Carnival glass - Imperial rococo - vaseline or smoke?

Hi Glen, yes I saw your article, and part of the problem is that IN THE FLESH the glow is like that at the bottom of your little bowl in the article.

However, if my photo is anything to go by, that would have been much much brighter in the flesh than on the photo.

Doesn't matter, I just wanted to know how to describe it, and now I know.

Thank you very much!

That's a vivid vaseline glow on the lower part of the Carnival bowl shown in the photo (at the end of the article). It's a real lime green humdinger of a glow.

And yes, the best way to describe the Rococo piece (I'd call it a candy dish, btw - as it doesn't fit the description of a "nut bowl" for me) is smoke.
