JUICE TUMBLER: With distinct pleasure, we show what is described as the third example known in the small Juice Tumbler. Bob Preseau contacted us in early Feb. 2006 saying he had purchased this rare specimen recently, while attending an upstate New York auction. This tiny tumbler is 4 7/8 tall, 2 ½ wide across the top, with a base of 2 ¼. Inside depth is 2 3/8.

Bob also owns one of the reproductions which is a bit taller than the vintage examples. The inside depth is 2 ½ and displays the (IG) inside bottom.
While marigold is the dominant color in this pattern, there are exceptions. Clambroth is known in the stemmed compote, the wine decanter is found in amethyst, and a rose bowl can be found in purple, helios, amber and ice green, with all those colors being extremely rare.

CELERY HOLDER -Two-handled:  2 7/8 diameter x 5 3/8 tall, measuring 6 ¾ across handles. This is a  scarce shape in marigold, with few of them appearing at carnival glass auctions.

ROUND TWO-HANDLED BOWL: Rather than the dome type foot, this piece has a more conventional collar base.

OVAL TWO-HANDLED RELISH - Footed: One of the more easily found shapes in this best selling pattern by Imperial. Carnival production of this primarily marigold design extended into 1929. Imperial catalogs list it as their #612.

Imperial Catalog 104A Ad: Portrays the Oval Relish, which is only one of at least 20 shapes known to have been produced in carnival glass. The non-iridized crystal production was more extensive in shapes offered.

ROUND Bowl: This is the shape as it came from the mould, without flaring, ruffling or alteration of shape. Not difficult to locate one of these.

SQUARE Bowl:  From the original 7 round shape, with sides pulled into a square,  it extends to 8 ½. These are seen fairly often.

OPEN SUGAR: Imperial Catalogs display a full table set made in crystal, but when iridizing took place, the spooner became an open sugar to go with the creamer. Both creamer and sugar are not too difficult to locate.

NUT BOWL:  This deep and beautifully flared bowl is not seen often.

Stemmed COMPOTE:  Our example is in marigold, but these are available in clambroth, if you are a more discerning collector, willing to search.

WINE DECANTER:  This wine set is underrated and actually quite scarce in marigold. To find an example in amethyst is a real delight. Does anyone have a spare amethyst stemmed wine to go with?      

Dean & Diane Fry - 2/06
God claims by grace those who have no claim to grace.
 There is a satanically organized system which hates and opposes all that is godly (John 15:18-23).
The unsaved follow the ruler of the kingdom of the air, that is Satan.
The whole world is under control of the evil one (1 John 5:19),
who is also called the god of this age (2 Corinthians 4:4),
but Satan's judgement in the future is sure (Rev. 20:10).
