Fenton Water Sets - Part 3
FENTON WATER SETS - Part 3
WINE & ROSES Cider Set: Quite a rare set in any of the known colors. 1918 and 1922 Butler Brothers wholesale catalog ads indicate the pattern was produced rather late in the carnival glass era. Perhaps production runs were not extensive. Marigold, blue and vaseline examples have been confirmed. The pitcher is 8 ½” high.
PANELED DANDELION: Six panels filled with columns of flowers surround this impressive tankard and the tumblers to match. Amethyst, Blue, marigold and green sets are the extent of the color range within the pattern. In most cases, the handles are set against one of the panels, but there is one green and one marigold tankard known to have handles which have been mounted on the seam line. The green one sold for more than $900 in the late `90s.
TEN MUMS: This Fenton set sporting twelve Chrysanthemums on the tankard, and each tumbler, is quite an impressive set and is more difficult to locate than some. The colors are limited. Blue, marigold, and very rare white are to be selected from. When we came into collecting carnival glass, we heard stories about the competitive bidding for water sets as long ago as the `60s. From some of the longtime collections being sold during the past three years, have come some huge prices for sets which do not surface very often. A 7 pc. set in blue having exceptional quality was purchased for $1300 at the 2004 HOACGA Convention auction, along with a marigold tankard in the Mums pattern, which brought $425.
