FENTON Vases – Part 7
Holzhauer catalog page - Imported Bottles and Shaving Paper Urns!
Courtesy Rick & Debbie Graham.
I was thinking about barber bottles and remembered something I saw in Keith E. Estep’s book THE SHAVING MUG & BARBER BOTTLE BOOK. On page 193 there is a reproduction of a page from the L. Holzhauer Sons Catalog of barber supplies. On a page entitled: Imported Bottles and Shaving Paper Urns is pictured what I believe to be a Fenton Diamond and Rib jardinière-straight sided. I guess the urns were used to hold paper used to wipe shaving cream and whiskers onto? …….Pretty pricey @ 90 cents each!......... Oh! What the heck. I’ll take a dozen!
Green DIAMOND & RIB Jardiniere-$3100.Seeck Auction-7-10.
The DIAMOND & RIB Jardiniere is as it came from the mould—not swung. On occasion, one may be slightly flared and ruffled, as seen here in the green example. These are known in Amethyst, green, and marigold. (Check into FENTON VASES – Part 2) for more on Jardiniere’s and Funerals in this pattern. This 5 ¼” base mold is the one used to make the funeral vases.

San Diego - Sou. Ca. Convention Souvenir-1998.
DIAMOND & RIB Vase: in iridized blue opal was produced as Souvenir for our March 1998 San Diego/Southern Calif. Combined Convention held in Ontario, CA. The vase is 6 ½” tall, has the 3 ¼” base and the oval Fenton trademark on the base. Etched into the base: SCCGCC & SCCG 1998. We had “arranged” for them, so Frank M. shipped them to our home in San Diego. What a treat to unpack and inspect all 200 of them—a half turn, if you will.

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away,
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left.
Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and the other left.
Watch therefore, for you do not know that hour your Lord is coming.
But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come,
he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
