This rare vase is owned by Duane and Norma Uusitalo. Quite a massive vase, it measures 12 inches tall and 9 inches in diameter. It's in fiery or black amethyst. The maker is unknown but Glen and Stephen Thistlewood, in their book A Century of Carnival Glass, suggest Inwald as the possible manufacturer. A marigold example sold for $1,900 in 2006. Many thanks to Duane and Norma for sending this photo of this extraordinary vase.
