For Sale I have a hard to find piece of carnival glass made by The Fenton Glass Company of Williamstown, West Virginia. The shape is a Banana Boat and the pattern is known as "Thistle". The piece measures 4 1/4" tall ,10 3/8" long and is 7 5/8" deep. The Thistle pattern actually has two different molds, one for Bowls and Plates and this one made exclusively for the Banana Boat. The Bowl depicts four clusters of flowers and thistle foliage with one leaf growing together in the center of the bowl. This Bowl has the Cattails and Waterlily pattern on the exterior which is also very ornate. The Bowl has 4 Ball feet to complete the look and is truly a show stopper. What a delight to have two very attractive patterns on one piece. The irridescence on this piece is spectacular as you can see hues of Deep Fuchsia, Blue, Gold, and Green on the Interior. There is also Iridescence on the Exterior with hues of Gold and Fuchsia. The Banana Boat is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. I also do not see any iridescence loss as it seems this piece was never used. The piece is unsigned but guaranteed to be Vintage Fenton. The Bowl was made Circa 1911.
