Britt, Karhula (Finland)
In the thirty years that I have been reporting on Carnival Glass, this is the first time I've heard of this pitcher. It sold at the Christina Katsikas auction in 2020 and was listed as a 7 1/2-inch milk pitcher in blue. It had been in the Nielson collection earlier. It brought $1,000.
This rare tumbler, in light blue, is named for John and Lucile Britt. It was Glen Thistlewood's discovery of the tumbler and pitcher in a Karhula catalog that finally established positive attribution. Quite rare, few tumblers sell at auction.

Blue, 220, 400 (both 2010), 90 (2015),
   85, 100 (both 2020)

Marigold, 80 (2009), 135 (2011),
   90 (2018), 120 (2020)


This article was published in the January 1999 issue of the HOACGA newsletter.
At that time there was only one tumbler known. Since then several more examples
have surfaced, as has at least one water pitcher. The catalog images are from
the 1934 Karhula catalog.
