Cased iridescent vase...any ideas?
« on: April 30, 2006, 12:58:53 PM »
Hi all,

I found this today and, liking Carnival glass of course, couldn't resist.

The base is polished flat.

Hi Della
Please see Glen's excellent topic
Is it Carnival or is it Iridised Art Glass?

Hi Peter,
I did read Glens article and from what I read, came to the conclusion that this vase probably isn't Carnival glass as it doesn't fit the criteria given. I haven't actually seen a piece of cased iridized glass, until today :oops:
Or am I way off base? :cry: .
