The carnival glass of interest to most collectors is a iridized pressed glass that was produced from shortly after the turn of the century into the late 1920's. Starting in 1907, the Fenton Art Glass Company became the first company to produce this type of glass and became one of the leading producers.
This gorgeous green carnival fluted bowl is the "Captive Rose" pattern. A very decorative pattern found in bowls, bonbons, compotes and plates. The pattern was produced in marigold, cobalt blue, green, amethyst, amber and smoke. The interior is a combination of embroidery circles, scales, and diamond stitches. The roses are like finely stitched quilting. The exterior is plain, but radiates fantastic shades of dark blue, copper and rose. The bowl measures 8 3/4" across and 2 5/8" in height. There are no cracks or repairs; there is a small chip on the tip of one ruffle.
