Kittens, Fenton
Although there is no shortage of Kittens pieces (they account for about 0.7 percent of all carnival), they continue to be highly popular and very desirable. Above left are most of the shapes seen in the pattern. Shown are a cup and saucer, a cereal bowl (always round and deep) in blue, a banana dish (or card tray) in powder blue, a flat plate, a toothpick holder, and a six-ruffled bowl in blue. At the right is a rare whimsied spittoon in marigold. Blue is also known. Amethyst is a rare color in Kittens, blue quite scarce. Most items have four sets of kittens, a few have two sets.
