Fenton has been producing beautiful art glass since 1905 and this cranberry colored vase is just another example of their fine craftsmanship.
Though lacking the usual human figures being depicted, the white enamel scene on this piece is typical of the "Mary Gregory" style of decorating. Personally, I really like this design...it's a bit more general, and the contrast of the enamel against the luscious cranberry background is stunning.
Very generous in size, the vase is approximately 10 1/2" in height and 5 1/2" at the widest point. From its gracefully ruffled rim to its ground and polished base, this piece is in excellent condition...free of nicks, chips, cracks or discoloration. It bears the impressed Fenton logo along with the signature of the artist, Diane Gessel. Quite lovely!
