Top Right: Marigold Australian Holly side view.
Australian Holly depicts a Holly like pattern on the interior, the exterior pattern is called Diamond Crown. It is an extremely hard bowl to find and even more difficult to find one with perfect feet as they are very prone to damage. Even if you find one with damaged feet they are definitely worth having.
It has only been found in Marigold

This could possibly be the only example of this pattern in a shape that could be considered a plate.
The edges of are just slightly turned up, although it does appear more curved in the picture than it does in reality.

This particular bowl had and unusual goldy bronze iridescence on the outside, but spectacular multi coloured iridescence inside.
The bullet edge treatment is more scarce than the picot edge, and its even harder to find them with the turned over top which is almost like a rose bowl shape.

Heavy Diamond bowls can be found in Marigold, Dark and this rare aqua colour.

These bowls are highly sought after, and extremely rare. They often have cracks around the base and they are particulary hard to see on the dark bowls. Even bowls that are cracked fetch a good price at auction.

Pinups bowls are found in marigold and dark carnival glass. The edges can be round, or ruffled and some bowls, like the one below have a curved top much like a rose bowl
There is also a small Pinups bowl which is a little smaller than a nappy bowl. I have also heard this pattern referred to as Hatpins.

This Star and Drape jug is up there in rarity with the Kiwi salad and master bowls. Very few are known in marigold, yet they can be found more often in flint glass.

Another scarce Crown Crystal pattern. The Star and Prisms bowl/comport is only found in marigold carnival glass, but does occur in other non-iridised colours. Some of these bowls have the interior patterns, and some have plain interiors. Some of the non-iridised pieces have a matching cover that sits on a ridge that runs around the inside rim.
