Reproductions – Acanthus Old

From Elaine Blair’s Reproductions At-A-Glance (full article here)

Our definition of a reproduction is a pattern using the same mold (or a mold very similar to the original) that could confuse collectors.

“The following is a compilation of information from a variety of sources…standard references in the carnival glass field, information shared by the members of the Hooked on Carnival daily newsletter, and personal experience.”
