Carnival glass Identification please
« on: February 01, 2015, 03:47:24 PM »
Hi, I picked up this green carnival glass bowl and was wondering if anyone knew who made it? It has a nice polished base so I think it has some age.

Many thanks, Stuart.

This is the Four Flowers Variant. Despite my constant research over the years, as yet no maker is confirmed. I do, however, feel it may possibly be English (and is almost certainly European). More to read about it here:
