Very short story. My 90 year old great-grandmother passed away a couple of months ago. When I had the opportunity to pick something of hers to keep, I chose a glass bowl that I thought was pretty and very different from anything I had. I figured I could put it on my dining room table to remember my granny. This past weekend, we had her estate sale and I was able to talk to my grandmother more about the items she had and she mentioned the carnival glass. I had never heard of carnival glass before, so I came home and looked up information. I'm honestly a little overwhelmed. The bowl I have looks very similar to so many other pieces I see online, but it's MUCH more plain. That's leading me to believe it's nothing more than just a pretty bowl. There are no markings on it that could give me any indication of what it might be (unless I'm an idiot and completely missing it). I had it on my table with fruit in it, but I've since moved it on the off chance it is something more. The pressure that my kids might break it is too much for me to handle until I find out more.
Here's a picture. I know nothing about the bowl. I don't know when she got it, where it came from. All I can tell you is that my granny has lived in NC her entire life, so I have to assume the bowl came from around here.
