Known for its beautiful colors and patterns, Fenton Art Glass continues an American tradition with its skilled glass workers and talented decorators. This fabulous bowl is finely crafted and detailed.
This pre-logo circa 1911 bowl is unmarked (as Fenton collectors know pieces of this era weren't marked). The piece features the fabulous and sought-after tightly crimped "candy rib edge" (CRE) that collectors just love. The bowl features a rich, deep, peacock cobalt blue ground with "oil-slick" satin sheen.The eye-shocking iridescent finish features edge to edge multi colors of blues, purples, aquas, magentas, steely-lavenders, greens, old gold, etc. The fabulous and mesmerizing iridescence glows and changes colors as the bowl is viewed from different angles. The center of the bowl is accented by the textured "embroidered" look Captive Rose geometrical pattern. The multi-layered design includes a center rose interspersed with geometrical borders and terminating with a large border of blooming captive roses.
"Captive Rose" bowls are some of the most lovely pieces of Fenton carnival glass; the iridescence never fails to please the eye. Bowl presents beautifully and is in excellent antique condition, with very minimal display wear and patina commensurate with age. Upon magnified inspection we found a microscopic (and hard to see with the naked eye) manufacturing flaw to the edge of one ruffle if we didn't mention it you'd likely never find it. This gorgeous Captive Rose bowl will make an outstanding addition to any fine and well curated art glass collection and or a dazzling gift for that lover of rare and stunning Fenton art glass...
