York, Eda and Iittala

This marigold York vase is 8.5 inches tall. According to Glen and Steve Thistlewood in their Carnival Glass from Europe Encyclopedia, the York pattern was made by both Eda in Sweden and Iittala in Finland, possibly from the same moulds.

A wide range of shapes was made by Eda, but Glen and Steve can currently confirm that only plates, bowls, jardinieres, lidded bonbonnieres, and vases in three shapes were produced in carnival, all marigold.

It appears that some of the York moulds went to Iittala, and Glen and Steve believe that at least the footed vase was probably also produced by Iittala in marigold.

York vases were produced in three shapes: waisted vase with collar base (as in photo), flared vase with collar base, and pedestal footed vase. All three shapes may have been produced in several sizes.
