York, Eda and Iittala

This marigold York vase is 8 1/2 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 confirm that only plates, bowls, jardinieres, lidded bonbonnieres, and vases in three shapes were produced in carnival, all 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.

This marigold six-inch York plate (reverse shown) sold at a Jim Seeck auction in 2022 for $160.
