Carnival Glass Vase - Panji Peacock

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Vintage carnival glass vase manufactured in India in the 1930's by the Jain Glass company with the bulbous design in the "Panji Peacock" pattern (also known as Panji Peacock Eye) in Marigold.

Glen & Stephen Thistlewood, authors of A Century of Carnival Glass, at p. 179, write that "bulbous" or tear-shaped vases represent a category of Indian carnival vases that are made of thick glass and feature ribbed necks and ruffled tops.

Many collectors of carnival glass are unaware that carnival glass was made in India, and many pieces have become quite rare.

The Jain Glass Works was founded in 1928, in the northern Indian town of Firozabad. The first pieces of irridized carnival glass were made in 1935.

Information on Indian glassworks is hard to find and a lack of historical documents makes attribution very difficult. Some are marked: Jain ("JAIN"), Paliwal Glass Works ("PGW"), CB and AVM marked some, but not all of their production.

7" high, mouth 3 1/4", base 3"

Excellent condition w/o chips/cracks.

The listing was grossly misleading. There was no mention of the loose, wobbly base, second hole where the arm had been reattached, and missing red paint on the hat. In fact, when I re-examined the photos, these details seem intentionally missed altogether! The photos show a nutcracker soldier in Excellent condition. On a scale of Poor-Mint Condition, this one ranks Good/Okay, but certainly NOT Excellent.
It is an antique after all, so I'm giving it as a gift to my sister-in-law as is, but I feel that I paid for an Excellent condition antique and received a lesser condition.

Hope, I’m sorry that you are unhappy with your purchase. If you had contacted us privately we would have been more than willing to have the item returned for a full refund. As to its condition, it was gifted to me by a family member who purchased it new many years ago, and has been displayed on a wall shelf, solidly standing without any wobbles. If it had been previously repaired, it was unknown to me and not visible during our inspection. I will agree that it had a very minor loss of red paint in one area on top of the hat. Again, sorry that it did not meet your expectations.
