Hobstar and Feather, Millersburg
Hobstar and Feather is named for the large hobstars and feathered plumes seen on the exterior of the pieces. Found in a curious combination of shapes including punch sets, table sets, and the giant rosebowls, some of which have been whimsied into other shapes. A few bridge set pieces are known as is a rare stemmed compote. The four table set pieces above represent about half of the known examples in the pattern. A tumbler sold a few years ago, but some collectors question its authenticity. Millersburg also made the pattern in uniridized crystal.

Above is one of the few pieces of Millersburg Carnival Glass in white. It is a sauce, possibly from the bridge set or simply a whimsey. It is courtesy of Winnie Brim. The marigold compote above sold at the 2003 ACGA convention auction for $1,800. Photo courtesy of Burns Auctions.
The diamond-shaped bridge set piece in marigold, at left, sold in 2003 for $1,000. Another, or perhaps the same one, sold in 2011 for $450. In 2015, another one brought $350 and a heart-shaped piece brought $300.
This club-shaped bridge piece was listed as frosted and ruby stained when it sold at the 2016 Heart of American Convenion auction. It brought $1,250.
The giant rosebowl, second from left is probably the most frequently seen piece in the pattern (after punch cups), but highly desirable. At left is a giant compote, probably much like it was when released from the mold. There are a couple of the vase whimsies and several of the spittoon shaped rosebowls.
