Carnival Glass Price Guide

By

Have you ever wondered why it's called carnival glass? Well, it was really given away at carnivals back in the early 1900s. This association wasn't welcomed by all, and some proper ladies didn't want this glass in their homes. It's one of those collecting genres that people generally love or hate all these years later.

Making carnival glass employed a combination of chemicals that were applied to pressed glass prior to its firing. The resulting swirly sheen that sometimes looks like an oil slick was much less expensive to produce when compared to other iridescent art glass popular at the time, such as Tiffany and Steuben.
