WELCOME TO THE ICGA WEBSITE.
Please browse our site to learn more about the beauty of classic (or “old”) carnival glass. If you would like to learn more about our membership, or would like to join our organization, please click here.

If you are a member of ICGA, then I’m sure you will recognize this photo of Thin Panel vases that was a part of our last newsletter. This pattern was made by the Dugan Glass Company in the early 1900’s. As you can see there is a nice variety of shapes and heights in this pattern. However, they are found only in two colors. Can you name those colors? Just look at the photo and you will see. The author of the article has been collecting these vases for quite a few years now.

Miniature morning glories, amethyst jack in the pulpit and a smoke rococo

The Imperial Glass Company seems to get slighted when talking about carnival glass, but in my opinion, I think they made some of the prettiest purple pieces of carnival glass. Take this Chatelaine water set – the iridescence on the purple base glass just sparkles. As far as I know, this set is only found in purple, and the pitcher and tumblers are the only shapes known.

Are we allowed to share to another group? It’s Thrift Store Finds!

Had a hard time deciding on my favorite. Here is my amethyst Oriental Poppy. Weird angle but I didn’t want you o take it out of my case

So true, Imperial made some gorgeous purple pieces.

I’m bringing my Chatelaine water set for my seminar at HOACGA next week. This set took me ten years to complete! You’re all invited to come see it! Thanks for sharing Barb!

If you want beautiful purple; it has to be Imperial! It’s the best!

Is this a sale site and if so is this for sale? Thank you

Here’s a great piece of Millersburg glass. It is Vintage Hobnail pattern round sauce shape. It is quite difficult to find for several reasons. The first is that Millersburg isn’t terribly plentiful. Second, the sauces are not easy to find. And third, it is blue, which is a rare color for Millersburg glass. This one is especially pretty, as well. I guess we will just have to keep looking so we can find one like this.

I’ll stick closely to the theme. Millersburg Hanging Cherries sauce, 3in1 edge, also in Blue!

Such a lovely rarity!

I don’t have any blue but here is a lavender hanging cherries sauce
