Great Deals On Less Than Perfect Carnival Glass!
|Brought to you exclusively by Colleywood Carnival Glass Company
America's #1 Home For High Quality Vintage Carnival Glass!
|Like everyone else who has ever collected vintage carnival glass, Colleywood Carnival Glass has collected many pieces of nice
vintage carnival glass over the last 43+ years, that frankly, do not meet our high quality standards. We can't just throw it all away,
because after all, damaged pieces or not, you just don't discard 80-100+ year old antique carnival glass pieces! To us, that is
morally wrong. So, we came up with the idea of having our " Bargain Basement" page where you'll find many 'bruised but
beautiful' pieces of vintage carnival glass at bargain prices.
Some of these offered pieces are even considered "rare" but simply don't meet our high quality standards we try very hard to
maintain. We didn't set out to purposely collect these 'bruised but beautiful' carnival glass pieces, but more or less got
'snuckered into' purchasing them over the years!
So, with this in mind, here are some really nice 80-100 year old carnival glass pieces that are less than perfect!
If you purchase any of them, you are doing so "AS-IS" and we will not accept them back for a refund!

|Presenting a Northwood Peacock on the Fence 9" plate, a small pith and some enclosed
carbon specks. Nice!
|This piece is a beautiful
cobalt blue Northwood
Peacock on the Fence 9"
plate with ribbed back.
However, it has too many
small issues to be listed on
the regular site pages of our
website, hence will be listed
here. It's problem is that it
has a small front side ash
pith imbed in the front side
and has tiny carbon specks
enclosed in the glass itself. If
you study the photos, front
view & back view, shown to
the immediate left, you can
pretty much see all the
"from the original making"
manufacturing issues. We
will wash up this plate and
re-photo it soon. Please
watch for it, since we will be
putting a good selling price
on this bargian basement
piece. There seems to be no
physical damage on the
plate, so it is not that bad of
a collector piece.
Listing coming soon!

|Here's a beautiful rare Northwood Hearts & Flowers plate in nice ice blue! It is perfect
except for a small flat flake chip out just inside of two rim teeth on the outer perimeter of
the plate. It's really hard to find on close inspection and doesn't even show up when the
plate is on display. But it is there, so we mention it.

very rare ice blue Northwood 9" sawtooth plate.
Frankly, we missed the flake chip, and thus, we
This can work to your advantage, since the

displayed in a plate holder.

glass color! This is
our loss and your
|One nick between two rim teeth keeps us from calling this a
rare mint Northwood Good Luck 8-9" ruffled bowl in rare
horehound base glass with a superbly iridized Basketweave
back side. No other damage or unsightly manufacturing issues.
Just look at the photos and we think you'll want to add this rare
very slightly damaged ruffled bowl to your collection.
Sadly, we made a big buying mistake thinking it was a beautiful
undamaged bowl, but later found the slight damage. Too late to
cry then, since it was now ours "lock, stock and barrel". Yes,
even we get the shaft once in a while!
Anyway, it's still a rare & beautiful piece with one tiny nick
between two rim teeth. It displays well, not showing the damage
unless you know just where to look for it. We missed it when we
examined it on display at the auction! David Doty shows these in
a selling price range of $275 - $500. We have $325 wrapped up
in it but offer it here and now for the bargain basement price.

|Presenting A Foot Damaged Fenton Orange Tree Pitcher And 6 Good Tumblers In Cobalt Blue At A Very
Affordable Price. At A Price A Lot Less Than We Paid For It! Two Feet Of The Pitcher Are Chipped. One
Foot Is Heavily Chipped, While The Other Foot Is Slightly Chipped. This Is A Wonderful Shelf 7 Piece Water
Set Which Is Very Hard To Find OutIn The Marketplace!
|Here is a Fenton Orange Tree 7 piece water
set we really got took on at the auction. We
bought the set through absentee bidding
and were told the set had some minor foot
fleas on the pitcher. Well, as you can see
from the many photos to the left, we got
more than foot fleabites on the two feet of
this otherwise beautiful water pitcher, we
got one foot heavily chipped and another
foot slightly chipped. Because of this
damage we simply can't sell this beautiful
water set on our regular site pages. Our
giant $$$ loss will become someone's gain!

|Here's an "tale of two sides" piece! A Fenton Orange Tree 9" twelve sided plate in
beautiful cobalt blue! No damage! But, does it ever have one big maufacturing issue! It's
missing most of its back side iridescence! Someone at the Fenton factory feel asleep!
|We got snuckered on this piece by buying it in a Seeck on-line
auction where no backside picture was posted in the auction
and it was never mentioned in the auction item description
that the back side iridescence was virtually non existent!
So, there you have it! Our mistake for trusting the auctioneer
to mention the back side problem. Well, they didn't, so we are
stuck with a plate we are calling the "tale of two sides" piece!
Our guess is the guy at the Fenton factory simply had a
problem with his iridescence application sprayer getting
temporarily plugged up and just let this piece slip by him
during his problem time!
Anyway, whatever happened is really unknown, but we now
have the task of finding this piece a new home.
It's just beautiful on the front side with no hint of the back side
calamity! It has no physical damage! So, it would make a
excellent shelf display piece or a real conversation oddity.
Either way, here's the bottom line. You get this front sided
beauty for just $ 100.00 plus $20 shipping. We paid $200.00 for
it on-line. Then we had to pay the shipping to be sent here.
