One of the fun things about attending the convention is seeing a display of carnival glass that someone has set up in his or her room display. This display features Jester’s Cap vases in various colors. To qualify to be this shape, the front side needs to be turned down and the back side is turned up with a little point pulled up. If the point isn’t there, it would be a Jack-in-the-Pulpit shape. Either are desirable, but the Jester’s Cap vase is much harder to find. Would you like to choose your favorite? Put your answer in the comments section. Sorry I can’t give them to you. They belong to another collector couple, and I think they might want to keep them!
Come to our convention in July to see many room displays. … See MoreSee Less

If you have the space for punch sets, then this would be one that would be great to display. It is Multi Fruits and Flowers, which was a product of the Millersburg Glass Company. This one is green with fantastic iridescence. It has what collectors call the tulip top. Another shape is the flared bowl. There were basically three colors made in either style – marigold, amethyst, and green in this pattern. If you find one that has blue base glass color, then you want to buy it and run since it is very rare. This beautiful green set sold at the ICGA convention last year. You just never know what fun and glass you will find at our convention. Join us in July in Indianapolis, IN. … See MoreSee Less
I have a set in this same glass color. It is stored in a box because I lack space to display it. I like knowing it’s there in case I ever throw another shower!
I have the amethyst set. I have the stand in a cupboard. Where I have it it’s too tall to set it all up.

Many of us have a Horse Medallion piece of carnival glass – maybe in marigold, blue, green, or one of the other colors, but not many of us have a celeste blue Horse Medallion bowl like the one in the photo. Horse Medallion was a pattern made by the Fenton Art Glass Company. We presume it was to make a likeness of the old photo Pharoah’s Horses. This has the onion skin effect of stretch glass around the edges of the bowl. It was reheated to produce this effect after it was sprayed with the chemicals that make the iridescence. … See MoreSee Less
My favorite! Thanks for this one, Barb!
Just beautiful! There will be a Vasoline JIP HORSE MEDALLION PIECE formerly of the Fenton Museum in the International Auction come July…….take the time to have a peek, you will be glad you did.
