Carnival punch bowl set
« on: June 26, 2006, 01:29:24 PM »
Any ideas what this might be would be much appreciated.  Just bought it this morning from a local fleamarket.  Nice orange and purple irridescence but quite a simple looking set.  The guy said "its really old, its wrapped in its original newspaper dated 1998".  I misheard him thinking and hoping he said 1898, but no such luck :lol: Had to bite my lip when he repeated it :lol:   Hopefully its a little older than that anyway :P

My guess is that its a repro.  Its shown with only 11 cups because one of the hooks is missing.

It might be Indiana "Harvest", though I can't see all of the pattern on this page.

Thanks Tigger :P   It looks very like their version, but I'm not too sure, because the Indiana Princess punch set (Harvest pattern) http://www.carnivalheaven.com/carnivalcatalogs/id52.htm has a scalloped edge whereas mine is straight.  However, the patterning around the base looks the same... :?

You are absolutely right Christine (Tigger too).  Thanks for the link.  Dencill had one for sale as well as Chuggy.  I wonder how Chuggy's went? They don't appear to be worth very much unfortunately and the weight makes it expensive to post.  I think I might have made a mistake buying it, but will list it just for the UK and see what happens. :? If it doesn't sell, then I'd better learn how to make punch :lol:

For some more on Indiana you may find this article I wrote (it's a few years old now) a little bit of interest.

Anne, I just had a thought. I had one of these in blue several years ago, It was in it's original box and still had the import label on it from the US and the date was sometime in the 1970's. Hope this helps.

Thanks Pat, that ties in with Glen's article in which it says Indiana Glass introduced Carnival to their range in 1971 :P    The 'Iridescent blue' one that you had was the first Carnival colour they used and my 'Iridescent gold' was added, along with two others, in 1974.  Don't you just wish you kept everything - especially with its original packaging :roll:
