What is Carnival Glass?
In 1907, Fenton introduced a new type of glass called at the time Iridill, now known as carnival glass. It was a more affordable glass that resembled expensive art glass (like Tiffany, Steuben and Loetz) produced at the time. Even if most of it was produced in America, it was also produced around the world by several companies. By the 1950’s, carnival glass was out of fashion. In the 1970’s, it was making its way back, especially with collectors. Today’s collectors are mainly interested in antique carnival glass, some pieces reaching astonishing prices, even in the 6 figures. The most common color is marigold, an orange color. Carnival glass comes in several shapes including table sets, pitcher sets, punch bowls, vases, bowls, plates, etc. Explore this site to see several examples.

Basically, carnival glass is pressed glass with an iridescence finish (oily shine). This finish was obtained by pulverizing metallic salts on the glass while it was still hot and the glass was fired a second time. Back then, quality control was not an issue. Today's collectors are really distinguishing pieces based on the quality of iridescence which influences prices for a same piece, in some cases, more than 10 times.
