2007 Is Over . . . Finally! by Brian Pitman We have come to the end of another year, and the promise of a better new year rings especially true this year. I won’t mince words: 2007 was just a bad year, at least for me. Too many personal losses in one year was just the beginning. On top of that, work was extra crazy this year (why can’t I be rich and not have to work? Why does Paris Hilton have that over me??) The year in carnival glass, though, was pretty darn good. Lots of auctions, lots of conventions, lots of glass for sale on eBay: everything ran according to schedule this year. But even so, maybe there seemed to be a sense of change. Bill Richard Sr. sold his last auction (and boy will he be missed.) Harold (George) Cox wasn’t at the ICGA convention this year to keep me honest because he was too busy having lunch with Arlene and Jesus. The Pacific Northwest convention lost, and then found, its auction. For awhile there, they were planning on having a convention without an auction (and honestly, part of me was hoping that it would be wildly successful!) Fenton announced they were closing forever, but (as of my writing this article) they are still around, with rumors that they may just pull it out. On top of that, the potential threat of China getting their hands on the original molds in the Fenton inven-

tory scared the heck out of a lot of people (including me.) Nightmares of vintage-appearing carnival glass filling the shelves of your neighborhood Wal-Mart kept many people awake, wondering if they were truly in all of this for the altruism and appreciation of artistry, or if the elimination of value on their collections would be the death knell of collecting as we know it. Unfortunately, until the Fenton situation is worked out, that threat may remain. But really, there are ways we can all help prevent that carnival apocalypse. Through chance (or luck, if you believe in luck), I found myself with the opportunity to purchase the Christmas Compote mold. I jumped, and now I can sleep at night knowing that I won’t see $30 purple Compotes in stocking stuffers across the world… Anyway, I digress; 2007 was what it was. I personally didn’t enjoy the year very much, and I am very enthusiastic about kicking that old man out the door in the hopes that the baby that shows up will bring a FABULOUS year for all of us. I can tell you that ICGA is doing a much better job financially. The 2007 convention didn’t have quite the attendance that I wanted, but we still made a little bit of money. The 2008 convention, however, looks to be phenomenal, with the amazing

Rainbow display room and seven seminars from it. On top of that, we have a SUPER hotel for the event (found for us by Roger and Cathy Dunham), one which is family friendly and very close to lots of restaurants and shops for those who want to get out and enjoy the location. We have a very active Board of Directors looking to make your ICGA experience the best, and your Officers are absolutely in it heart and soul. Not a day goes by when an Officer doesn’t think about ICGA and how to make it better. But more than all of this, we have you! Our membership is fantastic, and we treasure each and every one of you. So as I sit here (at a Mickey Reichel auction writing this article) and consider 2007, I can say it provided many challenges I don’t want ever to face again. But I made it through this year because of the wonderful fellowship with people like you. And because of you, 2008 will be much, MUCH better!!! Go ahead and make it better for you as well. Make your reservations for the 2008 ICGA convention in St. Louis. It really will be the best Christmas present (in July) that you can give yourself…. Happy New Year, everyone!!!

Welcome to Kids’ Corner . . . Bo Peep Plate and Mug While there are several different baby plates in Carnival glass, the Bo Peep plate is the only one known with an accompanying mug. These plates and mugs are known only in marigold, but may be found in crystal. At one time Westmoreland was thought to be the maker. This is the only pattern known with a nursery rhyme theme. If anyone has more information on this subject, please let us know. (Picture on Articles Picture Page.)

