Lotus and Grape, Fenton

This is another of Fenton's paneled designs. The name is very appropriate as there are lotus blossoms and bunches of grapes repeated in a design around the pattern.

Hartung Book Two: Lotus and Grape

Plates in any color are highly prized. The above blue bonbon was considered by the auctioneer to be the best he had seen. It brought $1,450 in 2018. Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.

In 2005, Mike Mings sent me this photo of a 7-inch Lotus and Grape bowl he owns. It's marigold with a slight green tint to the base glass. What makes it unusual is the jack-in-the pulpit-shape. I'd not heard of such an example before.

Also in 2005, I received these photos from Gaynor and Frank in Australia showing their 7-inch ruffled bowl in celeste blue. I'd not heard of this color before but since then several have sold.
