These rare Advertising Pieces seldom ever come along for sale and the iridescence on this one is truly extraordinary. Not only is it exceptionally colorful throughout, but it exhibits wonderful "STRETCHY VISUAL EFFECTS" as is easily seen in PHOTOS 7 & 8.

This is a Fantastic opportunity. Look it over and give it serious consideration. It's a superb opportunity to own a truly elusive, Deluxe piece of Antique Fenton Advertising Glass. Again there is no makers mark at all. It is antique Fenton at its VERY finest. Every bit as Rich and Ultimately Beautiful as the photos show. My photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight. I never use a flash or props. I never enhance photos, never have, never will. I aim to show you the best iridescent color the piece offers. If the piece looks awesome in the photos... What you see is what you will get! The piece is 6 inches wide at the widest point. 1 1/4 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Very Elusive, Visually Exquisite Antique Fenton ADVERTISING PLATE. An exceptionally Colorful, Gorgeous piece of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth.
I can't make out any shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary for any piece of this fine antique glass. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. I can't make out any wear at all. PHOTO 10 shows that on the fine details of one of the flowers, there is a teeny tiny, pen head sized spot of roughness, shown very clearly for you next to the end of a ball point pen for easy reference to any ball point pen in your home.
You can clearly see how very tiny it is. In my opinion, it is a teeny spot of manufacturing mold roughness.Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a RARE piece with truly exceptional iridescent qualities throughout the entire display surface. Just try finding another one at all, let alone another one with iridescent splendor and overall visual characteristics anywhere close to this one! It is exceptionally colorful and features Vibrant Rainbow Multi-Color side to side giving the piece PREMIUM, High Quality display properties. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the exterior at all with is remarkable. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done.
The plate is nice and flat for these... The small scallops around the outside edge have all been accounted for. You can clearly see in the close up photographs that this elegant advertising plate has obviously been exceptionally well cared for over the last century... Kept as a show case piece without a doubt!They rarely ever come along for sale and this one is an exceptionally gorgeous example.

This is a PREMIUM, TOP SHELF specimen for your consideration. A Fantastic opportunity to own one of these elusive beauties. A piece few others have certainly...
But very, very few others have one that will come anywhere close to comparing to this one in iridescent splendor and condition! It is a piece will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value.It is every bit as Elegant and Gorgeous as the photographs show! I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating. There is nothing else like it in the world of antiques... The historical pieces I sell are part of our history, as a country, and made right here in the good ole' USA unless I state otherwise. They represent a time when America made things, great things... Before it was popular to sell this country out! The photographs say it all! Nothing else needs to be done or said. I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer. True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks. It was made a century ago and mass produced...
Well before quality was an idea. Well before Cell Phones, Computers or any technology at all.It is hard for people to comprehend that today, but it is fact. The working conditions were unbearable by today's standards, yet the hard working American's of this era produced some of the most amazing items ever made. Manufacturing marks within the glass are part of the charm of this period in time.
If there is a manufacturing mark that is out of the ordinary... Such as excessive, contained, bubbles throughout the glass or a manufacturing heat check... Normal manufacturing marks such as straw marks, stretch marks, enclosed bubbles, light tool marks, though, will not be mentioned and should certainly be anticipated. Look over the many photos provided. If typical manufacturing marks bother you...Please ask questions up front! I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can. It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. I highly recommend David Doty's Carnival Glass Website. I also find his Field Guides extremely helpful if you can find them, there are several. They are the best guide to learning patterns, especially the 2000 updated version. I also recommend Edwards and Carwile's Carnival Glass Encyclopedia... There are several editions published. They cover the widest array of patterns of any guide I have seen and the text is excellent. There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations. I use premium ONE INCH bubble wrap (not the cheap 1/4 inch) and foam peanuts to package the pieces exclusively. I take great pride in packaging these wonderful pieces of history VERY well... Like they deserve to be packaged and I like them packaged for me. I never know how an item will sell. My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass... My feedback comments prove my diligence in that regard.
Running No Reserve Auctions do not always allow me to do that... For repeat buyers I certainly will! I don't advertise it... I just do it when I send the invoice.It is my way of saying THANK YOU! I run 7 to 10 day auctions with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed.
