FINE RIB:  Quite possibly the most available vase pattern among the Fenton line of vases, we offer viewers some choice colors.
Standard size base diameter is 2 ½”-2 ¾”, a large standard size is 3”. A midsize is 3 ¾”. Heights vary between 8” and 17”. The standard size has been found in about 20 color variations. The midsize is known in blue, marigold and vaseline.

BOGGY BAYOU:  Eight loops within each panel and the broad base this vase sits upon  designates it as different from Dugan’s Pulled Loop, which has only five loops. The short, squat vases are found in green, lime green opal, lime/marigold and marigold. 7”-11” vases are found in amethyst, green and marigold. Many fewer Boggy Bayou are to be found than some of the other Fenton vases. A nice lime green opal squat vase has been known to sell in the thousand dollar range.

A RUSTIC -Type with 10 flutes.

RUSTIC-Type Vase:  Let’s just call this a “maverick”! When Bob Mason of KY contacted us in April 2009 for identification, we were immediately curious about the 10 flutes and the absence of 18 hobs around the base of what is known as the RUSTIC VARIANT. The variant has 9 flutes. Both versions have a 4 1/8” base with no design on the base. Both offer a 3-part mold. This marigold example is 16” tall and 7 “swung” rows.  Should any of our viewers have a vase such as this one, we would appreciate hearing from you. Should we call it Rustic Variant #2?

Dean and Diane Fry - 09-2010
Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
Remember the prisoners as if chained with them---those who are mistreated-------since you yourselves are in the body also.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have.
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”. So we may boldly say:
“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:1-6)
