OHIO STAR Compote: Few of the shapes made in crystal are found in carnival glass. The tall compote found in marigold has the clear stem. There is also a shorter, smaller compote known in marigold, along with whimsey-like small relish trays in marigold. Vases are the dominant shape and can be found in amethyst, green or marigold………rarely offered for sale. At least a couple of pairs of swung green vases are known, along with a frosty white and an aqua opalescent example.

FLOWERING VINE Compote, Marigold.

FLOWERING VINE Compote:  Measures 9” tall, with 6 ¾” bowl diameter. One example is known in green and a couple in amethyst, (One selling for $9500. in 1994.) Marie McGee mentions no marigold compote, so presumably this marigold example has surfaced since she wrote Millersburg’s Carnival Glass book in 1995.

FLUTE-WIDE PANEL-UNPATTERNED Compote: By any other name, it should be noted that this is the basic tall Rosalind compote shape/mold. The base and stem are identical and there are nine flutes which extend from the bowl, down the stem and onto the foot. This stands 9” tall.

ROSALIND Compote (tall):  9” in height; we show the example having clear stem. The only other marigold tall compote known in this pattern has a marigold stem/foot. (You may click here to have a look at that compote.) There is an amethyst example in this pattern having a round bowl (referred to as a jelly compote.) There is also a blue compote in this pattern. So, we conclude that Flowering Vine, the Flute and these tall Rosalind compotes all have the basic 9 panel bowl, the same stem and foot. The only alterations are displayed in the plunger mold design.

PRIMROSE:  pattern is found often in 10” collar-base bowls of either amethyst, green or marigold, usually having good color and iridescence. The Fine Cut Heart exterior compliments the pattern quite nicely. A banana boat shaped vaseline example having a tightly crimped edge is known. Three blue bowls have been confirmed and another reported. These each have different edge treatments: six ruffled, three and one, and ice cream shape.

ROSALIND Bowls: 10”-10 ½” six-ruffled bowls or those with a CRE are the usual bowls seen in this pattern. The larger ice cream bowl is quite rare, and those measuring 8 ¼”-9” are rarely seen. This is the size which was flattened for the rare 9” plates. (Please note that many times what is referred to as “plate” in Millersburg patterns, cannot truly be defined as such, since they lack a flat edge around the entire piece. The four marigold and four amethyst Peacock and Urn chop plates can be called “plates”…….NO problem there!)

sold for $525. Seeck Auctions - 3-07.

ROSALIND Variant Compote (small): This is the version which is so often mistaken for Peacocktail by Fenton. It’s height is 5 ½”. This Rosalind Vt. pattern offers the separation between the “peacocktails”, which somewhat resembles a dual row of tiny “feathers”. These are known in amethyst and green. We have not seen a marigold example, although it may exist.

Dean and Diane Fry - 11 - 2010

Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”
for we are members of one another.
“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.
Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good,
That he may have something to give him who has need.
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification,
That it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
(Ephesians 4:25-5:1)

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. ~~~~ ( Ephesians 5)
