Heavy Pineapple, Fenton

A rare pattern found on the exterior of 10 inch footed bowls. Marigold, blue, amber, and white are known. An amber example sold for $500 in 1999; a marigold for $2,800 in 2000 and in 2008, another in marigold sold for $275. In 2009, a ruffled blue bowl sold for $1,100 and in 2010 a marigold bowl brought $550. In 2012, a marigold ruffled fruit bowl sold for $600. The above blue example has spectacular iridescence on the front. It is in a private collection.

In 2007, Fenton reissued the pattern in a three-piece water set in black with satin marigold iridescence.
