Carnival Glass is one of the most popular types of collectible glass with thousands of collectors around the world. It looks like glass with a metallic sheen, coloured in rainbows almost like the effect you get by pouring gasoline onto water. It was first made around 1907 by Fenton Art Glass, but soon afterwards it was being made by several American glassworks. Its popularity lasted until the 1920's in the USA and later in other countries. When it fell from favour, the surplus and 2nd quality products were given away as prizes at Carnivals. Hence the name!
