AMETHYST may be a common color in other patterns, but not in this Elegant Equestrian Design! Here you have a super chance to own a very Beautiful one...
It sure makes a heck of a statement on display just in terms of its sheer rarity alone! The iridescent properties are quite Beautiful as well. Exquisite Blue and Purple through the very, very elegant pattern details making it a pure pleasure to look at! The exterior of this one is extremely colorful as well featuring Dazzling Rainbow Multi-Color all the way around making the piece easy to display and ultimately attractive no matter then angle. Please see the photographs and enjoy...
I have showed as many angles and iridescent features as I can cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are shadows or reflections only. This is a Fantastic opportunity to own a truly beautiful specimen... Look it over and give it serious consideration.An Extremely Elusive, Deluxe piece of Antique Fenton Glass. Again there is no makers mark at all. It is antique Fenton at its VERY finest. Every bit as Elegant and Beautiful as the photos show. My photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight. I never use a flash or props. I never enhance photos, never have, never will. I aim to show you the best iridescent color the piece offers. If the piece looks awesome in the photos... What you see is what you will get! The piece is 7 3/8 inches wide at the widest point. It is 2 1/2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this EXTREMELY ELUSIVE, Visually Exquisite Antique Fenton Ruffled Bowl. A FABULOUS piece of this fine antique glass!
THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth. I can make out just very slight shelf wear on the on the bottom of the base which is very common for any piece of this fine Antique Glass... Certainly nothing uncommon at all on this Fantastic Gem. It sits flat and level on a flat surface.THE INTERIOR: The interior display surface of the piece is in great shape. If I look extremely close, I can make out teeny, tiny pin-head sized flecks of wear scattered on a few of the high points of the pattern details... Absolutely common to any piece of this fine old glass. The close up photographs clearly show the interior is in super shape... WELL above average for these. The iridescence throughout the interior surface of this Jewel is quite Rich featuring Exquisite Blues and Purples throughout the Elegant pattern details giving it Amazing overall eye appeal. These are extremely tough to come by, in AMETHYST, and especially this Beautiful in Excellent Shape! It is a TOP NOTCH, High Quality specimen in every regard... The shelf presence is simply SPECTACULAR just in sheer rarity alone... AND it is Beautiful too! A Superb piece of Antique Fenton Glass! THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear around the exterior at all which is extraordinary for this pattern and shape. The iridescence, throughout the exterior of this Fabulous piece is quite Rich and Absolutely Beautiful with Splendid Rainbow iridescence all the way around making it easy to display and ultimately attractive no matter the angle.
THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The ruffles are even all the way around.
The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. It shows great balance for these. The close up photographs clearly show that this Beautiful Gem has obviously been very well cared for over the last century... Absolutely kept as a show case piece without a doubt in my opinion.
Opportunities to own them, in AMETHYST base glass, are RARE!!! And especially with iridescence this Beautiful, in Great Shape. You'll be hard pressed to find another period, let alone one that can compare to this Jewel in iridescent beauty and condition!

I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating.There is nothing else like it in the world of antiques... The historical pieces I sell are part of our history, as a country, and made right here in the good ole' USA unless I state otherwise. They represent a time when America made things, great things... Before it was popular to sell this country out! The photographs say it all!
Nothing else needs to be done or said. I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer. True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks.
It was made a century ago and mass produced... Well before quality was an idea. Well before Cell Phones, Computers or any technology at all. It is hard for people to comprehend that today, but it is fact. The working conditions were unbearable by today's standards, yet the hard working American's of this era produced some of the most amazing items ever made.
Manufacturing marks within the glass are part of the charm of this period in time. If there is a manufacturing mark that is out of the ordinary... Such as excessive, contained, bubbles throughout the glass or a manufacturing heat check... Normal manufacturing marks such as straw marks, stretch marks, enclosed bubbles, light tool marks, though, will not be mentioned and should certainly be anticipated.Look over the many photos provided. If typical manufacturing marks bother you... Please ask questions up front!
I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can. It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. I highly recommend David Doty's Carnival Glass Website. I also find his Field Guides extremely helpful if you can find them, there are several. They are the best guide to learning patterns, especially the 2000 updated version.
I also recommend Edwards and Carwile's Carnival Glass Encyclopedia... There are several editions published. They cover the widest array of patterns of any guide I have seen and the text is excellent. There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations.I use premium ONE INCH bubble wrap (not the cheap 1/4 inch) and foam peanuts to package the pieces exclusively. I take great pride in packaging these wonderful pieces of history VERY well... Like they deserve to be packaged and I like them packaged for me. I never know how an item will sell. My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass... My feedback comments prove my diligence in that regard.
Running No Reserve Auctions do not always allow me to do that... For repeat buyers I certainly will! I don't advertise it... I just do it when I send the invoice. It is my way of saying THANK YOU!I run 7 to 10 day auctions with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed.
