BAGLEY - Please ID
« on: August 14, 2010, 08:25:27 PM »
Hello,
I recently broke one of a pair of favorite frosted green vases, about 6" tall.
The style is very much like the Bagley vases in the Carnival pattern I've seen online, but the only ones I see are in vaseline glass, not frosted.
Has anyone here ever seen this vase in green frosted? (My photo was taken against a bright window making it look less green in the center, but the vase appears as all green in normal light, a similar color to the Bagley Grantham vase in frosted green.
I hope that looking for Bagely is the right direction.
Would appreciate any information about this.
Thanks very much.
Mara

I must say I don't remember seeing a frosted one. Carnival is usually unfrosted, though the bowls sometimes come painted.

Me neither Christine. Angela Bowey says Carnival 3141 pattern is a celery vase, and was the only celery Bagley made in colours. I wonder if the frosted ones were for a specific customer?

Thanks for your replies.
I've looked and looked and now I can see why i may never find one in frosted green.
Hope something turns up. Would love to have another.
I appreciate your help!
Best,
Mara

By the way, I live in New York but bought my vase in a small shop in the UK (in Barnes) about ten years ago.
So I know that it's British!

Yes, of couse:-) But mine looks almost exactly like the Bagley vase so I've been looking for similar designs.

The Bagley one has 18 ribs and is 6.5 inches. I think we agree yours is Bagley but we've never seen Carnival frosted.

Thanks Christine. Yes, 18 ribs and 6.5 inches, exactly. I hope to get lucky and find another.
