Floral Carnival dish. ID please.

Hi All,

Does anyone know who made this diamond shaped dish and what the pattern is called? The colours are amazing, lots of purples and blues, but I can't capture them today as the weather is just not suitable. The base glass is amber.

 :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

As always, thank you :)
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Della, it's an Indiana Glass (PA, USA) piece - made circa the 1970s when they began to do their Carnival lines. I believe the pattern is known as Pineapple and Floral. The colour is their Iridised Gold and it really is an astonishingly lovely, vibrant effect, showing lots of violet and purple.

As always, Glen, a very BIG thank you.  :D
I really thought that this one was American, but your knowledge never ceases to amaze me. I have looked at nearly all of the floral patterns that I could find, and still didn't find it!  :?
