Stretching carnival glass collecting…some of us have pieces of glass that can be considered carnival glass as well as stretch glass. This is a Floral and Optic rose bowl in teal/aqua. It is considered carnival glass because it has a pattern. It has the stretch glass finish so it is also considered stretch glass. This was made by the Imperial Glass Company – probably in the late 19teens or in the 1920’s. It is not marked.

Although this is "just a marigold Orange Tree plate" doesn’t mean that it is not special. Look at the iridescence on this piece. If it isn’t pumpkin marigold, it is close. Always choose pieces that give you pleasure in the color and iridescence.

This was Fenton Art Glass Company’s most prolific pattern, so there are many shapes and colors available.

Barb, I would take “just a Marigold Orange Tree Plate” that looks like this any time. LOL

Jon Galvin the plate on the left what color would you call it? I absolutely love the lighter colors!
