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.

Spring is in the air....... 

and what better indications of the coming of spring than flowers in bloom, trees in leaf, and birds tending their young. All of these are wonderfully encapsulated in Imperial's idyllic Homestead chop plates.

2017 National Glass Fair

The CGS had a wonderful display of carnival glass at the National Glass Fair, Motorcycle Museum, (NEC),  Solihull on 12 November. A full report on the day appears in  Newsletter 161, but here are some tasters of the 125 pieces of glass that were displayed. 


And many thanks to all those members who turned up to support the event.
