Carnival glass mystery bowl
« on: June 21, 2006, 08:23:22 AM »
Any ideas as to which company this belongs to?

It doesn't look very old, I think it's European? There's a raised number "2" moulded into the base. The base rim is not polished.

The usual marigold carnival colour. 15 inches in length and 5 inches wide at the top rim.

Thanks.  :D

This is the Gondola fruit bowl (or planter) made by the American company Jeannette. It's circa the 1950s - 1960s.

Super piece - distinctive, massive and very showy.

Are those the ones that come in the colourful coated surfaces like fake amberina and bluerina? (...and how on earth do you spell bluerina?)

Yes, Jeannette had some interesting effects in their repertoire. Same make as the much talked about "Aztec Rose" (various colorways are noted in the text here).

:lol: Lynne - glad I could help  :lol:

I wrote about the Jeannette Aztec Rose piece as it was appearing frequently (mistakenly) on eBay as a Brockwitz piece.

Is yours marigold or do you have one of the other colours?

Hi Glen,  It has a bright red coating at the base sprayed over an amber base glass, not irridised at all.  I thought it was amberina when I first looked at it, then got it home and noticed a couple of little scratches in the red showed through to the amber.   So I took it out of the lot, thought it was probably rubbish, and just put it on the side until I could find out a bit more!

I'll take a pic later, and pop it on here.

Thank you Glen. Gondola, how romantic.  :D

Oh, here's another one, hope you don't mind...

... I bought it today for 50p. Not much going on with the pattern but - like the Gondola - it has a gorgeous iridescence to it.

This one has lots of bubbles in it so I think it's older?

Thanks again.

Hi TC - it's "Lustre and Clear" - thought to be Imperial Glass.

Not bad for 50p  :lol:
