Information provided by Carl and Eunice Booker: “This Waverly bowl in peach opalescence was recently found in an antique mall in Missouri. At first glance it was thought to be Pillow and Sunburst. On closer inspection it was discovered not to be that pattern. Upon researching it, the pattern was discovered in a Westmoreland online catalogue page. Westmoreland made the pattern in a round bowl and in a creamer and sugar set. To our knowledge this is the first piece to be found in carnival glass. (The glob on the pictures is a manufacturer's flaw.)
This bowl is a round bowl in the ice cream shape. It measures 8 1/2 inches in diameter. That's about all that can be said for it until additional information can be found.”
This pattern is exterior only (interior is plain). It is made up of 16 double rows of serrated lines alternating with smooth flared rays – the serrated lines end at a diamond shape with alternating file and hobstars. The edge has 8 points and a rim around the inside (making one think it may have been made from the bottom of a covered piece). The base has a 24 point star.
The Westmoreland Specialty Company made the pattern circa 1896, and none of the pictured pieces on the EAPG (Early American Press Glass) site have this type of edge.
