Fenton 1934 Mandarin Red 9" Crimped Fruit Bowl - #846
This Fenton treasure is the 9 inch crimped fruit bowl (ware #846) in mandarin red, a piece and opaque color combination that was produced only in 1934, long before Fenton began marking its glassware. According to Whitmyer's 'Fenton Art Glass 1907-1939,' mandarin red had a short production run, from 1933 through 1935, with these marbled pieces causing the 'greatest excitement' among collectors.
This fabulous flared rim, crimped bowl stands 3-1/2" high and measures 9 inches in diameter, at the widest point. A gorgeous piece in excellent condition, with a straw mark on the inside surface, along the marbling line, but no nicks, chips, or cracks.
