Theme of Contest’s Last Day – Your Favorite Piece or Color

For the last day of the contest, everyone should be able to participate. Show us your favorite piece or color in the comments below.

I’m showing our white Raspberry pitcher from Northwood. It is a water pitcher. We also have the milk pitcher. Now…I don’t know if this is my favorite white piece, but white is my favorite color – especially when it is frosty with nice iridescence.

If you are seeing this on one of the other Facebook sites that I share to, then please go to the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page and share your favorite piece.

Thanks for taking part in the contest. I believe the winners will be announced tomorrow. Good luck and have fun. See MoreSee Less

We do love our pastels and this Peacock at the Fountain compote is undoubtedly my favorite, waited for years to find a superb example and we finally took one home this past April in Kansas City. We love it!

This is my favorite piece Northwood Good Luck plate which happen to be in ice blue. I love my blues, whether cobalt, renninger, pastel ice blue, sapphire and celeste. Cheers! 😀

My favorite color is cherry red iridescence on cherry red amberina glass.

Peacock @ the Fountain is my favorite pattern.

Hello! Well I have many favorite “typical” pieces in my collection, however, sharing this one because maybe you can help me out. I don’t know what this is! Picked it up about six years ago and did a lot of research but can’t come up with any answers. Definitely cobalt blue. With strawberries on one side and grapes and maybe a pear? on the other side. It’s a 6” tall goblet. Whatever it is, I love it!

I love an emerald piece, but I agree with a nice frosty white color being able catch my fancy immediately!

This was hard. I have a favorite piece but also a favorite color; not on the same piece . . . So I decided on this Peacocks on a fence in gorgeous amethyst

My Northwood Ice Blue Daisy and Plume nut bowl. It has the Blackberry interior.

That’s a beauty, Rebecca Durflinger-Ruschel. It would match the rose bowl that we recently found. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful piece!

My Dugan Brooklyn Bridge in radium mirror finish. Its so shiny that you need sunglasses to look at it lol

That is a nice radium finish. Isn’t collecting carnival fun? Thanks for sharing.

Its very addictive and fun !!!! Lol

How about three very beautiful Orange Tree shaving mugs and the right colors for Christmas

Love the white!

Theme of Day 5 – Enameled Carnival Glass

This is Double Daisy on a rather unusual shaped water pitcher. Please share your enameled pieces today.

Many of you think of carnival glass as having a molded pattern, but that is not necessary the case. Some of the earliest pieces were made from molds that were already in production. After they were iridized some talented ladies would paint designs on the piece.

I hope that there are many of you who will share your enameled pieces in the comment section below.

If you find this post on one of the other glass sites on Facebook, please go to the International Carnival Glass Association page and comment on your piece there.

Thanks and have fun. See MoreSee Less

For-Get-Me Not in Blue By Fenton

The only enameled item we have is this little Fenton creature with painted eyes and nose signed by Kim Burley.

What a beautiful basket and bell. That fits the bill. Thanks for sharing, Cherrie Soash DeSauvage.
