Carnival Glass Vases

Page last updated December 21, 2016


Carnival Glass vases are basically of two types; moulded and swung. Actually, swung vases are simply moulded vases that, once removed from the pressed-glass mold, have been reheated in the furnace and “swung” on the end of a long rod–the centrifugal force pulling the glass into the elongated shape with which we’re familiar. An example of this is the short Big Basketweave vase (left photo) which is pretty much as it came from the mould. It would then be swung up to the heights of the others shown. The tops were often flared or ruffled on the swung versions. In the right photo is a more-or-less typical European vase, Curved Star, that has not been swung. Few non-U.S. makers swung their vases. A few vases were made by blowing them into a mould.
