    Carnival glass corn cob vase. Sorry I can't seem to rotate for this post. Inherited from my parents who were quite knowledgeable collectors. They were smitten with it. I don't get anything but a perhaps a minor sense of iridescence or shine. Shine green under black light. See photo. Any value? Thanks for looking.

      This is a fun, quirky vase...but it is vaseline glass rather than carnival glass, though. Carnival has a distinct iridescent finish like a rainbow effect. This piece does have some opalescence, due to the use of bone ash in the mixture...when reheated after the initial process of forming the opalescence "strikes" & that creates the milky effect. The UV glow is caused by the use of uranium in the glass mixture. Made by Northwood originally c.1905. It has been reproduced later though.

      No value, I'll take it off your hands. LOL I was raised on a farm in Iowa and I love corn motifs - love it.
