FENTON, GRAPE AND CABLE, AMETHYST RUFFLED BOWL, BALL FEET
For Auction is a Beautiful piece of Carnival Glass made by the Fenton Glass Company of Williamstown, West Virginia. The pattern is known as "Grape and Cable" and the shape is a Ruffled Bowl. The Bowl measures 3 1/2" tall and is 7 7/8" in diameter.
The Bowl depicts plump clusters of Grapes with stippled leaves hanging from a vine that appears to be growing on a detailed cable. This pattern is very similar to Northwood's Grape and Cable however the Fenton Pattern is much more bold. The bowl has a ruffled and saw tooth edge that makes it confusing to newer collectors. There are three smooth ball feet to give this beauty some added height and a smooth exterior. The color of this gem is Amethyst and there is iridescence on the interior and exterior. You can see hues of Blue, Gold, Purple, Green and Fuchsia with no loss to the iridescence that I can see.
The Bowl is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. The piece is unsigned but guaranteed to be Vintage Fenton.