Editor’s Comments by Carl T. Booker This article is being written before Thanksgiving. There are many things for which I’m thankful. I can’t name all of them, but I will name a few. First, my wife, Eunice. We have been happily married for forty-three years. She is my friend and companion and I love her dearly. Next I’m thankful for my faith and belief in God. Along with that is my love for music. My musical energy is now spent singing in the church choir and playing handbells. I’m thankful for our two sons and our six grandchildren. I’m thankful for my many friends, both inside and outside the Carnival Glass hobby. I guess I could go on and on, but I won’t. I just hope that everyone would take a minute or two and think about all the things for which he should be thankful. While shopping today I heard the Salvation Army bellringers. Some stores have not allowed the bellringers to ring outside their establishments. “It bothers our customers!” Can you believe that? Well, they don’t bother me. I try to put some money in each “pot” I pass. Maybe I can help in some small way for some less fortunate person to have some bit of food or clothing that he needs to survive. I’m thankful that I can do that. When I hear the bellringers, I always think of Christmas. Now that is a special time for which I’m thankful. I love the shopping, the music, the presents, the decorations, the gatherings, the food, the cards, and just about everything that goes along with it. I love our church service at 11:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Lighting candles at the end of the service and singing “Silent Night”

never fails to fill me with emotion. The meaning of Christmas is different for many people. For me it’s a small way in which I can celebrate the birth of the Christ Child in Bethlehem many years ago. I’m especially thankful for that. I’m thankful that I can extend to each of you my wish that you have a wonderful Christmas holiday and a New Year that’s filled with many blessed things. ------------------------------------------PICTURES IN THIS ISSUE: The pictures in this issue are from two of the 2007 convention seminars. The first picture shows a panel discussion including: Bruce Hill, Tom Mordini, Jack Targonski, and Jim Seeck. The moderator for this panel was Brian Pitman. They discussed auctions, auction prices, trends in selling [Carnival Glass]. Also discussed was listing and selling on eBay. It was very interesting. The next group of pictures show three couples who are Carnival Glass collectors: the Bookers, the Doublers, and the Dunhams. Brian Pitman was the moderator for this

panel. He asked some leading and personal questions about the panel members and how they are connected to Carnival Glass. Each couple had brought some special pieces of Carnival Glass to show and talk about. There were times when the discussion got quite emotional. It was a different approach and quite interesting. Again we are showing our articles pictures on a two-sided page. Each pictures is labeled so that you will be able to match the pictures with the articles. The regular colored insert for this issue is on Back Patterns. It is an area of identification that is often overlooked. It is hoped that you find it interesting and educational. ------------------------------------------Larry Keig has sent in a thoughtprovoking table showing membership numbers and the percentage who come to the yearly convention. Maybe it’s time some of us worked on trying to get more members and get them involved. It’s something to think about.

Condolences Our condolences are extended to the family and friends of the following deceased members: Walt Huff (Marie), Eau Claire, MI Mary Sharp (September 11, 2007), PA Glenn Sells, Chattanooga, TN Melvin Schoff, Cedar Rapids, IA Your Carnival Glass family will miss you, too.

Word has been received that Ethel Harnish has passed away. She is preceded in death by her husband, Christ. Christ and Ethel were important early collectors who, in later years, were noted for their Carnival Glass jewelry. They will be missed by their family and friends.

Northwood Bushel Baskets By Lee Markley Northwood Bushel Baskets in Carnival Glass appeared in 1910. They previously had been made in clear glass with gold decorating, flint, blue, canary opalescent, custard, and ebony non-iridized glass and were round. The Carnival version comes in many colors and shades. The round ones are reported in thirty-three distinct colors. The eight-sided ones are found in twenty-two. The round ones can be located in marigold, pastel marigold, purple, amethyst, aqua opal, blue, aqua, amber/horehound, ice green, electric blue, white, smoke, smokey blue, vaseline, olive green, violet, blue opal, amethyst slag, lavender, celeste, lime green opal, pearl, teal, lime green, lavender blue, emerald green, ice blue, ice green opal, sapphire, Persian blue, green, and sapphire opal. Colors found in the eight-sided are amethyst, purple, blue, green, marigold, pastel marigold, ice blue, ice green, white, clambroth, lavender, aqua, electric blue, amber/horehound, Renninger blue, coke bottle aqua, and seafoam green. Eleven hundred thirty-one sales were recorded just from 1986 to 2005 by the Mordini Auction Price Guides. I didn’t take time to tabulate how many were listed in all the sale brochures that have come my way. Besides the time involved, one reason for that is the early sale brochures didn’t list the round and eight-sided separately. That would make it impossible to determine how many of each actually came on the market. From my figures it would seem that about two and one

