Persian Medallion Pattern
PERSIAN MEDALLION Pattern
Mid-Spring 1911 Butler Bros. Wholesale Catalog
Persian Medallion held a prominent place among Fenton patterns. Appearing in Wholesale Catalog ads from Spring 1911 - July 1922 in various shapes, its “long-term acceptance” with the buying public requires no further acclimation.
Our photos are but a sampling of its fabulous color range and application. Not all shapes were offered in the wide variety of colors found in the bonbon/card tray shapes, but certainly, the pattern itself found favor closely relating to Grape and Cable, which everyone knows to be boundless in its marketing coverage.
Fenton #920 Grape and Cable orange bowl, circa 1911, offers Persian Medallion interior in the 10” wide and the more rare 11” wide bowl. Fenton #1049 Wreath of Roses Punch Set displayed Persian Medallion interior, and the Stream of Hearts compote has the Medallion pattern on the exterior.
The scarce, small size compote has the Wide Panel exterior. It is known in amethyst, blue, green, marigold and white.

PERSIAN MEDALLION 10 inch,

COMPOTE, large: Amethyst-(scarce), blue, green, marigold and white
HAIR RECEIVER: Basically the rose bowl shape having a square opening. This is the only known pattern in carnival glass with a “hair receiver” in production status. Blue, marigold and white.
ROSE BOWL: Has customary round opening. Amethyst, blue, marigold and white.
PLATE-about 9”: These are rare in any color. We display the exterior of one which came from the factory. Beware of some which left the factory as bowls and in after-market-alteration, they “became plates”. Look for discoloration, slightly scorched areas and spray which appears within the marie. These makeovers also have slightly “wavering” edges………vestiges of former bowl ruffles! Please bear in mind that TRUE FENTON FACTORY-MADE PLATES ARE OF THE FLAT VARIETY. It's Northwood who made the scooped plates.
Found in: Amethyst, blue, green, marigold and white
