Smooth Rays was first manufactured by Westmoreland in the 1910 period. Much later -70s Westmoreland again made some carnival glass, but I am not sure of this pattern. Several companies made this pattern, but Westmoreland's rays continue to the center well to form the starburst at the bottom base. They are also smooth as opposed to Fenton's stippled rays. The Smooth Rays also stop before they reach the outer edge.
Carnival glass is glass that has been painted in an iridescent finish. This one is marigold which is orange with purple and green tones reflecting.
This is a nine inch bowl with six ruffles. The iridescent finish is inside the bowl. The edge is smooth. I do see a bit of very light wear at the bottom rim at the drop to the well and again very minor scratches/dots elsewhere. There is also a 1/4 inch bubble and a couple of smaller ones within the glass underneath which came from the manufacturer. I also see the straw mark. Overall it is in very good condition with a fine reflective finish. It isn't marked.
