CORINTH Bowl: is a distinctly ribbed design found in a variety of shapes from the basic 8 ¾?- 9?bowl. Occasionally you will find a flattened version, referred to as a plate, although most of these have slightly turned up edges. Another shape is the banana bowl with two sides turned up. In addition to the blue opal, aqua, amber, marigold, purple/amethyst, teal, moonstone, milk glass, peach opalescent and green/olive tones will come to your attention as you search for Westmoreland Glass.

1909 Butler Bros. Wholesale Catalog Ad: Offers examples of familiar Westmoreland patterns,  to include the Corinth and the Pearly Dots bowls.

PEARLY DOTS Compote in Peach Opal - VERY Scarce Compote.Sold $135. by Seeck Auctions at the 2005 HOACGA Convention auction.

PEARLY DOTS Small Compote - Blue Opal: Approximately 6?6 ½?tall, additional colors known are amethyst, amber, green and moonstone and milk glass base. Few appear in the carnival glass sales circuit in any given year and they stir little interest, perhaps as a result of their scarcity? Over a five year period, with six examples having been sold, the highest price paid was for a blue opal at $195!

PEARLY DOTS Small Compote - Peach Opal:  Actually a very pretty piece of glass. Should it be attractive to you, one in this color can be purchased for less than $100 on occasion. Items seen less frequently than well-known patterns are not recognized with ready acceptance. However, should you be a collector who desires the 搈ore unusual pieces? this should make you happy.

PEARLY DOTS Small Compote - Milk Glass:  This extruded shape would be difficult to duplicate, presuming it is the result of a glass handlers' inability to maintain the 搉ormal?compote shape because the glass was just too hot. Rare? We suspect that it is 搎uite so?

PEARLY DOTS Bowl - Blue Opal:  These can be 7 ¾?- 8 ½?or so in diameter. Bowls with a 3/1 edge can be found in up to 9 ¼?size. Additional bowl colors known: lime, vaseline, amber, green, marigold, peach opal, and amethyst. A rosebowl shape is found occasionally. These are shaped from the basic bowl.

PEARLY DOTS Bowl - Green:  This shade of green is not often found in this pattern. Many times more than five or more years pass with none reported on auction brochures with 300 or so pieces per sale!! Are these 搃mportant?collector items? If interested in true rarity, this is one! Will it bring big dollars and create a lot of excitement when seen in a carnival glass auction among many other patterns? NO! MOST Westmoreland patterns are much more rare than anything from other manufacturers, but for that specific reason, collectors have not been exposed to the 揾ype?and   promotion associated with-(dare I say it one more time?)----Peacocks and Good Lucks and Three Fruits. It's true none-the-less.

PEARLY DOTS Bowl - Amethyst: Fewer than half dozen of these bowls in any color turn up at auction during an average five year period, so when we say that during the years 1999-2003, not a single example in amethyst color sold at carnival glass auctions, you will understand just how rare these are! Who cares? Very few collectors. Most carnival glass manufactured by Westmoreland is extremely scarce when compared to those patterns from the Big Five producers! For the most part, collectors want those patterns which are most available.
We have seen an ice cream shaped bowl in what could only be termed lavender color. It is quite light with no streaking or slag effect in the glass. Iridescence is evenly applied, creating quite an unusual example in this pattern.

PEARLY DOTS Bowl -  Amethyst Exterior: This photo speaks for itself. The smooth exterior is never expounded upon and seldom displayed in auction brochures but this non-iridized surface is found on all these bowls.

 
Possibly  a Variant of PEARLY DOTS or SCALES.

Variant Compote - Irididized Blue Milk Glass: Mentioned in the HOACGA Compote section of their carnival glass inserts, we shall leave this one to your discretion. It would seem to be a modification of either Scales or Pearly Dots; perhaps an experiment using a combination of both designs.


Dean & Diane Fry - 7-06

In the world of today, inappropriate behavior is often blamed on environmental factors, such as poor economic conditions, lack of educational opportunities, or running with the wrong crowd. While those conditions can impact a person's development and attitude toward life, it is significant to note that Adam and Eve were privileged to live in the only perfect and flawless environment (the Garden of Eden) the world has ever known - yet they chose disobedience over obedience. Ultimately, the greatest challenges in life do not come from around us but from within  us!
