Description & Notes: Offered is an early American Fenton Carnival Glass cobalt blue 7 piece water set in the scarce and desirable Fentonia pattern, highly iridized with a satin finish of deep purples, greens, yellows and golds, made circa. A celestial fantasy, the Fentonia pattern fills a field of central diamonds with alternating occurrences of woven constellations and scales; collectors sometimes refer to the radiating star constellation as embroidery stitch or hobnails. The mouth of the pitcher is a decorative scalloped sawtooth, complimenting the quilted and patterned body, with a large smooth upwards spout, the tumblers being left smooth in mouth for comfort of use.
Colour: The intricacies and nuances of Carnival Glass colours are many. The photographs have been taken with a white balanced camera using AIC standards in colour calibration on a calibrated monitor to display the subtlety of the shade as accurately as possible. Dimensions (pitcher): 9 1/8 high x 7 1/8 wide (at handle) Dimensions (tumbler): 4 high x 2 7/8 diameter. Markings: No visible markings; the pattern and form is well-documented. Condition: A period piece, it is offered in very good original condition.
For Accuracy Only: there are two minuscule fleabites, one on the pitcher at the very bottom of the diamond and the other on the lip of a single tumbler and a manufacturing wave on the lip of another tumbler. The colour is brilliant, the pattern crisp, and the presentation wonderful. All items are 100% Authentic.Layaway Now Offered: Ask about our flexible layaway plan! We have no control over this, sorry.
