Blue Holly Compote
From HOACGA bulletin February, 2004
The Fenton Holly compote continues to be a popular collectable among carnival glass enthusiasts. They can be found in a number of shapes and in numerous basic glass colors as well as many subtle color variations. And like many collectors we have accumulated our share of them over the years. Marigold seems to be the most common color, but one particular marigold compote, that we considered as the most desirable shape was the tight ruffled or three-in-one edge compote. We always suspected that this shape would be found in other colors and only recently we have discovered that this shape was made in a pretty cobalt blue glass. And, of course, the possibility exists that other colors could surface in the three-in-one shape.
Should anyone have this compote in a color other than marigold or blue, please share this with us. So the many Fenton Holly compote collectors out there will have another affordable "goody" to look for. Webster's dictionary defines "Goody" as something that is particularly attractive, pleasurable, good or desirable. Wouldn't a nice-looking red or white Holly compote with this shape fit into this category?
