Season 4

Season 4, Episode 1 (What are 3 very important things to consider when purchasing carnival glass?)
The season has started with a toughie: what kinds of things will Dr. CG Glass give us for pointers when purchasing carnival glass? One for the money, two for the show and three to get ready?? Let's GO!

Season 4, Episode 2 (What is ‘electric' colored carnival glass?)
When someone calls a piece of carnival glass ‘electric' something, what do they mean? And how well is online dating working for Dr. Glass' mother-in-law? Are all things relative?

Season 4, Episode 3 (How much glass is too much glass?)
Can there ever be too much of a good thing? Can you really have too much money, good wine, chocolate or carnival glass? We hope this episode won't have you snoring….

Season 4, Episode 4 (How light is light blue, light marigold, etc.?)
We hope to find out from the good Doctor what constitutes ‘light' when added to a carnival glass color – it would be nice if he could add some ‘light' to the subject. And Boris' snoring has become a major problem – not just for him. Is there an easy (and cheap) solution?

Season 4, Episode 5 (What are some of the ‘old' patterns in carnival glass that have been reproduced/copied?)
Is there any way to find out which patterns in carnival glass have been reissued, have been created as new patterns or even those that are faked? A comprehensive list can be found here: Contemporary carnival glass list

Season 4, Episode 6 (What is the difference between carnival glass and stretch glass?)
Our Doctor needs to Stretch his knowledge to answer one collector's question. Can he do it? Also, something a little fishy may come to be a giant help in raising Tasha's spirits! Let's see what that might be!

Season 4, Episode 7 (Did Imperial Glass make any carnival glass of monetary value?)
The Doctor hopes to take on the question as to whether Indiana Glass can be considered a valuable collectable. What are your thoughts? Can questions like this place the Doctor in shark infested waters? You can never tell what floats through his mind!

Season 4, Episode 8 (When did Fenton make carnival glass?)
This weeks Dr. Glass is all about history. And who doesn't like history? Think back to the glory days of Hollywood and the filming of all those great old pictures. The days where a director barked out commands from a canvas chair into a cone like megaphone like “Role 'em” or “Cut” and the thankless job of some poor sole who had to keep track of what was going on. Classic history! As is the history of Fenton Carnival Glass. When was their “hey day” of producing this beautiful product for our pleasure. And have they made additional pieces since those beginning days? The Doctor hopes to bring up that history as well to answer your questions.

Season 4, Episode 9 (What's up with Northwood and green pigment streaks?)
Have you ever washed your clothes and didn’t realize that you left a pen in your pocket? Pretty annoying to find green ink streaks on your favorite shirt when you remove it from the washer, isn’t it? Well, I don’t think that one would dare wash your Carnival Glass in a washer along a green ink pen tumbling around with it at the same time. So, how do green pigment streaks show up on Northwood’s Green and Ice Green pieces of Carnival glass? Let’s see if the Doctor can help us out. Also, when the worker’s contract includes a snack break, what might the favorite breaktime snack for the Doctor’s help consist of? Mmmmm! Yum!

Season 4, Episode 10 (Here's some geometric European carnival glass for your enjoyment.)
Geometric patterns, anyone? – Dr Glass looks at some vintage European patterns in this episode. Here’s a direction you may not have realized existed….speaking of directions, could Dr Glass be the first person to take carnival glass into outer space? We shall see!

Season 4, Episode 11 (Here's more European carnival glass for your enjoyment.)
This week’s episode of Dr. Glass continues answering last week’s great question concerning European Carnival Glass. From what additional countries can we expect to find beautiful examples of Carnival? Let’s see what he comes up with this week. Also, Can it true? Will the Doctor be sent out of this world on a Russian launch vehicle to broadcast from space? Did Svetlana exercise her special charms with Vladimir to ensure a few orbits for C.G.  Looks like there may be a new “Rocket Man” in the news soon.

Season 4, Episode 12 (What are the shades of blue in carnival glass?)
Space, the Final Frontier. This is the voyage of a brave soul on a mission to seek out answers to the unknown. To boldly go where no Glass has gone before.
Doctor’s Log:  Star Date 11-28-2018:  Elaine Blair seeks the answer to “What are the shades of Blue in Carnival Glass”?
Problem: Not an easy answer with such a short time in space.
Solution: The only “logical answer” is to approach that great question partially from space and once again upon return to earth, Star Dates 12-5-2018 and 12-12-2018.
Problem Resolved. Boris, Tasha, Beam me up!

Season 4, Episode 13 (Shades of blue in carnival glass part two)
This week the Doctor continues to take on last weeks question about all the shades of blue in Carnival Glass. A daunting job that needs more than just one episode to sufficiently answer. This week will be the second in the series on Blue, so let’s keep those “Blues” a comin’! We also might add a new shade of blue. A shade that might be called “Black and Blue.” That shade which looks like the color of bumps and bruises a person might experience in a rough ground landing in Russia after a week in space. Yet, whatever goes up, must come down! So, let's get “down” to business once again on good old Terra Firma. Rocket Man take it away.

Season 4, Episode 14 (Shades of blue in carnival glass part three)
It’s appropriate that the third in a series of Dr. Glass episodes attempting to describe the many shades of Blue in Carnival Glass be aired during the Christmas Blue theme of December’s Mailing List. After viewing these several episodes of Dr. Glass, it may be fun to take a Gander at the posting of collectors that have sent in pictures of their Blue Carnival Glass to the Mailing List. This may give you a better idea of the variety of Blue pieces that have been produced. Speaking of taking a “Gander,” can a person be made to “quack” like a duck or bark like a dog? What would it take to influence the good Doctor to do such outrageous things, especially on the air? Tasha and Boris know!
