Just trying to get as many search criteria in a single headline :lol:

I think I know it is Fenton
I can see it glows under UV
It looks like Marigold
Is there a special name for this combination? And approximately how new is it?

It's known as vaseline Carnival Glass.

The piece is known as Open Edge Basketweave or Basketweave Open Edge - and yes, as you say Ivo, it is a Fenton piece. I would say it is an early piece of Classic Carnival. The pattern has been re-issued by Fenton but it would have the Fenton trademark on it, if it was new - and I don't believe they have re-issued it in that colour.

Nice piece, Ivo.

You can read a bit more about the colour (Vaseline Carnival) here.

2 euros.  Wow. Bargain of the year, Ivo. You really did well - perhaps it's a gift secretly organised by Father Christmas, to thank you for being such a wonderful glass educator / helper / adviser.

Great piece, Ivo.  I love it!

Glen gave you some great information from a carnival glass perspective.  I would like to provide some from a Fenton collectors perspective.

As Glen said the pattern is called Basket Weave with Open Edge  #1092 also known as Fenton's Basket.  It was made from approximately 1911-1925.  Fenton calls their vaseline color Topaz. Basket Weave in topaz carnival has a rarity ranking of 5.
