Knobbly rims

No NO Glen this confusion is my fault.
My american friend ( a glass collector and dealer of 10+years) initially told me that it could not be American Carnival because of the rim.
I omitted to mention this in my initial post.
Adam, when you drew attention to the rim and said it was fire polished I thought thats all there was to it.
However, having questionned Terry in Iowa again about it, apparently its not the fact that it's fire polished but that its irregular/ knobbly / not smooth. This style of rim is not seen in American Carnival he tells me.
My apologies for leaping to conclusions !
(PS I still think its Bohemian - Depression Era ? probably - Carnival ? still open)( Glen surely there were other Bohemian makers of Carnival apart from Inwald ?)

Yes, there was another Bohemian (Czech) maker of Carnival. My  discovery (about five or six years ago) that Josef Rindskopf Sons made a large amount of Carnival, was quite a shock to many collectors.

But I'm sure you can read about it on other websites.

My 2d worth

Hi everyone.

Here's my 2d worth.   Looking at the heavyweights who have contributed, I doubt whether it is European, Australasian or Canada/USA.   There is one huge chunk of world left over.   Central & South America, Africa, and Asia from India and China to Japan, SE Asia, Malaysia and Indonesia.   On a world map, countries like Vietnam look quite small, dwarfed by the immensity of China.   Neverthess Vietnam is a big country with many diverse modern industries.

It certainly doesn't look like anything I have ever seen before.

Well, I don't know who made this piece - but I can add to my last point above (where I said that Josef Rindskopf Sons made Carnival Glass - the context being that they were the second known Czech glassmaker to produce Carnival). Now we know that Wilhelm Kralik Sons also made some.

Don't have an answer but I was struck by the resemblence of the finish on Pete's piece to mine http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,16539.0.html
