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

Pattern is named Carnival made from 1946 to 1975. Source Bagley Glass by Angela Bowey, Derek and Betty Parsons

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.
