Viking Glass Co. Ruby Handled Basket Original Sticker
|| for item GV489

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.
