Halloween is coming soon, so this Halloween marmalade jar is just the thing to share for the season. I think it was named Halloween because of its "orange" color with the black enamel trim around the top. Most pieces have a crackle type pattern as well. There are quite a multitude of shapes, but this pattern does have to be marigold with the black trim.

Just in time for Halloween its this Dragon’s Tongue bowl in marigold. This was a product of the Fenton Art Glass Company. This could be an inspiration for a costume for Halloween. Just don’t take the bowl along since it is a rather scarce bowl. Keep it safe at home.
Do you have any pieces of carnival glass that would inspire a costume for Halloween? If so, please share them in the comment section below the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page. Or share something you enjoy. … See MoreSee Less
Not reminiscent of Halloween but one of my favorite colors. Dugan Windflower in PINK.

In my previous post about the Floral and Optic rose bowl, I was explaining that it could be considered both carnival glass and stretch glass. I show here the edges of two different pieces to show the stretch effect. As I understand when stretch glass was made, there was an extra step done to produce the stretchy edge. I believe it had to be reheated an extra time.
The red Wide Panel piece shows the stretch edge – kind of like an onion skin effect. The blue Stag and Holly shows no evidence of the stretch effect.
Please share your examples of stretch and carnival glass. They are fun to see. … See MoreSee Less
Alicia Kinabrew, I hope this helps you with your question about the stretch glass effect.
Sometimes there was an overlap…here is great example of that.
Ooooo! I see now! I get it. Thanks guys. I love learning new things. 🤗❤️🤗
