To celebrate the centennial of Carnival glass, we have rediscovered and improved much of the original chemistry and techniques for iridizing glass. We salute the past and mark our place in the present with a panoply of Carnival glass colors in a wide variety of shapes contemporary. These pieces are surely the heirlooms of the future.

1982 Sculptured Ice Optics Amethyst Vase
Bid Now (eBay)
This stately amethyst vase (9-1/2" tall) was in our Sculptured Ice Optics grouping in 1982. These pieces were difficult to produce, and the group was out of the Fenton line within a year. One seldom sees these in the marketplace today.
Blue Satin Oval Picture Frame
Bid Now (eBay)
This iridized Blue Satin oval picture frame (4-1/2" tall for an oval picture that's 2-1/4" by 3") was handpainted by Linda Everson. Linda recently retired from Fenton, after a long career as a very talented decorator and designer.
1964 Vasa Murrhina or "Spangle" Double-Crimped Bowl
Bid Now (eBay)
Here's an experimental Vasa Murrhina or "spangle" double-crimped bowl (6-3/4" dia.) The treatment is amber overlay (milk glass interior), and flecks of mica are trapped perfectly between the layers of glass. This piece was made on February 21, 1964, as the still-intact production label indicates.
Multi-Color Pastel Slag Hobnail Ashtray
Bid Now (eBay)
This is a wonderful "slag" ashtray (5" square) in our Hobnail pattern ... but we're not sure what to call the color! There are swirls of cobalt blue, pink, and green within the milk glass, so the effect is "multi-color pastel slag"!
