This is glass that has been formed by being pressed into a mold while in a hot molten form. As it cools, it takes on the shape and detail of the mold. Once removed from the mold, and while still relatively hot, it is sprayed with metallic salts in liquid form which gives it the "oil-on-water" multicolor appearance.

Carnival Glass was first produced by Fenton in 1907 and continues to be made today. There were 5 or 6 major makers of it originally, but Fenton is the only one of the original group still in business.

There are about 2,000 different patterns in Carnival Glass, many of which are similar, leading to much confusion. This site details most of the known patterns but there are also many obscure patterns that I don't cover.

Colors can also be confusing. The most common is marigold, the orange color seen in the Ripple vase above. This color is always found on clear glass, but other colors are defined by the color of the glass, not the iridescent coating. The dark colored bowl above (Northwood's Grape and Cable) is purple or amethyst, the toothpick holder is green. The toothpick holder, by the way, is a contemporary piece--very few toothpick holders were made in Carnival during the original period of 1907 to 1930.
