Contemporary Carnival Glass Compotes
These compotes were made from the 1960s on, though a few would have been reissues made from earlier molds.

Not included here are covered compotes (see Covered pieces).


Acanthus Leaf, Imperial - Imperial made Acanthus in several shapes. This pattern is different from Imperial's classic era Acanthus.

Innovation Compote, Fenton - This compote appeared in Fenton's 1986-87 catalog. Found in cobalt blue.

Christmas Compote, Fenton - Christmas Compotes were made from the original Dugan mold, first by Antique Publications and then by ICGA.

Double Dolphins, Fenton - The design dates to the original stretch era. Fenton then used the mold for it's contemporary Carnival and Stretch lines beginning in the 1970s.

Drape and Tie, Fenton - This squatty compote was made in amethyst by Fenton in 1977. It is rather similar to Millersburg's Rosalind compote. With the Fenton logo ground off, Drape and Tie could fool even a fairly experienced collector.

Fancy Flowers, Imperial - This squatty compote was made in amethyst by Fenton in 1977. It is rather similar to Millersburg's Rosalind compote, a much more valuable pattern. With the Fenton logo ground off, Drape and Tie could fool even a fairly experienced collector into thinking it's a classic Millersburg piece.

Grape Compote, Fenton - Fenton made this small compote in aqua opal. The Grape pattern is on the underside. The interior is plain.

Heart, Fenton - This unusual compote with the unique heart-shaped stem is Fenton's #9780. It first appears in "Fenton Glass, The 1980s Decade," in uniridized ruby glass (1989). The red iridized examples are listed in the 1990-91 Fenton catalogs.

Heavy Pineapple Compote, Fenton - Fenton also made a water set in this pattern.

Hobnail, Imperial - Note the similarity of the compotes to the bells. The compotes are much more scarce than the bells and only listed in amber.

Octagon, Imperial - The compote shown is about 5 inches tall (and sometimes ruffled) and found in cobalt (Aurora Jewels). There is another compote in this pattern, about 8 inches tall with a rounded base to the bowl. They are found in marigold, smoke, white, helios, and amber.

Pinwheel, Fenton - Fenton's pattern #8227. First shown in Fenton's January 1975 catalog in amethyst, then in the 1989 catalog in marigold on teal glass. Also found in blue and marigold. Bowls identified as this pattern would be by Smith.
