No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Carnival? New? ID = Jeanette "Floragold" aka "Louisa".

Well Glen,
This came today. Seeing as my knowledge or Carnival is virtually nil. Your opionion, as always, would be greatly welcomed.
This is definitely iridescent, but is it classed as Carnival?
As for age, it looks like it came out of the factory yesterday!
I am not even sure what it should be, it is too big for a butter dish.....biscuits maybe?

Thank you.......a million times over.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Hi Della - it's Jeanette's "Floragold" aka "Louisa". Made in the 1950s. I think what you have there is a covered candy dish.

Hope this helps.

Yes Glen, of course it helps. :D  Any information on a piece is always wonderful. I think daughter no. 2 will probably claim this one.....she is called Louise.
Daughter no. 3 will make good use of it until her sister decides to leave the army.  :roll:

Oh, and of course, another BIG thank you.

Oh that's perfect - she's called Louise! That's wonderful.

I have a set of tumblers in this pattern which I really enjoy. The charm of them is that I don't feel guilty about using them (hey, imagine using a Frolicking Bears tumbler that cost $15,000). And that just ads to the pleasure of the glass for me.
