FENTON - Part 37
1910 -1911 Butler Brothers Catalog.
MINIATURE BLACKBERRY Compote in Green!
MIN. BLACKBERRY Compote & Plate in Blue. - 4.5 in. diam. x 2.15 in. high.
Absentee Min. BLACKBERRY Compote & one with BLACKBERRY display.
BLACKBERRY Miniature Compote: The most unusual example shown here is the Absentee Blackberry. Somehow it was passed up for application of the interior mold! These tiny compotes are 4 ¼” in diameter and are 2 ½” high. The plate shape is only found in blue, but there are more blue compote shapes than other colors. Amethyst and white are very rare colors. (One is known having an ORCHID tint.) Check our A STEP AWAY FROM THE USUAL and FENTON - Part 2 segments for additional colors.
Little Flowers - 5 inch - Marigold.
LITTLE FLOWERS: This 4-sided sauce is a different shape from others you will find in our pattern list. We think you will agree that this 5” rendition is most interesting. It might prove difficult to locate a grouping of half dozen like this. The 5” size is also found in Aqua, blue, green and amethyst. The square shape is known only in marigold.
Amber HEAVY PINEAPPLE 11 inch bowl.

HEAVY PINEAPPLE: A scarce pattern which has surfaced more often in marigold than the other known colors of amber, blue and white. There is one known rose bowl shape in blue, but the bowls can be of varying shapes from ruffled, round, or ice cream shape to flared open, such as seen with the white example. It is the only known bowl in white, as is the amber ice cream shape. One of the known blue bowls is also in ice cream shape. Larry Yung says the white bowl is 13” wide x 4 ½” high and has a 4 ¼” base (marie). The amber bowl is 11” in diameter. The bowl sits on 3 curled feet. The white bowl has been on the carnival glass scene since at least 1991. As compared with most patterns, this would be classified as “especially rare”! You can read more about this pattern and view nice blue and marigold examples by clicking into our FENTON – PART 17.
June 1916 Butler Bros. Catalog.
POND LILY - Persian Blue. The Celeste example sold for $5750-Seeck Auctions.
POND LILY Bonbon or Card Tray (two-sides up) : The lilies are surrounded by a familiar Fenton design called Scales. The exterior has no pattern. While there is good variety in the color range, these pieces are not seen as often as other Fenton patterns, since the design only appears on these handled objects. Amethyst, Blue, Persian Blue, Celeste Blue (2 reported), Green, Ice Green, Lavender, Marigold, Peach Opal (1 known), Vaseline, and White offer extensive color range, although very few examples present themselves in the course of a year.
Hearts and Trees bowl - green.

HEARTS & TREES Bowl: This is a prime example of how reports can conflict over time. In our FENTON – Part 5, a bowl like this one is pictured. Some years later, the bowl is found in someone else’s collection. We know Bernie and Nancy May sold their collection sometime ago. Buddy Biaird also reported one. Whether or not this example could be one of those, creates confusion. There may, in fact be 3 green bowls in the IC shape? The majority of the bowls in this pattern are marigold.
Amethyst 9 in. FEATHER STITCH Bowl.
FEATHER STITCH in Green.
FEATHER STITCH: Only a step away from the Coin Dot pattern, found in bowl shapes only, sizes range from 8 ½” – 10”, depending upon the flare of the ruffling. Some are six-ruffle. More unusual are those with 3/1 edge. Colors known: marigold, blue, green and amethyst.
Amethsyt Captive Rose 9 inch plate.
CAPTIVE ROSE Plate: The 10 roses reflect hand-stitched lace work. There are occasional 9” plates, handled bon-bons, bowls and stemmed compotes. Bon-bon: Amethyst, blue, green and marigold, 8”-9” Bowls can be ruffled, ice cream shape, CRE, or 3/1 in amethyst, blue, green, lavender, marigold or white. Compote: Amethyst, blue, green, marigold, white. Plate: Amethyst, blue, green, marigold.
