Carnival Glass from the Morse Collection
October 05, 2004 through March 03, 2006
From 1908 to about 1918, mass-produced, pressed-glass objects with brilliantly colored iridescent surfaces were wildly popular throughout the world.
First produced in the United States, this rainbow-hewed art class was known by a variety of names, including “Poor Man’s Tiffany” in its heyday and Carnival Glass in its declining years. The exhibit includes more than 35 examples from this phenomenon of early 20th-century decorative art.
