Viking Glass Co. Ruby Handled Basket Original Sticker
This beautiful, ruby red with applied clear glass handled basket was made by the Viking Glass Co. which was in existence from 1944 to 1970. They produced a line of Scandinavian style art glass in New Martinsville W. Virginia. This basket with a very fine rim in amber has often been mistaken for Georgian Fenton (1930's) and may have been made by Fenton for Viking Glass as they were located just a few miles apart on the Ohio River. The basket which is in perfect condition measures approx. 9 1/2 inches high by 7 1/2 inches across. A quality piece of art glass it still retains the original Viking Glass sticker marked "Viking Hand Made" with a viking ship logo.
