Offering a beautiful Fenton Topaz Blue French Opalescent Coin Dot Basket with ruffled rim. Fenton product number #1437. Basket measures 7 1/2 inches tall and 7 inches wide from ruffle to ruffle. Featuring 3 rows of coin dots, small at base, medium to large. Light blue with creamy white throughout. Coin dots give an interesting magnification. This is original Fenton Art Glass circa 1947 – 1965. Please disregard the price on the sticker – the sticker was on the base at the time of my purchase and the information included in the sticker is from the previous owner, as found. Another beautiful cabinet piece!
Fenton glass was established in the USA in 1905 and over the past 113 years, this amazing company produced dozens of beautiful glass designs using a variety of colors and shapes. They survived the great depression and the second world war by producing practical, daily useful items such as glass kitchenware and glass bowls. Their history is long and their pieces highly collectible. It is a pleasure to offer you this beautiful piece of art glass history.
Condition, very good. Small spot of roughness where the handle joins the basket. Difficult to determine if it is a small crack or possible manufacture’s flaw at time the handle was applied.
