Here is an unusual shape for carnival glass – a four section relish dish. It is the Two Fruits pattern made by the Fenton Art Glass Company early in the 1900’s. This has a slight amethyst tint to the glass color with a marigold iridescence. Of course a piece of carnival glass is identified by the base color of the glass. Look through the collar base or the handles to see the true color of the glass. The iridescence, that rainbow effect, is applied afterwards to make that beautiful look to the piece. … See MoreSee Less
Come one, come all…to our annual convention in Shipshewana, Indiana, July 13 – 16. Our convention tries to have a yearly display room featuring a different subject each year. This year we are having chop plates displayed. The members volunteer a list of their chop plates to the chairman, and he sends back a list of plates for you to bring. This beautiful Four Flowers smooth edge plate might be featured in the display room. This pattern was made by the Dugan Glass Company early in the 1900’s.
If you have this pattern or any other pattern that you would like to provide in plates ten inches or larger, Carl Booker would love to have you send a list. Respond and I will private message you the essential info. … See MoreSee Less

As I understand it, there were a couple of cherry trees outside the window of John Fenton’s (the founder of Millersburg) office, and he was inspired by those trees to make the Cherries pattern for his company. … See MoreSee Less
