WELCOME TO THE ICGA WEBSITE.

There weren’t too many epergnes (pronounced e – perns) made in carnival glass, but there are a few of them. This is a Northwood Wishbone epergne in marigold. This consists of two parts, the lily vase that fits into a enclosed "hole" in the middle of the bowl part. Just think how hard it would be to make that lily fit into a hole exactly so that it wouldn’t wobble around.

Do you have an epergne that you would like to share in the comment sections below here on the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page? Let’s see if we can get photos of all the epergnes in all the colors that were made. Do you like that for a challenge? See MoreSee Less

A Small Epergne, Four Flower in Metal Holder

Love our Marigold Epergne!

This is my Northwood Wishbone epergne in green offered for sale at GlassGirlme on Etsy.

Is this an Epergne 🙂

I love it!

What were they originally made for? And how were they used? I’ve always wondered this.

Both of these pretty six or six and one-half inch plates are Fenton’s Pinecone. The one on the left is just called a small plate. Notice that it has both the sawtooth edge and also scalloped edge (that’s where the edge has the in and out look to it. The small plate on the right is called a saucer rather than a plate. It just has the sawtooth edge. The indentation in the center is a bit deeper to accommodate a small cup. In this case, it was a Wreath of Roses cup that sat in the center. We know this cup and saucer was a line item for Fenton because it was shown in early Fenton catalogs selling that way. There is also a larger version of the one on the left that is about 7 1/2. inches in diameter. Bowls are also available.
