SUNFLOWER Pin Tray in AmethystSUNFLOWER Pin Tray-GreenSUNFLOWER Pintray in Marigold.
Sunflower Pin Trays in Amethyst, Green and Marigold.

SUNFLOWER Pin Tray:  Amethyst, green and marigold are known colors in this pin tray. Fenton is said to have produced a newer version to be aware of. We find it rather unusual that the pattern is not given much notice in Marie McGee’s Millersburg book. This Editor’s note is the only reference to the pattern that is offered: “One of the court-ordered inventories of the Millersburg plant in 1911 lists “Fish and Sunflower Pin Trays.” At that time the company had 160 dozen on hand. The wholesale price was $1.00 per dozen.

Roses and Fruit Bonbon in Green.

ROSES and FRUIT  Bon Bon:  The bowl measures 5” between its handles and stands 4” tall. The upper inside edge displays roses, rose buds and leaves. Center of the bowl has a pear, grapes, berries and some stippled leaves. The outside of the handles display stippled leaves. Amethyst, green and marigold examples are all rare. Only a couple of blue bonbons are known.

PERFECTION PITCHERS/TUMBLERS:  This is not only a rare water pitcher but is highly praised for its beauty, as well. The pitcher stands 9” tall, having an opening of 6” in diameter. Over a 12 year period, only a half dozen sales of the amethyst pitchers are recorded. Green is a very scarce color, as are the marigold pitchers. Tumblers in each of the colors are also very rare.

Dean & Diane Fry, 5-11

I said in my heart, “Come now, I will test you with mirth; therefore enjoy pleasure”;
But surely, this also was vanity.  I said of laughter---“Madness!” ; and of mirth,
“What does it accomplish?” I searched in my heart how to gratify my flesh with wine,
while guiding my heart with wisdom, and how to lay hold on folly,
till I might see what was good for the sons of men to do under heaven all the days of their lives.
I made my works great, I built myself houses, and planted myself vineyards…….
I acquired male and female servants, and had servants born in my house.
Yes, I had greater possessions of herds and flocks than all who were in Jerusalem before me.
I also gathered for myself silver and gold and the special treasures of kings and of the provinces….
So I became great and excelled more than all who were before me in Jerusalem.
Also my wisdom remained with me. Whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them.
I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, for my heart rejoiced in all my labor;
And this was my reward from all my labor.
Then I looked on all the works that my hands had done and on the labor in which I had toiled;
and indeed all was vanity and grasping for the wind. There was no profit under the sun.
(Ecclesiastes 2:1-11)
