The carnival glass of interest to most collectors is a iridized pressed glass that was produced from shortly after the turn of the century into the late 1920's. Starting in 1907, the Fenton Art Glass Company became the first company to produce this type of glass and became one of the leading producers.
This beautiful blue carnival swung vase is the "Spearhead & Rib Variant" pattern in which the spearheads are actually diamond shaped. Unlike the regular spearhead and rib pattern where the ribs are "broken", this vase has no breaks and the ribs run from top to bottom. A "swung" vase is made by pressing glass into a mold, reheating it and swinging it from the end of the rod until the neck gets longer and longer. The mouth of the vase is then tooled and polished and sometimes flared or ruffled.
This vase measures and impressive 14 1/2" in height and 3 3/4" across the base. The variation of rich blue, rose and bronze iridescence is gorgeous. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
