I dont really know, but I think this is carnival glass ? It was given to me by my mother. It does not have any markings, its in good condition. Mom purchased this in chicago, many years ago. It is a pretty shade of purple. Not sure what kind of glass ???

Would like to know what it is ?

Maker ? Value ? Etc.

Thank you for looking

    looks like you have a covered bon bon by Northwood Glass; Northwood #643. I'm not sure of what they called that color.

    Fenton and Diamond made bon bons in this same wide panel design; all are extremely similar. The thinner stem and mould seam seen on the plain band below the rim identifies yours as Fenton. The color was originally called Wistaria (note spelling).
    For comparison, see:

    I looks at the same comparison and it is easy to misinterpret images sometimes. With closer examination the Fenton may be it. The easiest was to tell is the lid lip design. Here is a link with larger example to check the lip design (about 2/3 way down page):

    I was also thinking Fenton. It is very hard to tell sometimes, glass makers liked to copy each other I've noticed.

    They also liked to buy and sell molds.Typically when a company went out of business they would sell their molds or when one was bought by another the molds were modified slightly or just a logo change for the new owners.

    Color is a good clue too, this color is a dead ringer for Fenton's Wistaria
