Way back when I started 'collecting' things from the past, one of the first items I noticed at an auction was Carnival glass.
It triggered something in me.....this glass seemed familiar. Possibly I remember it when I was a child.
Or it could be that I liked the colours and patterns. There are hundreds of patterns.
So I began to collect it. From bowls to vases and anything in between.
We visited antiques and collectibles shops and attended lots of auctions.
I used to have quite a few vases but a few years ago I sold a number of them by consignment at our local antiques shop.
But I still have a few left....the ones from which I didn't want to part.
These pieces were not expensive at all back in the 30's and 40's. But like everything else they are valued today.
I find it amazing that so much of this glass has survived at all.
These vases were just a few pieces of what I have. I will feature other Carnival patterns as soon as I locate them! lol
