It's "Octagon". It is a re-issue (the original ones were not trademarked). Is it Carnival? It looks marigold but I can't quite be certain. The IG trademark was used from 1951. (Is it marked IG?) Carnival was re-issued from the early 1960s on.

It is clear glass with gold over it, not Carnival.
Thanks for the info, Dar

Thanks for the clarification re. the color. The treatment you describe is what I believe was referred to as "Fired Gold on Crystal". Two sizes of your bowl: 10" was G5059; 8" was G5057.
