Fern, Fenton

Among the mysteries of Carnival Glass is why so few pieces of this pattern have ever been found. It's a blue low bowl with the edges turned up and resting on three feet. Once in the Don Moore collection and at one time on display in the Fenton museum. It sold in 2010 (with a small chip on a point) for $2,700. Also in 2010, a marigold chop plate was discovered and sold at auction for $4,500.

In 2019, a blue bowl, also with a chip on a point (possibly the same as above), sold for $4,000.

There is also a six-ruffled bowl in white/clambroth in the Fenton Museum. This piece sold at the Fenton Museum auction in 2014 for $3,410.

In 2016, a ruffled bowl listed as having light marigold coloring, sold for $1,600. It's possible this was the same bowl that had been in the Fenton Museum.

The above Fern example was listed as a marigold chop plate when it sold at the Karen Engel auction in 2017 for $41,000. It was noted as being the only one known. Probably the example noted above as selling in 2010. Photo courtesy Wroda Auctions.
