I can't make out any shelf wear on the on the bottoms of the feet 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 Super overall shape. No wear at all which is extraordinary for the shape and pattern.
PHOTO 10 shows that on the interior top edge of one of the teeth... There is an extremely shallow, small flake, shown very clearly for you next to the end of a ball point pen for easy reference to any ball point pen in your home. You can clearly see how very small, shallow and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on an exceptionally gorgeous specimen that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years. Absolutely kept as a show case piece in my opinion.
The interior looks like it was never used for anything but display... Even though it is a century old! The iridescence throughout the interior surface of this Beauty is SUPER RICH in nature... Uncommonly nice for the pattern or any piece of Antique Fenton for that matter. Exceptional luster, very Vibrant featuring Exquisite Rainbow Multi-Color throughout giving it Magnificent eye appeal.Certainly the interior of this Grand Beauty does nothing but enhance the overall visual appeal of this Awesome specimen. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior of this fine piece which is exceptional for the shape and pattern.
The iridescence features Sultry Rich, Vibrant Rainbow Multi-Color all the way around making it a pure pleasure to look at no matter the angle. The overall luster is Fantastic!
You will look long and hard to find another one that can come anywhere close to comparing to this one in iridescent excellence and overall condition. A Tremendous piece of Antique Fenton Glass! THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done.
The ruffles are nice and even... The teeth around the top edge have all been accounted for.

It is every bit as Sultry Rich and Stunningly Beautiful as the photographs show! 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!
