Help ID this Carnival Glass Comport
« on: May 28, 2006, 04:47:56 PM »
I have this large Carnival Glass Comport and would like some help to Id the marker, age etc, it stands 8 inches tall and 9 inches wide and weighs 1.7 kgs, base is quite clear and then turns to a very nice marigold , it is decorated on both sides , on the outside it looks like cherries , although it could be grapes as it looks like vines around top, and on the inside some type of flowers maybe marigolds or sunflowers , not sure if any connection between the 2 sides, I had looked for some time through David Doty's carnival glass website with no success
thanks roy

It's Fenton's Mikado. Classic old Carnival

Now you can go and look at Doty's.

You're welcome Roy -and yours is a beautiful example of the comport. Mikado is seldom found in the UK. We brought our marigold example all the way back from the USA some fifteen or so years ago. I am aware of blue and (rare) green ones that have been found in the UK, but they really are few and far between.
