Here’s a great description on David Doty’s Carnival Glass Website:

What is Carnival Glass?

This is a question that confuses many people new to collecting Carnival. Primarily, Carnival Glass is pressed glass that has had an iridescent coating applied. Remember, if it isn’t iridized, it isn’t Carnival.

Pressed glass? This is glass that has been formed by being pressed into a mold while in a hot molten form. As it cools, it takes on the shape and detail of the mold. Once removed from the mold, and while still relatively hot, it is sprayed with metallic salts in liquid form which gives it the “oil-on-water” multicolor appearance.

Carnival Glass was first produced by Fenton in 1907 and continues to be made today. There were 5 or 6 major makers of it originally, but Fenton is the only one of the original group still in business.

I don’t know why I think of breakage when I look at Fenton Art Glass items. They are thick pieces of glass and are usually found in great condition.

The Fenton brothers started Fenton Art Glass company in an old glass factory in 1905. It was located in Martins Ferry, Ohio but quickly moved to Williamstown, West Virginia according to the Wikipedia article.

They started selling Hobnail milk glass in 1939 which is still available today on eBay.
