Baskets like Fenton!
Our new Spring basket (5733
66) will make
a beautiful addition to your collection! Fill this iridized basket
with flowers, potpourri, candies, or Easter eggs! Made in our new,
refreshing Key Lime glass, this baskets is made with a mould originally from the Dugan
Glass Company that dates back
to the early 20th century.
The basket features a fine
rib-twisted handle and ribbon candy crimp with a Blue Lagoon ring. The lovely, soft peachy-pink floral design (decorated inside and
out) was created by Kim Barley.
Fenton started creating baskets in the late 1930s. Attaching basket handles requires a great deal of
skill. There's less than 30 seconds to attach and shape
before the glass cools down and is no longer workable. In the
1950s, company President Frank M. Fenton and his brother Bill
Fenton, who was
Vice-President, decided that each Fenton basket
handler should have a distinctive mark so that collectors could
identify the artisan who created their basket. These marks are
impressed at the base of each side of the handle. We currently
have five skilled basket handlers at Fenton. The basket shown
above features Butch Wright's "bulls-eye" design handler's mark. To view more

handpainted on a creamy satin pottery. As an added touch, a

piece with a pink ribbon.
This collection includes functional mix

Thank you gifts, or "just because." Shown above
