IRIS and HERRINGBONE Pattern
DEMITASSE CUPS and SAUCERS: We were quite surprised to discover this set while listing a private collection of carnival glass to be sold by Seeck Auctions in conjunction with a Northern California Club Auction in the late `80s. We lived in San Diego at the time a couple who were members of our Club there, decided to sell their collection. This is the only set to have surfaced at auction during our many years with the Glass. They really are a privilege to behold!
The tiny cups are 2 ¼” high with a top opening of 2 ½”. The base is 1 5/8” in diameter. The colors are bright and bold, offering a departure from the usual marigold or crystal found on examples in this pattern.
There is a marigold; but the blue, lavender, and rose color examples are spectacular! RARE is appropriately applied to this set. As nearly as can be determined, with the set of four originally purchased together, these were marketed in that fashion.
The Rose color cup/saucer were in an Oregon collection for a time before selling at auction in 2002 for $350. The Lavender set went to Texas, and was sold in March 2008, for the same amount, $350; when Seeck Auctions sold the collection of Eleanor Hamilton.
The late John Britt purchased the marigold and blue sets, at the time of the CA auction, selling one set to a prominent Texas couple, who may still own it.
The following shapes are known in marigold. If there are other known colors within the following listed shapes of this Iris and Herringbone pattern, we would most appreciate hearing about them.

9” PLATE, SHERBET, WATERSET, CORDIAL, 11 ½” Ruffled BOWL,

TUMBLER: Should any of our viewers know of more examples in this pattern, we would appreciate hearing from you.
