Do you have a piece of purple carnival glass that you think is especially pretty? Would you share it by putting it in the comment section here beneath our ICGA Facebook page, please? We would really enjoy being flooded with beautiful glass.
This is a Dugan Garden Path large bowl in purple. I think it is quite pretty myself. It was made in the early 1900’s. … See MoreSee Less

One of Imperial’s most popular patterns was their Homestead plate. These plates can be marked with a NuArt signature on the lower right edge. Some of the plates are unmarked. The NuArt signature adds value to the plates, but the unmarked are just as pretty as the marked ones.
These have been reproduced, so you need to check the back. If you don’t see ribs on the back, it is a more recent piece. If you don’t mind buying newer glass, the more recent ones are usually quite affordable and very pretty. .
Please share your Homestead plates, or any Imperial Glass plate, in our comment section under this posting on the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page. We love to see pretty glass. … See MoreSee Less

The Stag and Holly pattern has always been popular among carnival glass collectors. This is a giant rose bowl that was shaped from the mold used to create the large ball footed ruffled and ice cream shaped bowls. When the glass was still malleable, a finisher brought the sides up and then turned those sides in at the top to make the rose bowl shape. As you can imagine, there aren’t a great many of this shape in Stag and Holly. Plates are also quite difficult to find. This one is marigold, as you can see. It was made by the Fenton Art Glass Company in the early 1900’s.
Do you have a rose bowl shape in any pattern that you would like to share? Please add it in the comment section below our post on the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page. We would love to see your pretty pieces. … See MoreSee Less
