Carnival glass is a type of patterned glass that features a shiny, iridescent shimmer thanks to the metallic salts that were applied to it during its firing process. It was a relatively inexpensive way to create a particularly decorative type of glass and was first produced by the Fenton Art Glass Company in the early 1900s.
The resultant carnival glass table lamps that were produced by Fenton and then many other manufacturers has resulted in a collection of lamps that hold their beauty as well as their value. These lamps feature many color combinations and when combined with the many different unusual shapes and designs provide a rich range of decorative choices.
