Fenton - Part 16
FENTON – Part 16

We must assume that this pattern was a prolific seller in any of its various shapes and color spectrum. It must have been produced over a long period of time. A sizeable collection could be accumulated by gathering all the known shapes and colors within the pattern; compotes, sauces, small plates, two-handled bonbons, 8”-9” bowls, a few very rare factory-made 9” plates in marigold,  interiors for a breakfast set (open sugar and creamer), ruffled hat shapes to include the souvenir “General Furniture Co., 1910” in green. Depending upon shape, Fenton catalogue numbers 407, 408 and 411 were used for description. The 6” blue sauce is found on occasion, lacking iridescence on the exterior and having silvery-type iridescence on the interior! A special customer order must have been placed for this particular finish? The pattern appears in Fenton’s 1911 catalogue as their #407. Amethyst, Blue, Green, and Marigold seem to be the standard colors, with Peach Opal, considerably more scarce. We cannot recall seeing any red or white examples in the pattern.

The Northwood version of this design is known as “Nippon”. Mrs. Hartung reports that the pattern was made by Imperial Glass Co. in 1910, appearing in their catalogue that year. In today’s world of collecting, we know of no iridized example from that company.

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, bring upon themselves swift destruction.  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; these with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever. For it after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.  But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb.  The dog is turned his own vomit again; and sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.  (2 Peter 2: 1, 15, 17, 20-22)
