CARNIVAL GLASS KING COME BY ~ COME BUY ~ COME BACK NO EXCUSE RETURN POLICY - SATISFACTION GUARANTEED YES***I COMBINE SHIPPING***YES IMPERIAL HEAVY GRAPE FABULOUS IRIDESCENCE!! CARNIVAL GLASS, as it is called today, was originally marketed with the following descriptors: "Venetian Art", "Burnished Metallic Art", "Parisian Art", "Mexican Aurora", Iridescent", etc. Carnival Glass was created using a process of spraying hot glass with metallic salt solutions, introduced to AMERICA in 1907 by the FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY, to provide a low-cost method of iridizing glassware. The standard method of making glassware involved filling a mold with molten glass. When the mold was full, the glass was snipped off the gathering rod with metal shears cooler than the glass. The glass touched by the shears hardened and was free to migrate through the glass when the glass was pressed into the mold. Wherever this hardened glass ended up, it became what we now call a "straw mark". The formed glass (called a blank) was removed from the mold. Some pieces received no additional shaping after being removed from the mold and are still referred to as a "blank", but mostly the blank was re-heated to make it more pliant, then hand-shaped to final form by spinning to flatten into a plate; swinging to form a vase; flaring to form a bowl. The edge was then manipulated by ruffling, or crimped into one of three designs: pie crust, candy ribbon or 3-IN-1. When shaping was finished, the new FENTON process of creating Iridized Glass was employed. The still-hot glass was sprayed with metallic salt solution(s) which bonded with the glass and formed a metallic "skin" that reflected various spectra of light. The chemical composition of the spray used and the thickness of application determined the hue(s) and intensity of the IRIDESCENCE unique to the CARNIVAL GLASS we're so in love with today! IMPERIAL Carnival Glass (1907-1930s) is NOT MARKED, except for the scarce 'Iron Cross' maker mark. Impressed marking of glass "IG" was begun when it was realized that using paper labels on re-issued Carnival Glass was not a viable method of permanently indicating re-issue status. It has been my experience that stippling on the bottom of the marie denotes a re-issue from which the label has disappeared. GORGEOUS SMOKE Brush and/or Double Iridized 4¾" Small Berry Bowl. Excellent undamaged condition. SPECTACULAR IRIDESCENCE!! The previous owners of this Berry Bowl consulted with Frank Fenton, who verified that the bowl was "brush iridized". I would say that this Small Berry Bowl has Smoke base glass. Whether this bowl was originally "brush iridized" or was later re-iridized - perhaps by the Fenton* factory - is impossible to say. Whatever the case, while not one-of-a-kind (there are 6), it is uniquely different and has GREAT iridescence. Berry bowl is 4¾" x 2" (+-) *This pattern was re-issued by Imperial (marked) and reproduced by Fenton (marked) and L. E. Smith (marked), but I feel that this set is Vintage Imperial (UNmarked) Carnival Era glass. Click to open supersize image Click to open supersize image Click to open supersize image Click to open supersize image CONDITION IS A SUBJECTIVE EVALUATION Antique Carnival Glass is approximately 100 years old and will have certain internal and external flaws and imperfections inherent to the production process. UNLESS SEVERE, I DO NOT CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING AS DAMAGE: air bubbles; inclusions (ash, cinder, bugs); straw marks (shear marks); tool marks; incomplete or malformed edges; uneven legs or bowed base (rocking); missing or pooled iridescence; heat checks (internal separations from uneven cooling); rough seams or extra glass at seams; webbed or pulled edge points, etc. You will see these production issues in the photos. You can decide if they are acceptable or not. BE PREPARED FOR THE REALITY OF ANTIQUE GLASSWARE BEAUTY OFTEN COMES WITH BIRTHMARKS IRIDESCENCE IS ALL ABOUT LIGHTING & REFLECTION GREAT LIGHTING = GREAT COLOR My photos are taken indoors under diffused fluorescent lighting that mimics noon sun (5200° K). White, Smoke, Marigold & Ice Colors look best against a dark background. I show you the iridescent beauty that is possible under strong lighting.
