An extremely beautiful example too for your consideration. FAR, FAR above average for the pattern, shape and base glass color. As the photographs clearly show, it is absolutely loaded with magnificent eye appeal featuring HOT PINKS all the way around and Super Rich Rainbow Multi-Color on the lid. The dazzling Hot Pinks combined with the dark base glass color give it that highly prized "PUMPKIN" visual effect.
Ultimately attractive from any angle. Extraordinarily pleasing to say the very least. It sure makes for a heck of a piece on exhibit. If you have been looking for one of these Gems, with a PUMPKIN MARIGOLD presentation, one with gorgeous visual characteristics all the way around, top and bottom, and awesome glistening properties...

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 or reflections only. This is a super opportunity to own an absolutely Fantastic piece! So beautiful, so elegant and darn difficult to find with iridescent characteristics this strikingly beautiful. Look it over and give it serious consideration. An absolutely phenomenal piece of Antique Fenton Glass.
Again there is no makers mark at all. It is antique Fenton at its finest. Every bit as Ultra Rich and Ultra 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 3 3/4 inches wide at the widest point. 3 1/8 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Super Rich and Extremely Colorful Antique Fenton Powder Jar. A Fabulous 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 this fine antique glass.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. It looks as if it has never been used for anything but display throughout its very long life. Certainly it does nothing but enhance a phenomenal overall presentation. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the exterior at all with is remarkable. All the way around the exterior, this Jewel features loads of HOT PINK...
Visually stunning and absolutely exceptional! The lid is the most colorful, richest lid I have ever seen, exhibiting Vivid, Rich Rainbow Multi-Color making it easy to display no matter the angle. In terms of its overall Magnificent iridescent beauty...The shelf presence is absolutely SPECTACULAR! A mighty impressive piece of Antique Fenton Glass! You will be hard pressed to EVER find a finer example in iridescent splendor or condition.
They didn't make them any finer! THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The lid and base fit together very nicely...
PHOTO 10 shows that there is a very tiny, very shallow flake in the inside edge of the lid... 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 and insignificant it is...
Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a strikingly gorgeous piece that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been extremely well taken care of over the last 100 years. If you know this glass well, and have handled enough of it, you know the lids on these Powder Jars always how some sort of roughness where glass meets glass over a century of time. The condition of the lid and rim of the jar on this beauty are FAR, FAR above average. As nice as you'll likely ever see.
It was absolutely kept as a show case piece without a doubt. Opportunities to own these with a PUMPKIN MARIGOLD presentation, strikingly beautiful, in this kind of condition, seldom EVER come along! A Spectacular piece of antique Fenton and a superb example of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this Vibrant, Ultra RICH and Exceptionally Colorful Antique Fenton Powder Jar. A very impressive example of this very elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and base glass color.If you have been searching for a stand out specimen in DARK MARIGOLD base glass... One with a PUMPKIN overall presentation via a combination of HOT PINK iridescence and DARK MARIGOLD base glass... Here is a fabulous example with Magnificent iridescent properties top and bottom! Talk about making a statement on display... Certainly its a piece that will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as Elegant and Strikingly 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. The item "Fenton ORANGE TREE CARNIVAL ART GLASS POWDER JARPUMPKIN MARIGOLDPHENOMENAL" is in sale since Monday, June 06, 2016.
