Vintage miniature epergne

Beginning in the late 1970s, Dorothy Taylor began having glass makers create souvenir pieces for her Encore glass club. In the early 1980s she had a mold maker make a series of miniature baskets that were pressed and iridized by Fenton. Shown above are a Farmyard basket in peach opal (1984) that sold 1999 for $35 and a red Kittens basket (1992) that sold at the same auction for $100.
Shown here are two other baskets that sold at the same auction. Green Elks baskets sold for $40 and $85 in 2016 and 2017. The blue panther basket went for $35. Also in the series of baskets were Pony in vaseline opal, Stag and Holly in teal, Dragon and Lotus in pink, and Lions in green opal.
