|Big Butterfly (or Butterfly)|
|This one of only two known marigold examples of this tumbler and is courtesy of the late Cecil Whitley. It moved on to another collection in 2010 for $11,000. In 2016, another example listed as marigold and with a tiny nick on the base, sold for $1,200.
Cecil also owned one of the four known tumblers in a sort of olive green. One of these green tumblers sold in 2007 for $6,000, another in 2010 for $650 and in 2014 another brought $675.
Christina Katsikas has a wonderful, and extensive, article on these rare tumblers on her site "Carnival Glass Showcase." You can view it here.
What appears to be a matching pitcher is shown, not iridized, in a 1915 US Glass catalog.
|This is the first reported pitcher in the Big Butterfly pattern. It's marigold and sold for $1,200 at the 2014 American Carnival Glass Association convention auction. It would certainly have brought more if not for a crack down the side.
