FENTON – Part 38

Orange Tree Mug in Aqua Opal.

ORANGE TREE Mug:  Notice the straight sides on this “drinking mug”. The “shaving mug” is a bit wider and has a taper toward the top opening. The aqua-opal is extremely difficult to obtain when attempting to own all colors! Jim Seeck reported when listing this example for sale, that he once owned 16 different colors in this pattern, but was never able to acquire an A.O. example. ………..(Reportedly: Only two are known!). Another point to be touched upon: Aqua Opal is not always of the same tonal quality……….and neither is Peach Opal!.......The pastel tone in various patterns looks lovely when placing several patterns together for a display. When the “butterscotch” (bronze) is added to the mix, the change in tonal quality is quite noticeable.

PEBBLES:  If it is “rare and unusual” that you search for, here is a “find”!  5” bowls, having Honeycomb & Clover exterior are virtually unheard of! Green seems to be the color. Green bonbons in this pattern sold at auction in 2002 and another in 2005…….(for a pittance in both cases!) Bookers have a prize.

WATER LILY Sauce - (Ice Green):  This may well be the only known example in ice green. The only one listed on the Doty site sold in 2004 for $350!

WATER LILY Sauces:  (LGO & Amberina Opal): Existing rare colors in this pattern is proof of its desirability. 5”-6” sauces in such “exquisite” colors do not present themselves very often!

WATER LILY Master Bowl: Ice cream shape in any pattern is a desirable collecting element. To find an example in black amethyst usually creates a sensation among bidders at auctions. We have known a collector or two who “specialized” in that basic color………the late Roger Gladson was one such collector!

CUT OVALS Candlesticks: 1921 is the first date shown in the First Twenty-Five Years-Fenton Glass - by Wm. Heacock, displaying a 10” Jade Yellow having a matching centerpiece bowl. They were produced in iridized Ruby Red stretch and Wisteria in 1922. 8 ½” Celeste Blue were offered in 1923. Marigold, ice green and white are known colors, as well.
Fenton “Cut Ovals” display larger cuts with one on the candle cup and two (8”) or 3 (10”) ovals running together on the foot. The larger candleholders (#349-10”) have six cuts on the main shaft. The smaller (#449-8”) have 7 ovals
Beware: Some examples in this design apparently have been produced by other than Fenton Glass Co. The cuts are smaller, the number of cuts and clarity of such have a differing appearance from those produced by Fenton! Basically, Cut Ovals is the Florentine design candleholder. A half inch wide by four inches in diameter, fine-grit carborundum wet stone grinding wheel is used to create the cuts. ANY individual having that capacity could “create” a similar likeness of the factory examples.

Dean & Diane Fry,  Jan. 2014

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.
Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven
from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying,
 “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.
God Himself will be with them and be their God.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”
(Revelation 21:1-7)
In Revelation 21, we see the stunning fulfillment of God’s redemption of believers and the
restoration of heaven and earth.
The New Jerusalem demonstrates God’s faithfulness in keeping His promise to Abraham
 to inherit the land through his spiritual descendants. (Gen. 17:8).
Likewise, the former earthly tabernacle will be replaced with an indestructible one of glory (Zech.8:8).
Our hunger for an eternal home will be satisfied in the dwelling places that Christ has gone to prepare for us.
