flare top or bottom. Reported only in purple, and is actually a tankard size tumbler.
Flute #3: Like the pitcher it was designed to compliment, there are nine Flute panels and this tumbler rests on a collar base. Marigold, purple, helios, and cobalt blue are the standard colors. Rare examples of aqua, smoke and clambroth have also been confirmed. No matching pitchers have surfaced in these three rare colors, but very likely were produced.

Dean & Diane Fry, 6/12

After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying,
“Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!”
For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication;  and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her”.
Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying “Amen! Alleluia!”
The a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying,
“Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’
And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.” (Revelation 19:1-9)
