Hi Lynn, it's a Bagley pattern called Carnival (it's not Carnival glass though, which is something else of course.) The registration was done in November 1946. There is a whole range of tableware in the Carnival pattern and the celery was Carnival 3141. All info from "Bagley Glass" by Angela Bowey and Derek & Betty Parsons.
