      I love the first two pieces and the color on first one is striking, it looks like carnival. But I am definetly no expert by any means when it comes to glass. There are some great glass collectors on here that I am sure will be able to help you out on info.

      Thank you for the comment and showin some love on this item Stihl! You and I both agree it is carnival. Now let us hear from an expert to confirm. : ) Have a great evening my friend....

      Your first piece (the low ruffled bowl) is Contemporary Carnival and was made in (circa) the 1970s by the Indiana Glass Co (Dunkirk, IN). Indiana called it the "Hostess" plate and it was made in iridescent blue (as shown here), gold and lime green. You can read a bit more about Indiana's Contemporary Carnival here:

      I forgot to comment on your other piece (the pretty little cornucopia vase). It is not Carnival - it is blue opalescent pressed glass.

      Carnival Glass must be iridized. A good "working" definition for Carnival is (press) moulded, iridized glass, (usually) with a pattern. My caveats are in parentheses.

      You are so awesome Glen for providing the information that you did. I am so thankful and appreciative! I would appreciate if you could answer a couple more questions for me. If not that is okay as well. Do you know the age on the blue opalescent vase, who possibly made it, and what if any value there is in both of these? Thank you in advance and have a blessed day! : ) Hopefully I can return the favor in helping you with a collectable question you have in the future....

      Well it seems like the Hostess plate is $10-$20 based on the site below. Still a cool item to have! : )

      Your Cornucopia Candleholders were made by Fenton Glass Co. in"Blue Opalescent Hobnail" circa 1941 to 1955. Book value $18.00 to $25.00 for the Miniature ones and $45.00-$65.00 for larger size ones. LOU
