ENGRAVED GRAPE Tankard: This is part of the Fenton #3600 pattern. It stands 10 ½” tall and has no markings on the base, which is typical of Fenton items.
ETCHED GRAPE Tumblers:  These are 5” tall. Each tumbler has a mark: “1409”. Directly underneath is a “Triangle”. Underneath the Triangle, each has a different number: 28, 8, 24, and 23. The tumblers have a starred base with the marks and designations centered within the rays. Since the tumblers did not come with the tankard and are obviously from a different manufacturer, we would appreciate hearing from anyone who can identify their origin! (Jerry and Carol Curtis)

Only known A.O. HOLLY bowl. Seeck Auction.

HOLLY Bowl:  The base color came toward the end of the iridized glassware era. Popular as it was, and still is, one would be inclined to ask: “Why is this the only one known?” The Holly pattern was certainly an acceptable one in all other colors! Perhaps the sample bowl was given to a salesman who had not had much luck in selling that color, hoping the pattern alone would create interest?

HOLLY Bowl:  Whether ruffled, round, or ice cream shaped, Holly bowls in this color are quite rare! Considering the vast number of auctions, the opportunity to purchase one in this color combination does not occur often.

IG ORANGE TREE w. trunk 9 in. Seeck Auctions
IG ORANGE TREE with trunk - 9 inch - Seeck Auctions.

ORANGE TREE Plate: The tree trunk addition to the basic pattern is always more desirable to collectors. Not more than 3 or 4 are known in ice green. One sold for $16,000 in the mid-nineties.

Green BLACKBERRY BLOCK Tankard & Tumbler. Seeck Auctions.

BLACKBERRY BLOCK:  Blue is the “common color” in this pattern, with amethyst, marigold and green fairly scarce. There is a known white tumbler in the pattern.

10 in. HOBNAIL VARIANT Vase-Marigold
10 inch HOBNAIL VARIANT Vase - Marigold.

HEAVY HOBNAIL vase: If you click into our pattern alphabet and from the H, locate Heavy Hobnail, you will be taken to Fenton Vases Part 4 and can have a look at a lovely green example.
These are so scarce that auctioneers error in naming them. Our 10 ¼” amethyst example was purchased under the Rustic listing. These have a 4 ½”-4 ½” base and are known in amethyst, blue, green, marigold and white.
The marigold example shown here was listed by one of our leading carnival glass auctioneers as Rustic!
For further details surrounding this rare vase, click into our HOBNAIL VARIANT segment and read the details presented by the late Frank M. Fenton, regarding this vase.

 D/D Fry, 8/5/15

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying,
“Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying,
‘I am the Christ’, and will deceive many.  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.
See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.
And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.
And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations,
And then the end will come.”
(Matthew 24:3-14)
