Cactus, Fenton, St. Clair, Others

Hartung Book Three: Cactus

Fenton made the Cactus pattern for Levay in aqua opal in 1979 and red in 1982. Cruets sold in 2014 for $75 and 2015 for $55. The 6-inch spittoon sold at auction in 2004 for $80; another in 2015 for $$50. The red basket sold on eBay in 2004 for $204 another in 2015 for $30 and another in 2016 for $55.

The aqua opal cruet (250 made) sold for $45 in 1999; a similar on eBay in 2003 for $225.

In 2016, an ice blue tumbler sold for $25, a marigold for $20, a purple for $25, a red for $20, a vaseline for $25, and a white for $5.

Toothpick holders were made by Fenton in aqua opal for Levay; they sell for $15 to $25 on eBay. Many toothpick holders are unmarked like the red example shown here, and some are marked for Summit (a "V" in a circle) like the amethyst one here. These sell for $15 to $20.

Shakers are also known. Some of these were iridized by St. Clair but as they are long out of business, the molds may well rest elsewhere. A set of blue shakers by St. Clair sold at live auction in 2004 for $35; an amethyst set, unmarked, for $32 on ebay in 2004, along with a toothpick holder.

The jack-in-the-pulpit vase in red on the left, apparently made from the toothpick holder, sold in 2012 for $75. The Cactus 7-piece water set by Fenton in aqua opal sold in 2013 for $625. In 2016, a water set like that above but with just 5 tumblers sold for $325.