Pump Page #4

half times as many round ones appear as the eight-sided. Before discussing the availability of various colors, the design and variations should be done. The round baskets are five inches across at the handles and four and threeeighths inches across the top. They are four and five-sixteenths inches tall at the handle and three and seven-sixteenths to the top of the rim. The distance from one foot to the opposite one is three and threefourths inches. The bottom diameter is three and three-eighths inches. There is a cable at both the top and bottom including the feet. There is a pillar extending from each foot to the bottom of the top cable and four others that extend from the base to the bottom of each side of the handles. The handles are molded, and there are four mold lines running through the body and the feet. The signature is always on the inside base which is plain. The eight-sided baskets are five and seven-sixteenths inches across at the handles and five inches across the top. They are four inches high to the top of the handle and three and one-fourth inches to the top rim. Like round ones, there is a cable at the top and base including the feet. There are four mold lines which run through the body and the feet. Four of the pillars run from the feet to the bottom of the cable at the top rim. Four others extend from the base to the inside base which is plain. The distance from one foot to the opposite one is three and three-fourths inches. The base is three and sevensixteenths inches across. Besides the two varieties of shapes, there are two other varia-

tions. Both round and eight-sided ones are found with smooth bases on the handles. Two colors (green and purple) had been reported in both shapes. Recently in a conversation with Ingrid Spurrier, she indicated there was a marigold one in a Canadian collection. She didn’t know which shape. The other variation has the handles turned up vertically. The only two I’m aware of with that feature were found by Ray Steele. One of those is pictured in the photo of the two eight-sided baskets. He sold the first to me and then found the second which sold at his sale. They were both blue. Which colors are the scarce ones? That really is difficult to answer. The vaseline, lime green opal, sapphire, ice blue, and ice green opal in the round shape don’t show up often at auction. As one can see from the chart there were four lime green opal and four ice blue ones sold. One of the lime green opal ones was a repeat sale. I know of four--three known in collectors’ hands and the fourth in a family’s holdings here in Indiana. Unfortunately none resides in Mentone. There were a half dozen vaseline sales. Most have been found in New England although I know of one found at a local sale in Iowa. There have been single sales of ice green opal, Persian blue, olive green, blue opal, amethyst slag, celeste, pearl, teal, and lavender blue. One described as Renninger’s blue was actually a light to midrange cobalt blue. The eight-sided ones that are not often seen at auction are clambroth, lavender, aqua, amber/horehound, Renninger blue, coke bottle aqua, (continued on page 5)

and one called seafoam green at a Burns auction in 1999. I have one that Tom Burns and Billy Richards called sapphire when they saw it. It was bought from Nancy Williams as teal back in 1978. The sales figures have a limitation as to determining how many of a particular color may exist. First there isn’t agreement as to what certain colors are. One person’s lavender may be another's violet, etc. Sometimes there’s a bit of creativity in catalog descriptions. Some sales of the more common colors like marigold, blue, and purple, don’t make the price list because they don’t bring high prices like some of the pastels. The smooth handled baskets really are uncommon in either green or purple in either shape. A total of six sales for the eight-sided ones and ten of the round ones is recorded. There may be more sitting in collections whose owners are unaware that they may be different from the regular green and purple. There are probably more than two of the turned-up handled ones and probably more colors as people aren’t aware of the difference. There are some color designations that may get lumped in with the more easily found main colors or they may have changed hands privately or purchased at auctions not reported nationally. If you have something like black amethyst that wasn’t mentioned, write and let me or the editor know. The Carnival Pump is published quarterly by The International Carnival Glass Association.

