Peoples Vase, Millersburg

Manufacturer: Millersburg
Pattern Description: A tall heavy cylinder shaped vase with Dutch people dancing on cobblestones.
Shapes in Database: Vase
Colors in Database: Amethyst/Purple, Blue*

*Not all colors are available in every shape.

The most desirable of all Carnival vases–and perhaps of all Carnival patterns. Apparently made by Millersburg as a tribute to the people of Millersburg, Ohio, where the company was located. The pattern shows people dancing. There are only about 10 known. They include amethyst (all with ruffled tops like the vase on the right), green, blue, and marigold. Two in amethyst were discovered in 1996 and sold at auction that year. The perfect one brought $43,000; a seriously cracked one brought $13,500. Shown are blue, green, and amethyst, all from the collection of the late Floyd and Cecil Whitley.
Interestingly, the prices on the blue vase have been tracked over the years.
