Fine Rib, footed

One of the most confusing vase patterns. Several manufacturers made similar pieces, each shaping the top differently. At one point, the jack-in-the-pulpit version was the only one known, so the pattern became known by that name--although a variety of top shapes are now known. The piece on the left is Northwood and brought $275 at a 1998 auction. On the right is the Fenton version; it sold for $60 at the same auction, The Fenton version has a ring around the stem just above the foot. Note that there is a small Dugan vase, called Thin Panel, that comes in a jack-in-the-pulpit shape and is sometimes misidentified as this one.

In late 2020, Dave Noyes sent me these photos of a Fenton footed Fine Rib vase, the first I had seen without the familiar top shaping. I was unaware that Fenton had made any examples with the plain round top, but sure enough, here is one.
