This fabulous example
of Carnival glass was made by the Imperial company of Bellaire in Ohio (that’s
in the USA doncha know?)
of this stuff after about 1910 and suppliers to none other than
Woolworths. This plate is in the ‘Acanthus’
design . Production continued until
1930 and after the depression they were going strong again in the 1940s. Another quiet patch and then they started up
again in the 1960s and closed in 1985.
Later pieces are marked with LIG – ours isn’t.
Now you may be

These sell for $80 in
the USA. We are offering ours for a
“Beautifully iridized” (An
