Rare C. 1920 Fenton West Virginia, Mosaic Art Glass Vase Footed Baluster Form For Sale
Rare c. 1920 FENTON West Virginia, Mosaic ART GLASS Vase Footed Baluster Form
PLEASE READ "TERMS OF SALE" BEFORE offerDING
Circa: 1915, Williamstown, West Virginia.
Incredible Fenton Mosaic Art Glass footed vase on a liquid blue ground color glass. Unconditionally guaranteed with full money back privileges including return shipping if not authentic Fenton "Mosaic" art glass. This tooted baluster form vase was manufactured by the Fenton, in the Wheeling, West Virginia factory around the turn of the20thCentury. In terms of production numbers of art glass by others operating in the late 1800's and early 1900's, e.g. Tiffany, Steuben,Quezal,Durand, etc. this design of glass in comparison to those made by their contemporaries, is considered rare. Production of this type glass by Fenton was quite low, and while they occasionally come to market, glass by other makers are much more prevalent and numerous. This type of glass might be considered in terms of rarity, along the same lines as Steuben's "Tyrian" line, albeit not nearly as costly.
Stunning peacock blue with a stunning onion skin affect on the inside of itsevertedrim. The foot has bold Saturn like rings in peacock blue and purple. The neck has elongated tear drop like drops of Mosaic pattern. The vase has some interesting similarities to Tiffany's "Cypriot" glass. It has some of the lava similarities like Tiffany's Cypriot pieces, with craters and globular affects that sort of look like the Moon's surface. Subtle, but noticeable. Whether this was intentional or not, I cannot say. I have seen perhaps 8-10 of the Mosaic vases and bowls, but this is the first having these characteristics. I find it very interesting and unique, much more so than their typical Mosaic patterns. Not only does it have the Cypriot characteristics, but it also has the swirl, or swag iridescent decoration.
The vase clearly shows influences of Tiffany,Quezal, and perhapsDurandin shape. For the avid Fenton enthusiast and Collector, this surely would be a welcome addition and asset to the collection. Hand blown Fenton Art Glass from the Art Nouveau period, i.e. 1920's, is very difficult to find.
CONDITION:Very Good - Excellent. A few minuscule threading skips. No chips, cracks, damage or repairs.
DIMENSIONS:8 3/4" (22cm) tall.
