According to The Carnival Pump, a publication of the International Carnival Glass Association a rare Aqua Opal Grape and Cable Cracker Jar sold on October 2, 2010 in St. Louis, Mo. for $67,500.00. This was the highest priced item sold at that auction. See photos at www.internationalcarnivalglass.com. So don’t throw out that piece of glass that looks like it’s lost its color. A marigold (light orange) Peoples Vase brought $80,000. at the recent Jim Wroda auction in Millersburg, Ohio. As a long time carnival glass collector who collects only what catches her eye, my eyes will be really open to what appear to be rare pieces! Look for tall funeral vases – 17″ high, unusual pieces and buy what you like.
