About Peacocks on the Fence
Peacocks were a common pattern, well suited to carnival glass since they both have beautiful iridescence. The well balanced pattern of 2 peacocks (one with the tail down, the other with it prominently fanned out while perched on a gate (or fence) is very popular. It is found advertised in the 1912 spring edition of the Butler Bros wholesale catalog in a glassware assortment. The pattern has been found on fake bowls (made in the far east).
