Absolutely beautiful to have in any home, with a style of glass crafting that has been heartwarming to those enjoying its ownership and safe keeping. The layered glass shows true splendor of vintage milk glass which has been kept for decades with little disturbance; 1950s to early 1970s.
Even the great depression of the 1930s had little effect on Milk glass production. In contrast to the many other glass manufacturers who were forced to close, lacking the creative atmosphere Fenton envisioned with this lavish form of glassware, people so admired.
About Fenton’s maker mark,
in 1970, Fenton added their logo to the bottom of some pieces to distinguish them from older pieces. In 1974, Fenton started putting their logo on all the pieces they made.
Another type of mark is found on Glass Baskets. Where the glass handles of the baskets are attached to the base of the basket a stamp is made. Each handler had a specific pattern to help identify which handler attached the handle. The marks began in the 1950s and were instituted by Frank M. and Bill Fenton.
Product Quantity: Only 1 item in stock.
Condition: Very Good and in perfect condition as would be new from the Fenton company. It does have an unfinished spot on one end of the handle that wasn’t polished and left slightly jagged. This isn’t uncommon with Fenton glass baskets (please read the above: 'About Fenton’s maker mark') since this is where they ‘marked’ the basket after the 1950s and prior to the 1970s.
