Known in marigold, amethyst, and light blue with 14 subtle interior panels. Writing in the December 2004, Carnival Pump (International Carnival Glass Association), Larry Keig says,
“The Optic pattern seems to have been confined only to vases of a moderate size. They range in height from about 7.5 inches tall to a bit over 9 inches, depending on how much they were swung during production. A simple pattern made up of a paneled interior and a star base, they are plain on the outside. The 23-point star is pressed into the exterior of the 2.5-inch base. The configuration of their tops is characteristically Dugan/Diamond, the hexagonal flat-paneled treatment that is also seen on most Circle Scroll, Lattice and Points, and Nautilus and on many Standard vases.”
These vases are mostly sold in box lots with other pieces of carnival glass so it is very hard to establish prices. These vases are also quite often misidentified when selling.
