Imperial's Swirl Rib

 

 

 

There are many pieces of Carnival Glass that may not be expensive and grab people's attention.

Upon reading an article on Imperial Swirl Rib on Carnival 101, we recalled seeing a console bowl and plate at a local antiques store. Getting the best of us, we drove up to the store with tape measurer in hand and discovered that the dimensions were much larger than was written about. Bowls have been documented in sizes 6"-9" and plates 8", 9" and12". The bowl that we purchased was 11 1/4" and the plate was 14 1/4".

We reported our find to Carnival Glass 101 with photographs and dimentions, and the editors quickly posted the information to their site.

On the weekend of May 11, we attended a Tom Burns Auction in Bath, New York, and had the winning bid on the Swirl Rib Candlesticks, which are a variant of Premium pattern. These have a swirled rib pattern on the underside, and the Premium candlesticks do not.

What a wonderful Console Set.

Swirl Rib can be found in flat plates, plates, several sized bowls, candlesticks, vases, stemmed sherberts, center-handled servers, cups, saucers, creamers, open sugars, and a mug.

Colors are mainly clambroth, marigold, smoke, and white.
