Feather Swirl/Solar, US Glass

The pattern known to carnival collectors as Feather Swirl is US Glass pattern number #15116, named Solar. It was produced beginning in 1908 and marketed in crystal.

This short marigold vase was the first carnival example I've seen. It sold at a 1993 auction for $60. There was minor damage.

Some 23 years after the first vase sold at auction, this light marigold vase appeared and sold at a Burns Auction in 2016 for $190.

This 10.5-inch light marigold vase sold at the 2019 Tampa Bay auction for $425.

Hard to believe the pattern is also known in a butter dish, but here one is--the first reported. It's in marigold and sold in 2012 for $100 with minor base nicks. .
This green Feather Swirl small compote or sherbet is not only the first carnival piece to turn up in this shape, but the first green. It sold at a Seeck 2019 auction for $110, with a tiny chip on the underside of the foot.

This page from the US Glass Export Catalogue of 1919 establishes that swung vases were not
whimsies, but production-line pieces in this pattern. Page reprinted from William Heacock and Fred Bickenheuser's U.S. Glass From A to Z.
