(brought to life in marigold!)
ASHTRAY #112 - Pat'd. - 5 in.: This is very light marigold overlay.
Green #50 - 8 in. plate: Jenkins pattern FIELDCREST has been found in marigold.
Marigold #75 - 8 in. plate: Carnival pattern name is FLOWER BASKET. We have seen this one sell at a carnival glass auction somewhere in recent years.
Marigold #52 - 8 in. plate: Jenkins pattern PLAIN is obviously available in lovely color, although we have never seen one along the carnival trail.
Clear #53 - 8 in. plate: Jenkins pattern SEASIDE is known in marigold.
Clear #54 - 8 in. plate: Jenkins pattern TWIN DOLPHIN is known in marigold.
Marigold #313 - 7 3/8” vase: Carnival pattern name is GOLDEN FLOWERS. This all-over floral design is combined with some stippling. The floral design is raised on surface. This is of a lighter weight glass, believed to have been intended for use as a canning vessel. In the 1900 time frame, practicality was uppermost in the minds of buyers. Combined use of any commercial product purchased for consumption was made more attractive by thought of later use for the container! Those of us born of the Depression years recall that only too well. This vase can be seen in recent Edwards Encyclopedias-after 1996. These vases can be found having very light to very dark marigold iridescence.
Marigold #312 - 7 3/8” vase: Carnival pattern name is STORK. The opening is 3”, and it has a 2 12” base. The Stork is found only on one side of this vase, raised from the surface, rather than intaglio, with stippling over the rest of the surface. Mrs. Hartung comments: “Apparently this rather awkward vase was another attempt to open the housewife's purse, as it was used as a container for pickles, or so it seems. Like the Fisherman's Mug, the pattern covers only one side of the piece. Why bother with more when the back was going to be up against the grocer's shelves anyway? One wonders how many little girls picked wild flowers and begged this pickle jar from Momma to decorate a tea-party table?” These vases can be found to have very light to very heavy, dark marigold iridescence.

Marigold #311 - 7 3/8” vase: Carnival pattern name is TREE BARK. This is a vase with overall tree bark patterning, having no identifying mark on the bottom is known to have been made by Jenkins Glass Co. Most of these pieces are heavily iridized.
Marigold vase of about the same size: Carnival pattern name is TREE BARK. This is a vase with overall tree bark patterning, having the identifying mark on the bottom - J - for Jeannette Glass Company.
Kay Riley verifies having seen a FISH BOWL in marigold-made by Jenkins, and seen in their catalog of products.
An additional interesting note: Taken from the Aug. 20, 1932 edition of AMERICAN GLASS REVIEW~~Under the heading - NEW PATENTS - No. 1,870,363. Process of making fish bowls. Addison Jenkins, Kokomo, Ind., assignor to D.C. Jenkins Glass Co., Kokomo, Ind., a corporation. Filed December 20, 1930. The process of making a glass vessel consisting in first forming a parison of glass, and while in a semi-molten state dropping into the interior of the bottom thereof a gob of molten glass having a different color and thereafter forming the parison into final shape, during which formation the gob spreads and fuses with the glass forming the bottom thereof.
We present these patterns for your “memory bank”. When all else fails, perhaps one of these can be located with a price tag which won't “break the bank”, but rather answer the need for a “new fix”! All things beautiful need NOT be terribly expensive. Certainly any of these patterns should be considered RARE, if that is a criteria for you.
