First one, No. It's just pink glass – it must have iridescence to be carnival. Post it separately for an ID
The second is Imperial's Pillar Flute and was exported to the UK in large quantities see here

Deja vu  ::)

Actually I'd disagree with the idea that large quantities of Pillar Flute were imported into the UK. What I actually said back in 2006 was that masses of Imperial Carnival came to the UK. But I wouldn't have said that a huge amount of it was Pillar Flute. Probably more Imperial Grape, Windmill, Ripple and Fashion than anything.

By the way, the other item looks like Sowerby's Derby aka Pinwheel (service 2414) pattern. The same design was also made by Inwald and Hortensja. I'll try and write more when I get a bit more time.

Oops, sorry Glen. Pillared flute is very common round here compared with Ripple and Fashion though
