Inspired by the success of Homer Laughlin's multi-colored ceramic fiesta-ware line, Max Verboeket designed the "Carnaval" range of colored glassware for the Dutch glass factory Maastricht in 1956.

Above is one of several package designs, created by Maastricht's in-house graphic designer Ger Huntjens for the "Carnaval" range; earning him the "Gouden Noot" award for best packaging of the year in 1958.

De Rupel (1925-1971) glassworks was located in the small town of Boom, Belgium. They began producing the "Arlecchino" line of colored glass fiesta-ware in response to the success of Maastricht's "Carnaval" line.
