HORSE MEDALLION:  “Pharaoh’s Horses”—The famous painting by John Frederick Herring is the basis for this design. It is also called Horsehead Medallion. A plate and round nut bowl. There are also collar-based bowls in this size. They can be ruffled, round, or ice cream shape. Plates are known in amethyst (2), blue, smoky blue, marigold and a couple of reported green examples.

9 in. Blue FEATHERED SERPENT IC shaped bowl.

FEATHERED SERPENT:  A scarce pattern found in 5” sauce and 9-10” bowls. They can be ruffled, ice cream shape or three-in-one. A green cuspidor, whimsied from the small bowl is known. The larger size is known in amethyst and has been found inserted in a metal bride’s basket. Blue examples are usually ice cream shape, green and marigold. The smaller sauces in amethyst and green can be found in a tri-corner shape.

Waterlily and Cattails bonbon - Marigold.

WATERLILY and CATTAILS Bonbon:  Little positive credit is given these items;  It actually appears to be a “re-shaped” spooner!! One seldom appears for sale, although the pattern (according to Frank M., himself), was the first pattern Fenton iridized! It had been a good seller during the period of clear glass use, so was assumed to be a worthy introduction into the new field of endeavor! Marigold is the only known color.
Try putting a table set together in this pattern! It is quite difficult and time consuming.

D/D Fry, 5/15

Beloved, I now write to you…that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets,
And of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days,
walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?
 For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation”….
But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise…..but is longsuffering toward us,
 not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise,
And the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore, since these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
Looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved,
being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
(2 Peter 3:1-13)
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.
And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need,
and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.
For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.
Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.
And whatever we ask we receive from Him,
 because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ
and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him.
And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
(1 John 3:16-24)
