Dave Fetty "Hearts and Feathers" Vase
This spectacular vase is surely one of Fenton glass artisan Dave
Fetty's absolutely finest works! Using a Milk Glass core and Ruby
glass for his special touches, Dave has created four perfect
hearts, four areas of pulled feathers, and the topmost edge. There
is only one word for the total effect of Dave's efforts: WOW! This
vase stands 11" tall and is embossed with Dave's personal stamp.
This piece also has Dave's signature, and he has even added the
specific date this Hearts and Feathers vase was created: "3-9-06".
