Fenton Glass - Part 4
FENTON GLASS - Part 4

(To view other  examples of Butterfly & Berry , Captive Rose and  Sailboats,  please click onto the Alphabet letters B , C  and S to go to our Pattern List)

Butterfly and Berry has always been one of the most popular patterns from Fenton manufacture! Fantail, Hearts and Trees and Panther bowls all carry the Butterfly & Berry pattern on the exterior. In addition, there are whimsied  hatpin holders made from the tumbler, a three and one edge large berry bowl having no interior pattern, a hair receiver coerced into its cupped shape from a small berry bowl. Water and table sets, along with crimped top vases are known, as well.

Bowl in Marigold

BUTTERFLY & BERRY Fernery: In essence, this is the large 9?berry bowl which has been cupped in at the top, altering the schematics and the price! As a 搉ewbie?collector, attending an antique show in Mission Valley, during our early years in San Diego, the iridescence and allover pattern attracted me (Diane). Consulting my trusty price guide in hand, the asking price was that of a berry bowl, which I thought this was. The discount of 10% offered by the dealer made it even more attractive, so the lovely piece went home with me, later to discover the appropriate name to be 揻ernery? I had made a 揵uy?of nice proportions! Just how many blue examples like this one there might be is a good question. Consider them to be few and far between.
Loosely considered a whimsey, and by some who care to stretch results somewhat further, the cupped top edge creates a 搑osebowl? and any with sides 搒traight up?are referred to as a nutbowl. When the sides have a wider flare than the usual berry shape, then reference is made to a 揷enterpiece?bowl.

BUTTERFLY & BERRY Berry Dish (small):  This small example offers the usual flare considered to be the berry shape, both for this 5 ½?size, as well as the 9?bowl. These sets are to be found in amethyst, blue, green, and marigold, and an occasional white.
 
9 in. CAPTIVE ROSE Bowl in Marigold is scarce.

in White is scarce.

CAPTIVE ROSE 9?Bowl:  Believe it or not, marigold bowls in this pattern are scarce! Amethyst/purple, blue and green are somewhat easier to locate. The edge treatment can be ruffled, 3/1 or tight crimp. Collar-base handled bonbons are found in this pattern as well. Colors are amethyst, blue, green and marigold. 4-sides-up, or card tray shape are known.

CAPTIVE ROSE Compote: Ruffled or 3/1 edge is used with these pieces. Amethyst and green examples are fairly available, with marigold being scarce. Other colors to watch for: blue (the base glass can be quite light in color, while others are nearer cobalt). White examples, when you are fortunate to locate one can be quite frosty and have colorful iridescence.

FEATHERED SERPENT: This pattern is a scarce one in any color, but particularly so in marigold!  9?10?and 5?small berry bowls with either ruffled , ice cream shape, or  3/1 edge, along with some tri-corner shapes in the small size can be found. Standard colors are amethyst, blue, green and marigold.
A green cuspidor whimsied  from one of the small bowls is known.     

HONEYCOMB & CLOVER: Bowl -9?10? This attractive exterior design is found on some Feathered Serpent bowls.

9 inch Marigold Bowl.

HONEYCOMB & CLOVER Spooner: found in marigold, with no other accompanying table set pieces yet found. This pattern would have made a very attractive complete table set, would it not?  A very likely assumption leads us to believe  that  this spooner  is the source for creating the bon-bons found in this pattern.

COIN DOT in Marigold.

FEATHERSTITCH Bowl: Perhaps a glorified example of the Fenton Coin Dot bowls, but these 8 ½-9?examples are pretty scarce in any color. Marigold is usually nicely iridized, but the darker amethyst, blue and green examples many times have a somewhat silvery overcast. Aqua is another listed color. A marigold plate of 9 ¼?is known. Ruffled and ice cream shaped bowls and that plate comprise the shapes this pattern is found on.

COIN DOT Bowl: One of these bowls in red will turn a lot of heads in an auction, bringing several thousand dollars, but the readily found pattern in 7? 9 1/4?size bowls in colors of amethyst, blue, green, marigold and vaseline bring little attention and many fewer dollars outlay. Even the rosebowl shapes in sizes, 6?7?or the smaller size of  5? which is seldom seen, sell quite reasonably. A lime green rose bowl which is probably an interpretation of vaseline, along with a 6?amethyst plate cast a little more interest.

SAILBOATS Goblet
in Blue

SAILBOATS Wine: Known in blue and marigold, there is no accompanying pitcher/decanter to match. The stem and foot offer a distinctive stippled/swirl effect. Some examples of carnival glass are curious items. This is within that category. A pitcher would have been a nice addition.

SAILBOATS Water Goblet: Known in blue and marigold, this is essentially the wine shape with a flare in the top edge.
Compotes (from the same mold) are known in the same two colors. Of course their stem/foot and top is somewhat larger and the top is usually ruffled. The interior is plain.
