Please make note that our International Carnival Glass Association Convention will take place July 12 – 15, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel in St. Louis (Bridgeton), MO. We will have a display room that features mugs and loving cups, with a seminar on these items by Roger Dunham, a seminar by Roger Macauley, and a banquet presentation by Cale Wilcox. Besides all that, you will be able to visit many rooms that will have carnival glass for sale and see the room displays. To culminate our convention, Seeck Auctions will be auctioning a select portion of the Jane and late Carlton Tarkington’s collection. There will be some really fine articles that you will have a chance to take home with you.
The mugs you see here are an amethyst Singing Birds by Northwood and a marigold Fisherman’s Mug by Dugan. They might be on display in our display room.
The Millersburg Glass Company of the early 1900’s made a lot of very collectible glass. This marigold Diamonds small water pitcher is one of their patterns. While it is a simple pattern it holds a type of elegance about it. This pattern, to my knowledge, has only been made in the pitcher and tumbler, a very rare punch bowl and base in green and marigold (one each in each of these colors) and one or two amethyst punch bowl and base known, A marigold whimsey spittoon (at this time, only one or two are known) made from a tumbler. To my knowledge, there are no Diamonds punch cups known. … See MoreSee Less
Sometimes you may have a collection of something in just one pattern. That is the case with these Ripple vases made by the Imperial Glass Company in the early 1900’s. As you see, there is a variety of colors and sizes. The size is determined by the diameter of the base, not the height of the vase. These vases that are pictured are the original vases, but some might have been reproduced in the 1960’s or 70’s. Those should be marked with an I though a G. This should be on the bottom of the base or on the inside bottom of the vase. I don’t believe they were reproduced in as many colors. … See MoreSee Less
