Jeannette Glass Company did not produce much stretch other than some very common "marigold" bowls. The most common one has a thick base and often has rich gold tones to the marigold. This bowl is often mistaken as an Imperial piece. Another common bowl is one with a molded base with three toes. They made a nearly identical bowl with a normal snap base. A somewhat less common marigold bowl is a very large, 12-inch diameter or larger piece with a small stuck-up (ground) base. A smaller bowl is also found that has three small spade-shaped feet.

Jeannette also made a footed bowl which has three rings on the foot. This bowl is the only one that comes in a multitude of colors. This same footed bowl is commonly found in shiny marigold and a tree-bark effect on the outside.

Two different marigold sandwich trays are also obtainable.
