Click Image for Gallery
Beautiful seven-piece Fenton carnival glass water set consisting of a pitcher and six tumblers in Fenton's Butterfly & Fern pattern (pattern #910), in an iridescent marigold, Fenton's Golden. Also known as Butterfly and Plume, the pitcher has a crimped top and stands an impressive 9-1/2" high, with a base diameter of 6", while the tumblers measure 3-7/8" high, with a rim diameter of 3".
Produced exclusively in the pitcher/tumbler water sets, this Butterfly & Fern set dates to around 1918, a time long before Fenton began marking its wares. In very good condition, with no nicks, chips, or cracks noted, the inner surface of the pitcher base has a thin, irregular extra layer, likely the result of applying the metallic salt solution that produced the carnival effect.
