FENTON CRANBERRY GLASS Wheat Design with Three-Ring Neck and Crimped Ruffle Rim Circa 1960s
Wonderful vintage CRANBERRY GLASS VASE by the FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY in Country Cranberry.
The pattern design is called Wheat and the piece is made to resemble a tied shafts of wheat with three rings at the neck. The piece has the classic Fenton ruffled/crimped rim.
The vase is not marked which normally signifies its pre-1970s. The design, although not in Ruby Overlay or Country Cranberry is advertised in a 1961 Fenton catalog.
The vase is about 7 ½” tall and 5" wide at the largest point of the rim.
The piece is in excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs. Would be a perfect addition to a collector's Fenton art glass or cranberry glass collection.
Fenton Cranberry Glass
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.
