:hug: Thanks Glen.

I was a little confused as to whether it was carnival glass or not because of the flutes. But I did notice that the rim had been polished flat and I thought that this was not typical of carnival glass. Maybe I was  wrong about that idea?

Infact, now that I remember, I seem to recall owning a celeste blue 'vintage' (I think) with sharp edges.

Hi TC - a polished (ground) rim would be most unusual for Carnival, but I have seen some pieces that have it, such as the Jain tumblers from India.

A fire polished rim, on the other hand, is more normal for Carnival.

TC...you had a celeste blue Vintage? Had? Past tense? I hope you sold it for MUCHO cash!!

You mentioned the sharp edges - that it absolutely typical of celeste blue Carnival.

PS And thanks Lynne and TC too, for your kindness too.

I think I sold it for £25. That's what happens when you don't have the internet.  ::)  :-[

And of course, the lack of knowledge made me study even more.  ;D

And the Australian melon ribs have them too, Glen. But then, they're pretty unique.
