Cherries, Fenton

10/17/2016

This pattern is amazingly like Millersburg's Hanging Cherries but it was in fact made by Fenton. Only known in the 9 1/2 inch banana boats shown here and very rare. This blue example sold in 1998 for $2,700. In 2016, another blue example, or perhaps this one, sold at auction for $950. There are several other blue examples known.

Unlike the blue example, the only known marigold example has a floral interior and was at one time in a midwest collection. It's possible these were experimental pieces that never made it into full production.

Note: This Fenton Cherries pattern is also used on the exterior of the Mikado Compotes.
