Devoted to the collecting and accurate documentation of Carnival Glass
Welcome to the home of the Carnival Glass Society (UK)
This UK based Society was formed
by a small group of collectors in 1982 and has grown to have members in
countries across the world. We are passionate about collecting, spreading
awareness and appreciating the beauty of Carnival Glass. We encourage research
into its history and circulate information through our publications.