Articles Up-Dates Freefold Vase Update Barb Chamberlain Roy Hieger is always on the lookout for the uncommon colors, but has found them fairly scarce. He's tried to get white and green vases, but they went for more than he had bid. He has one of the short (4 1/ 4 inch) versions in marigold. The base measures 2 7/8 inches and has the twelve-point star. He's noticed that a fair number of sellers and carnival collectors don't seem to recognize the short vases as Freefold. I also have a 12 3/4 inch tall smoke , with a 2 7/8 inch base, and twelve-point star, and a purple 11 3/4 inch, with a 3 1/4 inch base and sixteen-point star. -----------------------------------------------------------------

1. Dugan and Diamond Colors. Two notes: The article on “Dugan and Diamond Colors” (The Pump, December 2006) has been revised and expanded. The new version includes additional colors, further examples, and additional anecdotes. I will be happy to forward it, electronically, to anyone who would like to read it. (It’s a Microsoft Word document.) If you require a paper copy, we’ll need to make other arrangements. I have written more comprehensive articles on some of the Dugan-Diamond colors for the Air Capitol Carnival Glass Club newsletter. Thus far, these are Cobalt Blue (July 2007) and the Vivid Greens (Sept. 2007). (http://www.aircapitalcarnivalglass.com/) 2. Ski Star (The Pump, March 2007). Rick Graham informed me that he and Debbie found a small ruffled bowl with tightly crimped edge in peach opal. 3. Single Flower Framed (The Pump, September 2007). A peach opal tri-cornered Single Flower Framed was offered for sale on eBay in early November 2007. 4. Beaded Basket (most recently, The Pump, September 2006). A Beaded Basket with a vaseline base sold at a Burns auction in 1991. One that was listed as vaseline in the auction brochure sold late this summer in a Richards auction.


Pretty Panels by Barb Chamberlain Pretty Panels, a Northwood Pattern, is a rather plain piece of carnival glass that has a beautiful hand painted enamel floral pattern. I would believe that this, and other enameled patterns, would have been some of Northwood’s earliest carnival glass. The company would have had the molds from their pattern glass decorated sets, so they could quickly become competitive in the carnival glass market with the Fenton Art Glass Company, which, as you probably know, was the first company to make carnival glass successfully . Pattern glass Pretty Panels pitchers and tumblers can be found in both green and clear glass decorated with different floral designs, as pictured in Harry Northwood, The Wheeling Years 1901-1925, by

Heacock, Measell, and Wiggins. The Pretty Panels tumbler is one of the harder enameled patterns to find. As far as I know, it is found only in marigold. The exterior is plain, except for a v-ring near the top edge of the tumbler. The interior features eighteen panels. I thought, at first, that this pattern was painted on the Barbella tumbler blank, as the Apple Blossom enamel design is, but Barbella has only fourteen (14) interior panels. Northwood obviously had a number of different paneled plungers for tumbler interiors, because some carnival glass tumbler patterns feature twenty-four (24) or twenty-six (26) interior panels, in addition to the eighteen (18) and fourteen (14) panels. From what I can determine, the Cara Nome and Connie enamel pat-

*Based on Lee Markley’s statistics, September isssue of each year’s Pump. From 1997 to 2006, membership dropped by at least 46.3%. That percentage may be a bit higher because Lee reported the membership at 1800+, not an exact figure, so we used 1800 in calculating the 10-year decline.

terns used the same tumbler mold. These tumblers are paired with tall tankard Wide Panel Variant pitchers, found in marigold and white. The iridescence on the white Connie set has been determined to have been caused by the satin finishing that was done with acid. What we consider iridescence on carnival glass has generally been achieved by spraying with metallic salts, and then the item has been reheated to set the iridescence. The Pretty Panels painting can feature either white or reddish maroon buds. Our tumbler measures about four inches tall, has a base of about two and one-half inches and a top diameter of three inches. It is marked with a faint N in a circle. It has a collar base, which is rather uncommon to enameled tumblers. I do enjoy the enameled carnival glass patterns, and they do make a good contrast to the molded patterns. If you have a different base color in Pretty Panels, or one with a different color of buds, please email me at dbcham@iowatelecom.net, or send a note to me at: 124 E. Honey Creek Dr., Manchester, IA 52057. I will try to include updates in future issues of The Pump.
