With the factories full of glass, they were eventually given away as prizes at carnivals and State Fairs. Carnival Glass is pure, classic Americana.

There are also "manufacture marks, " such as tooling marks, "straw" or "sheer" marks, mould imperfections, bubbles, etc. Tiny damage will normally be mentioned for accuracy, because if I can feel it, I will mention it.
