This glass was produced a century ago in less than clean environments before Quality Control existed.
It was cut with cold shears often producing what is commonly referred to as "straw marks". It was then hand pressed into moulds that did eventually wear out, thus lessening detail. Finally, it was hand-sprayed with metallic salts and sometimes refired for effect. Edge treatments such as ruffles, candy ribbon, pie crust or 3-in-1 were all hand shaped with various tools which often left tool marks.These manufacturing imperfections are commonplace in antique carnival glass.
