You are more likely to find and old one in the UK that the repros. It's probably sat in a cupboard for a 100 years

well, that clinches it  ............      I'll advertise it as being c. 1915 - in pristine nick - been in Granny's cupboard for a century - and provenanced by Lustrousstone  -  any advance on one hundred dollars. ;) ;)                   Not a bad return on two quid. ;D

and you can point to the evidence from the Carnival Glass site I linked to which says that contemporary examples are marked and yours is not marked :)

thanks m  -  v. much appreciate the advice, but I was only joking about selling  -  have to say I'm lazy and it's likely that after this one has sat on the bookcase for a month or so it will simply go back to the charity shop - at my age I'm trying to cultivate a philosophy of not having too many possessions. ;D

Unfortunately, if you weren't to lazy to sell, they aren't worth much. Loads of them were shipped to the UK LOL

well, yes, that does just about sum up the sort of luck I have  -  marigold seems to be the most common colour too, with the greens and blues less so.            When I first took an interest in glass - more years ago than I care to remember - carnival was popular and some of the pieces made big money, but prices seem to have bottomed a long time back now, though perhaps they still command some money on the other side of the pond.                             A very big thanks for sending me 'lots of love'  ;) ;) ;)
