This is the only known Butterfly and Tulip bowl known in peach opal. It sold at the 2017 auction of Karen Engle's collection for $17,000. Photo courtesy of Jim Wroda Auctions.
A large butterfly hovers in the center of a spray of tulips. The exterior pattern is Inverted Feather and Fan, also used on Dugan's Grape Arbor fruit bowl. These large bowls are often squared like this one and bring excellent prices in purple. Fenton apparently acquired the mold and made ruffled bowls in various colors. The back of the new items is a diamond pattern.

Peach opal is rare or unknown in most shapes.
