Information about Carnival Glass


Carnival Glass Colours

Members attending the Society's 2008 AGM were treated to a wonderful presentation on Carnival Glass colours.   Click this link to be amazed at the array of colours featured in an article on the Carnival Glass Worldwide website.

Dan Ruth has a video on You Tube of many of the colours showing many items with the light reflected off the iridescence and with the light shown through them to see the true colour. You can see it in full screen and with sound. Click here to see the video.

Carnival Glass Vases

At the AGM convention in 2009, the Carnival Glass Society members were treated to  a very enlightening presentation on carnival glass vases by Glen and Steve Thistlewood. Many members contributed items of glass for discussion including some rare colours. Click here to view.
