Fenton Silver Crest 8" Double Ruffled Bowl Candy Dish Vintage Pristine Condition
Silver Crest is easily one of the loveliest patterns Fenton ever created. The line featured pieces rendered in classic milk glass with a rim of clear glass. The contrast was so perfect that the rim often looked like silver metal rather than clear glass. Many Silver Crest pieces have a ruffled or crimped rim. The ruffled rims are a riot of curls that encircle the rim. The crimped rims are more even and resemble crimped Christmas candy, but on a smaller scale.
This beautiful bowl features the ruffled rim. It is in pristine condition with no chips, cracks or flea bites. The dish is approximately 2-1/4" tall; the upper diameter is 8", while the diameter across the base is 4-5/8". Prior to 1973 Fenton marked its pieces with various stick-on paper labels that usually wore away with cleaning and handling. After 1973 the Fenton mark was embossed on the glass. This piece is unmarked, dating it to 1973 or earlier.
After more than 100 years in business, Fenton closed its doors in 2011. You'll find pieces at auctions and estate sales, but the older Fenton pieces in pristine condition are already getting hard to find in some areas. This is a truly lovely piece that would thrill a collector.
