FENTON CRANBERRY GLASS Footed Claret Jug with Fancy Applied Reed Design Handle Circa 1990s
This offering is for a beautiful piece of vintage hand blown cranberry glass by the FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY. The circa 1990s piece is in the shape of a CLARET JUG or pitcher.
The cranberry glass claret jug is absolutely gorgeous with simple clean lines. The design is a ribbed or wide striped optic stripe with a slight swirl. The curved handle is clear glass in the reed pattern. The reeds are distinctive and spaced close together so the light shows through.
Including the handle, it stands about 10" tall and has a pedestal base a little over 3 ¼” in diameter. The height of the pitcher not including the handle is 9". The Fenton logo mark and the number 9 is embossed on the bottom of the jug. The piece is in excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs.
Would be a perfect addition to a collector's Fenton or cranberry glass collection.
Fenton Cranberry Glass: All Fenton Cranberry pieces contain pure gold. It is the gold that reacts to the extreme heat to form the beautiful cranberry color. All Fenton cranberry glass is blown by mouth and not pressed. In some cases, a piece can take up to 25 glassworkers to produce. The making of cranberry glass is more than the art of blowing glass--the glassworkers must have the knowledge to craft the special gold chloride formula that is added to the molten glass.
