Coronet (Princeton), Inwald

The Coronet pattern was produced by the Czechoslovakian company, Josef Inwald. While a number of shapes were produced in crystal, the carnival shapes that have surfaced thus far are vases in three sizes: 6.5-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch. There is also a 6-inch vase-like shape identified as a grape-washer. A bowl is reported. The vases all have the registration number 735621 moulded into the edge of the base. They are known in two colors: a deep marigold, and a shimmering yellowish iridescence that Inwald called Irise.

The first carnival vase to surface in this pattern was found by John Britt in 1998. Not being able to identify it, he named it Princeton. Several years later Glen and Steve Thistlewood discovered its attribution and its original, and contemporary, name.
