   When out today i bought the piece's of carnival glass all different but i got bargin because of buying the 3, the first little piece is a bowl with crimped edge marigold i think is the colour, smooth inside with a tiny bit of frosting is how i would explain it, the under side is different being ribbed.

I was wondering if it was fenton or sowerby, as you may know i am very new to glass collecting so am in the dark with this and the other 2 piece's bought, have taken a look on but could not find this so hoping to find out about it here, thank you.

Should i add the 2 other piece's to this post ?

Neither. Here is a good place to look

I'll give you a hint later but the inside pattern is the one you're looking for

Scroll Embossed interior / File exterior. Imperial USA.

Sowerby plagiarised the Scroll Embossed pattern.
