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.
Visit our Spectacular
Exhibition of Carnival Glass
from the Anthony and Maureen Ward Collection
on display at 78 Derngate, Northampton
at the Amazing ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh’ House
1 February to 28 April 2019
when famous artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh remodelled 78
Derngate for its new owner, famous model maker Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke, carnival
glass was at the height of its popularity. Look out for items in this
magnificent display that reflect Mackintosh’s designs including
stylised flowers and striking geometric lines. (Click here for further
information about the exhibition, location and opening times).
