The plate shown above is marigold on a pale blue base glass.
It was found by Cláudio Deveikis in the south of Brazil, in a region named Paraná which borders
with Argentina, and was a double first: the first time that a Daisy and Scroll plate has been
reported, and the first report of the pattern in this pale blue base glass. Subsequently, Cláudio
reported several more shapes in this same pale blue, as shown below - a large shallow bowl (top
right), a large deep bowl (centre) and four smaller bowls.

Previously, Daisy and Scroll
had only been reported in the shapes of decanter and shot glass, in both (cobalt) blue and
Although a Daisy and Scroll decanter,
shot glasses and tray
are illustrated in the Hortensja catalogues ( Poland), there are some pattern and shape
differences between the illustrations depicted in the catalogue and the Carnival items that
have been reported in this pattern. In particular, the
shot glasses are entirely different in shape.
Circumstantial evidence currently suggests
that Daisy and Scroll Carnival items were probably made in South America (most likely Argentina), and all
examples that we are aware of have been found there. Carnival from Poland is
not currently known in deep cobalt blue,
but blue Carnival from South America is
very familiar. That observation, coupled with the
location of all currently reported "finds" that we are aware of, plus the significant differences in the Hortensja catalogue
illustrations of the shot glasses, lead us to
believe that this lovely plate (and the other known Carnival shapes in the pattern)
were probably made in South
feature on Garland and Bows to find out more about the links between
Poland and South America.
Sincere thanks to Cláudio Deveikis for the photos and the report of
this fascinating discovery: tempoguaranaderolha.blogspot.com.br
