Offered for sale is a lovely mid 20th century, “Loganberry” pattern, iridescent, triangular shaped Carnival Glass bowl made by the Indiana Glass Company. Highly iridescent it is embossed with loganberries and leaves. The Indiana Glass Company, Dunkirk, Indiana, produced a lot of the “new” carnival glass, starting in the early and mid-1970's. Carnival glass gets its iridescent sheen from metallic salts having been sprayed on the surface of the glass while it was still very hot. A final firing of the glass brings out the iridescent, shimmery look caused by the presence of the salts, giving carnival glass the distinct appearance it is known for. Its current name was adopted by collectors (probably in the 1950s?) from the fact that it was sometimes given away as prizes at carnivals or fairs. However, most of it was not distributed in this way, but likely the great majority of it was purchased from retail outlets, including general stores, department stores, “dime stores”, or was given away as premiums to encourage the purchase of various products.
