Blackberry Spray, Fenton

Blackberry Spray is a fairly easily found pattern. It has a spray of berries around the edge and a plain exterior. Most examples have four sets of berries, but some only two. Found in hats that are ruffled (sometimes crimped), with 2 sides up, square (4 sides up), or jack-in-the-pulpit. The ruffled example above left is in red opal and the crimped jack-in-the-pulpit is red--a common color in this pattern. Fenton also made a similar pattern with a band of short vertical lines just inside the berries, Blackberry Banded.

This crimped edge hat in vaseline with marigold overlay sold at the 2012 Heart of America Carnival Glass auction for $125. Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.

In 2021, Dave Noyes sent me this photo of one of his Blackberry Spray hats, a JIP version in marigold. What's unusual about it? The is not crimped as are most of the others he knows of. I have no records of any such
pieces having sold.
