FENTON CRANBERRY ART GLASS Two-Ring Vase with Ruffled Edge in Ruby Overlay & Polka Dot Pattern Circa 1950s
Wonderful vintage TWO-RING VASE by the FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY.
The pattern is POLKA DOT in Ruby Overlay; ware number 2456 RO. The vase design was released in polka dot/ruby overlay in 1956 and discontinued in 1969. The piece is advertised in the January 1965 catalog as a 6" vase although it is not quite that tall. However, hand blown glass is not always exact in size.
The beautiful vase is covered with small dots and has the Fenton signature ruffled rim and double rings on the neck. It stands a little over 5 ½” tall and is not marked on the bottom signifying its pre-1970s.
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: 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.
