If you have been looking for one, in GREEN base glass, in this highly prized shape and pattern, take a good look at this Grand Beauty. Please see the photographs and enjoy... I have showed as many angles and iridescent features as I can cram into 12 photographs.Dark areas in the photographs are shadows only. This is a very beautiful specimen, the iridescent splendor FAR above average for these and they are darn difficult to find. Look this Grand Beauty over and give it serious consideration. It's a superb opportunity to own an extremely elusive, Deluxe piece of Antique Fenton Glass. Again there is no makers mark at all. It is antique Fenton at its VERY finest. Every bit as Rich and 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.6 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS or REPAIRS on this Extremely Elusive, Strikingly Gorgeous Antique Fenton Loving Cup. An Bright, Shimmering piece of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth.
I can make out just very slight shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is very common for any piece of this fine antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this shimmering beauty! It sits flat and level on a flat surface.I can't make out any wear at all. Truly exceptional for this shape, pattern and this antique glass in general. The iridescent properties throughout the interior is exceptionally beautiful, even clear down in the very bottom. Certainly it does nothing but enhance a magnificent overall presentation. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the exterior at all with is remarkable. A Fabulous overall luster with vivid Rainbow Multi-Color highlights making the piece easy to display and ultimately attractive no matter the angle. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The handles are both well formed.
PHOTOS 10 and 11 show that next to one of the handles, there is a manufacturing heat check... Shown from the inside and outside. There is no appearance of damage of any kind, the piece sits today as it was made. If you know this glass and have handled enough of it, you know what I have photographed and described. Certainly is insignificant in regards to sheer visual appeal.
The teeth around the top edge have all been accounted for. You can clearly see in the close up photographs that this elegant beauty has obviously been very well cared for over the last century...Kept as a show case piece in my opinion. An exceptionally bright, beautiful and elegant piece of antique Fenton and a superb example of this century old glass.
That is all I can find on this Very Scarce, Absolutely Gorgeous Antique Fenton Loving Cup. A Fabulous example of this very elegant, highly desirable pattern, shape and extremely difficult to obtain base glass color. If you have been searching for a specimen with very pleasing iridescent splendor in excellent overall condition with glistening visual features...Here is an exceptionally beautiful specimen with superb shimmering qualities that stand out in a crowd. FAR above average for these. A Fantastic opportunity to own a Rich, Vibrant specimen... One that will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as Elegant and Attractive 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.
