|While these 7-inch tall vases are listed as Idyll, they're really part of the Waterlily and Cattails family. They're quite rare. I photographed this one at a 1993 auction where it brought $600. There are several known in marigold and one ruffled example in amethyst.
In 2008, an example with a turned in top sold for $1,100. In marigold.
In 2017, a flared out marigold example sold for $2,100.
In 2018, three vases in marigold sold tor $550, $600 and $700.
|Among the few Idyll vases known is this ruffled one in amethyst that sold in 2009. It brought just $450, no doubt because it is cracked around the bottom. |

|Fenton seems to have made the Idyll vases in a wide variety of shapes. This marigold example can best be described as a hyacinth shape.|
|What a find! This unusually tall Idyll vase is owned by Samatha Prince. It is ten inches tall and in amethyst.
