    This vase confuses me, but I'm not an expert. Seems barely, if at all, fluorescent under black light. It is perhaps iridescent and certainly shines. Would love to know anything about it. Apologies for photo rotation problems. Thanks for looking.

      the pattern for your J.I.P. (jack in the pulpit) vase looks to be Westmoreland Glass 'Corinth'; those carnival colors can be tricky to ID but I think this is perhaps marigold on moonstone.

      I checked Wiki and it seems Westmoreland produced Carnival Glass from 1920-1984. Any guess as to the period this vase is from? Seems they might have called the J.I.P., Marigold on milk glass or Marigold on moonstone. It says they were originally known for producing milk glass from 1889, and then produced carnival from 1920 and beyond. Can one make a combination of Carnival and milk glass in a single piece? Don't mean to take up your time. Ignore this if you're busy, but thanks again.

      I've seen the Corinth pattern shown in 1909 Butler catalogs; at the time the carnival iridescent finish was called 'Tiffany effect'. My guess would be that yours is a fairly early piece, as that was when it was most popular. In later years most Westmoreland glass was marked. Carnival glass can be produced in many colors and combinations. Most often you'll see marigold on clear glass, which is called marigold carnival glass. Carnival glass can be produced from any glass by applying liquid metallic salts to the hot glass. and are good sites to learn about carnival glass.
