A large butterfly hovers in the center of a spray of tulips. The exterior pattern is Inverted Feather and Fan, also used on Dugan's Grape Arbor fruit bowl. These large bowls are often squared like this one and bring excellent prices in purple. Fenton apparently acquired the mold and made ruffled bowls in various colors. The back of the new items is a diamond pattern.
