Afterglow Series - Part 2
DIAMOND AFTERGLOW - Part 2
BEADED BASKET in Lime Green - Afterglow
BEADED BASKET: Aqua and Pink baskets and also the lime green baskets are no doubt iridized examples of the Afterglow line, which dates from 1928- 1929, into the early 1930s.
Pink Afterglow WINDFLOWER 9 in.Bowl.
Sold by Ayers Auction Service for $60.
June 2005 Lincoln Land Carnival Glass Convention.
WINDFLOWER: Rarely found in other than marigold examples, whether it be bowl, plate, or single handled nappy, there is at least one bowl known in marigold overlay to vaseline base glass.
FLORAL & WHEAT Exterior of PUZZLE
footed Bonbon in Pink Afterglow.
FLORAL and WHEAT Exterior /PUZZLE: Cerulean or celeste blue has been reported in this footed bonbon, and certainly that would be rare enough as a “find”, but equally rare are the very few known examples in basic pink afterglow.
PONY Bowl in Ice Green - or - Afterglow - that is the question.
PONY: Purported to have been one of the last iridescent production patterns from Diamond. This specimen in green is a “gem”!
SEAGULL: Although this pattern may not be included in the annals of carnival glass per se', there can be no doubt that it has been cast aside in grave error, for with the advent of this iridized pink Afterglow example, it is a confirmed participant within the circle of carnival glass. The majority of the green Seagull bowls we have seen are not iridized.
STORK in RUSHES Pitcher & Tumbler: Notice that both the Beaded and the Lattice Band versions of this pattern are represented in lime green base glass. Not mentioned in most circles as being part of the Afterglow line, these examples are proof enough.
TRIPLETS: These rather scarce bowls with the pattern on the exterior surface were apparently produced through the conventional carnival glass era and briefly into the latter years of Afterglow treatment. Though somewhat weak, the iridescence is certainly visible.
TARGET: We have owned this vase for many years, at varying times calling it lime green opalescent, vaseline opalescent, and now we include it in this segment with good reason as well. It GLOWS! Upon discovering the ad from Baltimore Bargain House to include this pattern in the Afterglow series, we suspect we have finally arrived at the proper conclusion. According to that old cliché': “It's ours; we can call it whatever we like!” The Afterglow line claims it. What do you think?
