TEN MUMS - 10 1/2 inch bowl
having tight CRE resulting in
8.50 diam. and 3 in. deep.
in the TEN MUMS Bowl.

TEN MUMS:  is one of the most desirable patterns from Fenton. Water sets in blue, marigold, and a very rare white are known. No plates are known in this lovely pattern. These large bowls should  not be considered plentiful. The 10-10 1/2” collar-base bowls, may be ruffled, have a tight Candy Ribbon Edge, or the three and one edge crimp. Amethyst, blue, sometimes (electric), green, and marigold are the colors.
The CRE example we show here could be termed “electric”, but more importantly, the base glass color is considered to be emerald green. The bright iridescence highlighted with blue enhances the emerald green base glass.  Fenton green is difficult to surpass for sheer beauty, and in many cases, somewhat scarce in certain  patterns.
You can see that the exterior is not patterned. Ten Mums is a prime example of the skill executed by the mold-makers. While both the bowls and the water sets are named the same, there are ten chrysanthemums in the bowl pattern, and twelve used on the tankards/tumbler. Design must accommodate the space to be covered. It is as simple as that.
BLACKBERRY BANDED-Moonstone. Very Scarce.
BLACKBERRY BANDED - Moonstone. Very Scarce.

BLACKBERRY BANDED: The design is exclusive to this hat shape. The vertical lines separate it from another hat shape in Blackberry Spray.
Found ruffled, blue, marigold, marigold over moonstone, red and white are the colors found. The exterior is smooth. The ruffled edge is normally found on these hats.
Green CORAL Bowl-IC Shape-9 in. (Strawmark)
CORAL Bowl-8.5 Mgld.
Green CORAL Bowl -
IC Shape - 9 in. (Strawmark)
CORAL Bowl - 8.5 Mgld.

CORAL: This 9” bowl found in green ice cream shape is an unusual experience. We thought viewers would enjoy seeing it. Coral in the more familiar marigold ruffled shape can be located by clicking on ~~ C ~~ in our pattern alphabet.
A Coral bowl having three and one edge is possibly more rare than a Coral plate.

HOLLY HAT: No doubt about Holly being a tremendous seller! Was it the Christmas theme it carries, or the fact that the pattern lends itself to display quite well? In any case, Holly was quite popular. The variety of colors and shapes induces entire collections to be built around this singular pattern! The hat shape can be found with a crimped or ruffled edge, two sides up, jack in the pulpit or squarish (four sided).
Colors: Amber, amberina, amethyst opal, aqua, aqua opal, blue, smoky blue, lavender opal, marigold, marigold over moonstone, red, vaseline, and lime green.

Dean & Diane Fry - 05/08


A “parable” has been described as “an earthly story with a heavenly meaning.”
This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. ~~ Psalm 118: 24
When dawn announced each new day,
Before you rise up out of bed,
Rejoice…….be glad and give God praise,
And thank Him for what lies ahead.
