This is an UNMARKED Antique Fenton KITTENS Cereal Bowl or Ice Cream Shaped Bowl made in the early 1900's. The base glass color is MARIGOLD!
This piece has NO makers mark! This is no reproduction piece. This prized, playful pattern seldom comes along for sale in the "CEREAL BOWL" shape and especially with iridescence this Beautiful. The photographs clearly show how lovely this piece is.
The iridescence is Pastel in nature... Soft, yet the overall luster is very attractive giving the piece wonderful eye appeal! The beautiful visual characteristics make this Gem a pleasure to look at. If you have been looking for a great example in this elusive shape, in MARIGOLD base glass...
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 splendid specimen in MARIGOLD base glass.
Look it over and give it serious consideration. A truly elusive, very attractive piece of Antique Fenton Glass. Again there is no makers mark at all. It is antique Fenton at its 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 3 inches wide at the widest point. 1 1/2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this ELUSIVE, Visually Exquisite Antique Fenton Cereal Bowl.
An Outstanding piece of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth. I can't make out any shelf wear on the on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary for any piece of this fine Antique Glass.
It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: The interior display surface of the piece is in great shape. I believe the photographs show the interior display surface is quite nice.
The iridescence down in the very bottom is light, but not consistent with wear at all and certainly the high points don't show any. The piece was just made that way. The iridescence throughout the display surface is exceptionally beautiful. Pastel in nature, soft, yet quite RICH with pleasing overall luster giving the piece splendid eye appeal!
These prized pieces are darn difficult to come by in this shape and especially with overall visual properties this wonderful. A Fabulous piece of Antique Fenton Glass!
THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear at all around the exterior which is extraordinary for any piece of this fine old glass. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done.
The bowl is drawn up into the cereal bowl shape very nicely... The close up photographs clearly show that this Gorgeous Gem has obviously been exceptionally well cared for over the last century...
Absolutely kept as a show case in my opinion. Opportunities to own them, in this shape, with iridescent features this beautiful, in this kind of condition, seldom every come along. You'll be hard pressed to find a finer one in iridescent beauty and condition!An exceptionally attractive piece of antique Fenton and a superb example of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this SCARCE, Beautiful Antique Fenton Cereal Bowl. A very attractive example of this highly prized, playful pattern, difficult to obtain shape and base glass color. If you have been searching for an exceptionally beautiful specimen, in MARIGOLD base glass...

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.
