|Long Thumbprint, Fenton|
|Pretty much a run-of-the-mill vase pattern. Often found at flea markets and malls, usually in green. Four rows of thumbprints around the trunk. The jack-in-the-pulpit versions are rare, however, and worth picking up when found. Regular versions range in height from about 7 inches to 12 inches.
The vase on the right is not a Long Thumbprint. While similar, there is a difference in the base and only three rows of thumbprints around the vase. Nothing is known about its origin. In amethyst, it sold for $900 in 2003 and for $2,300 in 2007. We are calling this vase Long Thumbprint Not and you can find more about it here.
Amethyst/purple, 10 (2014), 15, 25 (both 2015), 5, 20 (both 2016)
