|Hobstar and Feather - Millersburg|
|Hobstar and Feather is named for the large hobstars and feathered plumes seen on the exterior of the pieces. Found in a curious combination of shapes including punch sets, table sets, and the giant rosebowls, some of which have been whimsied into other shapes. A few bridge set pieces are known as is a rare stemmed compote.
A marigold punch set is shown to the left and in the center is a photo of a Fleur-de-Lis pattern that is found on the interior of a few punch sets. The four table set pieces pictured above to the right are rare examples in the pattern.
Colors are the typical Millersburg amethyst, green and marigold but a punch bowl base is known in vaseline and a punch cup is known in blue. Millersburg also made the pattern in uniridized crystal.
Above to the left is one of the few pieces of Millersburg Carnival Glass in white. It is a sauce, possibly from the bridge set or simply a whimsey. It is courtesy of Winnie Brim.
The diamond-shaped bridge set piece is in marigold.
This club-shaped bridge piece was listed as frosted and ruby stained when it sold at the 2016 Heart of American Convenion auction.

|The giant rosebowl, second from left is probably the most frequently seen piece in the pattern (after punch cups), but highly desirable. At left is a giant compote, probably much like it was when released from the mold. There are only a couple of the vase whimsies, shown second from the right, and several of the spittoon shaped rosebowls. Found in amethyst and green.

Many collectors think these to be genuine Millersburg but with the iridescence applied later. Some have been found signed Terry Crider.
